“Be with someone who meets you half way. Be with someone who brings you a glass a water when they get themselves one. Be with someone who makes sure you don’t endure bad moments by yourself. Be with someone your ex hates and your mother loves. Be with someone who alters you, not changes who you are. Spend your life with your better half, not your other half.”—August XXVIII (via bonvivantx)
“And now we’re supposed to go back to our normal lives. That’s what people do. They have these amazing experiences with another person, and then they just go home and clean the bathroom or whatever.”—Susane Colasanti, When It Happens (via larmoyante)
“A stirring warmth flowed from her, as if her heart was trying to come out to you concealed in one of those breathless, thrilling words.”—F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby (via youlooklikesomethingblooming)
When I worked at a non-profit that handled suicide prevention, I had access to the donation records. Each month, a specific man donated 15$ to our organization. It was like clockwork.. same day, same man, he had been doing this for over 4 years. It always seemed odd to me but I never questioned it… until I saw a note attached one month. "For Noah- Dad"
his donation was once his child’s allowance.
I can promise you, they would miss you for the rest of their lives.
