"I’m trying to tell you that I will fight for you. I won’t give up, I won’t let you down. You are worth so much more than I could tell you, and you are worth fighting for. So I will fight. Every day. Until you see that I will not walk away."

I’ll stay. (via brizzlewritesthings)


Anne Lamott, from Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life 

"We Were Made To Love

I don’t regret you, it’s foolish to regret someone you once loved. It shows your weak character, it’s exhausting to lie to yourself constantly trying to bury an emotion that will forever resurrect and to deny a feeling so real and pure is criminal. Love doesn’t die, it changes forms. With time it matures to something unbreakable. A combination of understanding, friendship, and loyalty. You taught me everything there is to know about love and I cherish it. You made me stronger. I may never see you again, and November may have scarred me. But I don’t regret you. But I can’t help but ask ..

.. Do you regret me ?

I heard, “I got tired of you.”
And it’s almost the same."

"I’m still drunk to the sound of my name coming from your lips.
And I want you so badly,
Yet, you seem to be alright without me.
Why are you alright without me?
Why is my hand quivering,
While yours is in someone else’s spine?
And I know you are sorry,
You are so fucking sorry,
But sorry doesn’t make me breath with ease,
Or stop me from drowning in a dark abyss of what if’s.
And maybe it was the empty promises,
Or the way you sometimes looked at me,
But I thought maybe you and I,
it could be us."

I know you are sorry (via theinfinitepath)

101 things I will teach my daughters (via herbau)


Are you a teen? This blog is for you!


1). I remember that time you called my home phone early on a Sunday morning. I barely got to say hello before you told me to get ready because you’d be there in 10 minutes. You said we’d go to a carnival and afterwards you’d eat me out for hours on the leather seats of your car which always got stuck to the back of my thighs. My knees felt weak at the thought of foggy windows and your hot breath against my neck. I couldn’t even respond in the fear that my dad would hear so I just grabbed my bag and left when I heard your car pull into the drive way.

2). You said we were written in the stars so I looked up in the sky to take a peek and ended up burning my eyes out. It scares me sometimes that something so beautiful to look at from afar can tear your insides apart.

3). Maybe it was that summer that made me love you. Maybe it was the way you’d always wear your hair up and drops of perspiration would shine on your skin like thousands of
diamonds. Or maybe because of the way your eyes melted through my bones like a fierce cancer under the hot sun. But then when winter came, God it was freezing, it was cold just like you. Goosebumps covered your body from head to toe and stuck out like daggers. My arms weren’t your home anymore and you couldn’t touch me without slicing my arm up. But I’d hold you just as tight with one arm as I did with two.

4). In early November, we threw our razors into the sea together. You kissed my cold lips hard as the wind turned my skin blue. Nothing else mattered in that moment more than you. Now it’s almost a year later and I’m taking apart my pencil sharpeners for something much more vicious than erasing my mistakes.

5). You said my eyes reminded you of outer space when we first met and that every time you kissed me you swore you felt galaxies on your tongue. Now you’re wishing on the moon for someone else and counting new constellations with no room for me.

6). When I had a panic attack on the school bathroom and the green tiles turned red with blood, you waited for me outside and brought me home. We laid in bed and didn’t say a thing. My bed spread matched your eyes and I kept staring at it because you wouldn’t look at me. It was quiet but it was also loud too. The silence was a killer and I couldn’t tell who was more pissed off at me, the voices in my head telling me not to tell you what I did or you screaming at me for doing it again. I want to do it again. I’m sorry.

7). My therapist advised me to write my thoughts down on paper so I started etching my soul into this notebook instead of making a mess out of my flesh. But then I ran out of ink and had to use the blood from the sink instead.

Miserable At Best, Mayday Parade

I'm Shelby.
In life, you have to write your own story, make your own fairy tale endings.<3
If you believe, it can happen.
You're gonna face mountains, just climb and you'll learn that the view is great once you get there.

Look in my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person that loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you, the right person is still gonna think the sun shines out your ass. That's the kinda person worth sticking with.

My Favs?
