Learn to let go

How does one avoid loss in the first place? Contrary to popular belief, it's not attachment that cause loss- attachment feels fine. It's detachment that hurts. Learn to let go.
Some suggest that to avoid loss, one should never be attached to anything. They give the example of a hand in water: when the hand is removed from the water, the hand leaves no impression. These people say the reason the hand leaves no trace in the water is because the water is not attached to the hand.
On the contrary, while the hand is in the water, it is very attached to the hand. It surrounds it, enfolds it, embraces it. Allow yourself to experience life as fully as water experiences the hand, then let go completely as water.
Yes, the water leaves a little of itself on the departing hand, as we leave a little of ourselves with the people and things we touch, but for the most part, when it comes the time to go, let go.
The hand could no more hold the water than the water could hold the hand. A soon as on…
You know, the right guy won't change you. He won't subtly pressure you. He won't tell you who you can and can't talk to about the two of you. He won't hide the fact that you're hanging out. He's not gonna tell you you're wrong for the feeling...for being a girl.
The right guy will show you off to his friends. He'll take it as slow as you want. He'll only go as far as you're comfortable with. He'll take you out to places, even if it's just a fast good place or the store. He'll actually sit through your stupid girly Disney movies with you because he wants to watch them with you.
The right guy will come along someday, youo just gotta tough it out and wait for him. But whatever you do, don't settle. You deserve so much more.

The Falling ManOne of the most haunting images captured from 9/11, it shows a man free-falling after he has jumped from one of the windows of North Tower. He was one of the people they call “Jumpers”, who chose to jump to their death rather than get suffocated by the smoke or get buried under the rubble. Some called them cowards, while some sensationalized them as tragic symbols of 9/11. But the fact of the matter is, it was a hard choice for anyone to make, and one can not really judge the decisions a person makes in times like these.People, you rant so much about how you have a hard time making choices. Whether you should work on your assignment or go out with your friends. Whether you should date this guy or that guy. Whether you should break up with your boyfriend or not. Whether you should wear the pink blouse or the baby blue one. Imagine the choice this man had to make.
If you asked me last year where I saw myself in a year, I could quickly tell you that this wasn't it. Everything I am right now is nothing like I thought I would have been. The way things are in general are nothing like I thought they would be. To see people I couldn't live without last year walk away from my life and become strangers, to see people that were once strangers, mean more than the world to me. Seeing time fly by in the blink of an eye and feeling like nothing ever changes. - Feeling like everything has stayed the same through out these days, yet looking back at where I was around this exact time last year and everything, different.

I'm not an expert at relationships. I don't know how to handle every fight we're going to have, and I will never be a perfect person. We're both still young, and we still have a lot more to learn. But I'm willing to take chances, and risk it all, and learn everything there is to know just so I can keep us together. I won't give up on you.
Sleeping with a smile.

One of the greatest feelings ever. Knowing that, you’re so tired, yet it was all worth it, because your day was just completely amazing. You’re content, and satisfied with how the day treated you. Nothing got in the way of your happiness that day, and everything just went as planned. Your mind is clear from all negativity, and you’re just, happy. You go to sleep knowing that, it wasn’t a wasted day, and you didn’t have to worry about a thing.

“Maybe we should talk about art. Tito’s got real talent, don’t you think? You know something? I saw a picture just like this once, in a museum. Only it wasn’t a black man, it was a jewish man. And instead of the big lips he had a really big nose, like a rat’s nose. But he wasn’t just one particular jewish man.This was a drawing of all jews.And these drawings were put in the newspapers by the most famous gang in history. You think you know all about gangs? You’re amateurs. This gang will put you all to shame. And they started out poor and angry and everybody looked down on them. Until one man decided to give them some pride, an identity… and somebody to blame.
You take over neighborhoods? That’s nothing compared to them. They took over countries. You want to know how? They just wiped out everybody else. Yeah, they wiped out everybody they didn’t like and everybody they blamed for their life being hard. And one of the ways they did it was by doing this: see, they print pictu…
I like to cuddleyour arms around me. our bodies touching. i like the warmth i get from being next to you. the occasional kisses on the lips and cheeks. the smiles i get when we look at each other. hearing your breath when it gets quiet. how i can hear your heartbeat when my head is on your chest.

i feel safe, comfortable, and smile like an idiot.

