What you see and what you are shown are two different things. Perspective and perception… we need an open mind and good insight, in order to see the bigger picture. There is always much more underneath the surface. People build barriers over time, in order to protect their minds and to stop themselves being hurt. People forgive but they don’t forget. How a person acts… Who they are is usually due to conditioning. Everything happens for a reason. I know its difficult but try to live life in that other persons shoes, because nobody’s perfect but we all like to be understood. You will never find happiness being half in or half out, scared to commit. You can’t be someone’s other if you are not their friend first. You can’t expect to be taken seriously if you are always joking. You can never have a laugh if you are always serious. Communication works, silence only pauses. Highlight negativity in order to construct, and progress, always reinforce positivity, positively. Remember we are all human and many are just trying to live their lives. Tomorrow is another chance to learn, grow, and understand more about the people in the world we live in. I’ll see you there. by ChakaBars (via kushandwizdom)
It’s better to feel pain than never feel at all
Sometimes I just think about how easy it would be if I would just kill myself, but then, other ideas pop to my mind. Why throw away a life when I can dedicate myself to the others? Maybe I will raise a few abandoned kids…I will study, make a lot of money and do a lot of charity work. I don’t care about myself at all, I just care about this life. I don’t want it to be useless.
You call yourself a free spirit, a “wild thing,” and you’re terrified somebody’s gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you’re already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it’s not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It’s wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself. by Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany’s (via feellng)