Just in case you're curious.

Wow. This is truly a very inspiring picture, in my opinion. It encompasses everything that we are trying to say about beauty. No matter what you look like on the outside (above ground), it’s about what’s inside that counts (under the soil). Those people in magazines and on television flaunt their bodies and so we feel as though, compared to them, we aren’t great at all. But that’s the thing, we don’t even know them. We have no idea who they are as a person. We know ourselves though, and we know that we try to be good people, and that’s all that counts. Always believe that you are unique, and beautiful.

When a guy is in love, he tries to put everything forth just for his girl. He wants to be the reason why she wakes up in the morning. He wants to be the reason why she can feel comfortable around him while at school or in the mall. He wants to be the reason she can smile for no reason. He wants to be the reason why she’s always going to try and stay positive. He knows there are going to be ups and downs but he also knows without each others love and trust, the relationship won’t be strong. Any girl wants the right man for her but a guy wants the same thing. A guy wants to feel loved. A guy wants to have the feeling that someone cares for him. He may still try to act like a playa because of how society treats a guy. As much as a girl wants to find the right guy, so does the guy. I’m sure there is a match for everyone. You have to have trust in yourself and respect yourself before you can love another human being.

“I wanted you to fight for me.”What do you do when your relationship is on the rocks? When your love feels hard? You try to fix it. You try at least. That one ounce of faith you have can actually make your relationship stronger. I wouldn’t leave without a fight. I want to make this work. I need this. Especially, I need you. You keep me sane in a way that keep all my thoughts cleared. A relationship is based on trust, dedication, and full heart. It’s sad how people give up so easily. After one stupid fight, they’re gone. Your relationship didn’t mean shit. They mean shit to you. How can you say that about a person who spent constant hours trying to make you happy. They were there for you when you were sad, they stayed throughout all the fights and after that one argument, you threw it all away. Is your love so naive now that they weren’t good enough for you? You had no time for them? You guys grew apart? I don’t think so. Love requires that passion and fire that will still burn no mat…

relationships last long not because they`re destined to last long. relationships last long because two brave people made a choice: to keep it, fight for it, and to work for it. meanwhile, other relationships fail not because they`re destined to fail. they fail because one of the two or both made the choice: to set each other free.

I hate standing alone. especially when you really need someone to be there with you and all you get is a bunch of shitty advice & replies like “haha oh.” or “lol k.” The feeling of being depressed, having a bad day, having no one beside you when you need them most all bundle up and slowly isolate your trust from people. you feel unimportant. You feel like you’re a bother to them, and that startles your negative side. Your esteem goes down. you’re just clueless of who you can talk to, who you can trust, and who you can depend on. Most hurtfully, you feel used because you tend to give thoughtful advice & longass replies but your in return thank you is garbage.

Multi-awarded actress Maggie Smith was halfway through her cancer treatment when she made Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince, starring as Professor Minerva McGonagall. “I was hairless. I had no problem getting the wig on. I was like a boiled egg,” she said.The chemotherapy was, she said, “something that makes you feel much worse than the cancer itself”. “You feel horribly sick. I was holding on to railings, thinking ‘I can’t do this’,” she said.But she insisted she will “stagger through” the final Harry Potter film, The Deathly Hallows. Let’s just pause and ponder on how awesome this woman is, a true Gryffindor.

Sometimes you just got to have to appreciate yourself first before you are able to appreciate someone else. So things happen to fall into place, but not as quite as you want it to be. Trust me, you don’t have to allow yourself to drown. Keep yourself bright and let everything flow into place. Sometimes it is better to keep things right as it is rather than pushing what is not meant to be.Before you try to love someone else, before you try to keep things good, try to love yourself and get along with yourself. You can never know someone if don’t know yourself. How you see life is how you see yourself.I know you don’t get where I am coming from, but trust me, you just have to read between the lines.

have you ever had late night phone calls/texts every night? then all of a sudden, something/someone ends up changing, because either someone is too busy, gave up on each other, or maybe found someone else better? you then later lay there in bed thinking what you have done wrong for them to leave or how it would have been if nothing changed. once you close your eyes, a bunch of memories and scenarios start to hit you, but you try to find that one memory/scenario to sleep to. you found it, you think about it even more, and once you fall asleep, you start to hear your phone ring. but that wasn’t your phone. that was you, wanting and needed him/her to call/text you again. that was you, needing their presence, their scent, their love next to you again. at this point, all you can do now is face the fact that everything has changed, and nothing ever lasts for the amount of time as you want it to. thinking that you would have done anything to get that person to even say “hello.” to you is now…

couples will always fight but eventually they realize what’s important. they get over it, remember how much they love each other and that’s that. the real couples that care about each other really try their hardest to make it work. until finally, one gets ready to leave and the other stops them and they finally realize what they both have. they talk about their feelings, they comfort one another, they put all that they have on the line and they than finally realize that they both can’t live without each other.

just tell her how you feel. look, i understand the amount of courage it takes, the nerves involved. i understand that she might reject you, and shatter your already damaged heart. your friendship might break apart, leaving you stranded on a metaphoric island of loneliness. you might lose your best friend, the only one who knows you inside and out. and she could very possibly never look at you the same way, as if your face was scarred by the guilt of knowing she tore your heart in two. but she could very possibly tell you the same thing, that she’s been in love with your smile since the very first day she set her eyes upon it. she could tell you that she longs for your embrace at night, thinking of you in every thought, dreaming of you in every dream. you might actually build on your friendship, making the link between lover and best friend. and she could very possibly never look at you the same way, as if your face reminds her each and every day that love works in mysterious ways. so …
what’s on my mind? I’m fuckin tired. I’m tired of caring for people who don’t give a shit about me. I’m tired of waiting for texts that won’t come, and thinking things will be different yet they never change. I'm tired of giving out chances, only to be let down. I’m tired of putting forth 100% of effort and only getting 25% in return. I’m tired of broken promises, and of let downs, especially by the people who matter the most to me. I’m tired of making someone a priority, when in reality I’m just an option. I’m tired of shitty friends who are never there for me. I’m tired of assholes who only manipulate a situation from their own perspective, never even thinking about what someone else is going through. I’m tired of the same old bullshit over and over again.

Just an observation. But, I think girls just want that one boy. That one man who is true to her, and is willing to give her what she needs - unconditional love, that’s all. Girls want that one guy who reminds her that she’s beautiful, and appreciates her being. I think ladies want a tough guy who stands up for her, but also an honest boy who stands up to her when she sounds a bit unreasonable or out of line. From what I’ve noticed, via internet and through real life experiences, girls are on the search for that boy who actually listens to them; a guy who actually is able to give feedback, and responds with more than a, “mhm,” or “yeah, yeah.” you know what? maybe they want a guy who, even when he’s with his boys, still says “babe, hold my hand.” I’d say that girls want that one boy who’s theirs, but that’s an understatement. I think girls want that boy to focus on - the one to make their entire world. i don’t thinks girls want to fall to the ground, they just want to fall in love. But…
Let's stare at the roof, play with our fingers, talk about silly things, about serious things. Let's get high with the looks of your eyes to each other, disappear in bed, feel shots of energy through our bodies at the same time. Let's take pictures with our mind, share fears and embarrassing secrets, fall out of bed, wake up, feel the wind from the real world and don't see the difference.

Now try this. Repeat the first steps. Turn everything off. This time, turn the lights off too. Still hear that ringing?

Silence.
Try this. Turn off the music. Turn off the TV. If you have to, turn off the computer. Then go to another room, and sit. In total silence. Do you hear that? That ringing? People say it is your brain making up a sound to explain the silence.
People lied.
I can't tell you what is making that sound, but whatever it is, you don't want to meet it. It is trying to break through. Force its way onto out plane of existence. Now try this. Repeat the first steps. Turn everything off. This time, turn the lights off too. Still hear that ringing? Better hope you do. If you don't, it's because they have finally managed to break through.
And no amount of running will save you.

What the hell is wrong with them. They are disgusting people. I truly hope this comes back to haunt them. One day, when trying out for a job, they get rejected and never find a job again, because this picture reached a potential employer and he sent it to basically everyone. They are the ones to be punished.
Every single one of these people are pure hate. I hope something bad happens to every one of them. Karma better happen, assholes.
What if someone decided that it is wrong to be straight and if you WANT to be straight, then you should suffer the punishments? When are people going to understand that there’s absolutely nothing wrong about being either gay, lesbian, bisexual, transexual, pansexual, heterosexual or other?.. When are people going to understand that OUR SEXUAL ORIENTATION IS NOT A CHOICE?
Let me tell everyone a little fact. Homosexuality is found in a number of species, homophobia is only found in one. This makes me so fucking upset, people cannot help who they are attracte…

‘it’s okay i’m fine’ but hey, you will do anything to pass the “whats wrong?” sympathy talk. you will smile your heart out, and laugh till your chest hurts. but once you are finally alone, you just break down completely. shut down those walls. maybe even cry your heart out. but you are alone now, you don’t need to act anymore. it’s sad because someone that smiles, isn’t necessarily someone that is happy. they could just be hiding their tears, the pain. don’t assume that someone doesn’t have a bad life, just because they are great actors. just because they can smile. you don’t know anything about them.

We could happen. It's simple. It doesn’t have to be now, but i’m sure that if you gave us a chance, we could happen. I want this. You might not want it as much as I do, and this may not be the best decision that we’re making, but know what I want. I want there to be an us. want us to happen.
I still think about you from time, to time.
I can’t just forget about you or anything that ever happened between us no matter how hard I try. I can’t just let you go and ignore you. We’re not like how we used to be, but whatever. I still care about you, though. There’s not a day that you don’t cross my mind. I’m always thinking about what could’ve happened and what went wrong. I guess now, you’re just another name that pops up in my head a lot.
LETTING GO. i’m not letting go because i want to. i’m letting go because it’s for the best. not only for me, but for the both of us. yeah, i know we’ve been through a lot. it’s hard to just let everything go but we have to do this. it really hurts typing this out. the memories we shared, what we’ve been through, everything. you know, things are just not the same anymore. you stopped trying, while i’m still here trying so damn hard to get us back to how we used to be. but it seems like it’s not working. i love you a lot. i’m giving up because i tried everything & nothing is making it better. i have to move on with life & figure out what i need & what’s best for me. i gave it all & did everything just to keep us but things didn’t work out. just remember that, my feelings will always be here. it may change but i will always love you & you’ll always have a place in my heart. i hope that someday, we can try to work it out again. but i doubt that’s gonna happen. anyway, i…

first moves. most girls have trouble making first moves, and some live in complete expectation. for those who do live in expectation, here’s something you should know. let's just start by saying guys love girls who are confident about themselves. a girl that knows what she wants and doesn’t care for those who judge. women love unexpected surprises right? concur-vice versa, so do guys. if you want something, most likely he’s in same bubble. girls, if you have the urge and the desire of wanting, for example a kiss, then just simply.. kiss that mofo. you never know, what if he’s dying in silence of wanting to give you one, but doesn’t have the nerve to? it’s nice to help out here and there, it makes it much easier for the guy and the relationship itself. and if you don’t, i know for a fact once you get home, you will regret some parts that happened during the day. you only live once, don’t live it in regret.
I love youmeans I accept you for the person you are and that I do not wish to change you into someone else. It means that I will love you and stand by you even through the worst of times. It means loving you when you're in a bad mood or too tired to do the thing I want to do. It mean loving you when you're down not just when you're fun to be with.

I love youmeans that I know your deepest secrets and do not judge you for them. Asking in return that you do not judge me for mine. It mean that I care enough to fight for what we have and that I love you enough not to let go. It mean I'll be okay when you are with her.
Loving you means standing by you even when you are ripping my heartpiece by piece.

Ladies, go easy on your man. He’s not used to this thing you call love. He’s not used to the midnight phone calls, constant texts, your sweet essence, or just sticking with one girl. He’s trying his best, honest. Just give him some time, he’ll come around. When you’re in a fight with him, don’t get too angry either. You see, guys are very simple minded beings. We don’t overthink, we just act based on what we feel. We’re sorry if we upset you, we don’t mean to. We don’t mean to make you cry, and we hate it when you go to sleep upset. And we’re not even good for much. We can drive you around, buy you things, and try to make you happy as best as we can, but other than that, we have little to offer.You have to understand that it’s difficult to be a guy. You see, society makes us feel like we’ve failed if we’ve only got one girl. We’re supposed to crave sex and shoes. We listen to music rampant with expletives, and we’re supposed to have this magical thing called swag. Society tells us to …
