“Here’s to the Christians who believe in gay rights
Here’s to the girls who aren’t suicidal
Here’s to the people that live in the damn Bible Belt but are still democrats
Here’s to the boys who don’t use girls
Here’s to the girls who don’t have an eating disorder
Here’s to the parents that stayed together
Here’s to the stepparents that took care of a child that wasn’t even theirs
Here’s to the siblings that aren’t close
Here’s to the people who finally stand up for that one person
Here’s to the girls who aren’t daddy’s little princess
Here’s to the girls who can’t cook
Here’s to the boys who actually care about school
Here’s to the boys who know how to respect a girl
Here’s to the girls who don’t have body issues
Here’s to the girls who don’t get any guys
Here’s to the grandparents who took care of their grandchildren when their children couldn’t
Here’s to everyone society seems to forget, because we don’t fit that mold that everyone needs to see or talk about.

“1)Learn to put on your bracelets and zip up your dresses by yourself. There will be times when you will be alone.
2)Get on a long plane ride. Look out the window. Understand the immensity of our world. Understand your absolute importance.
3)Press the send button. If you don’t say it now, you never will.
4)Do not sneer at happiness or roll your eyes at sadness. Be aware that apathy is not healthy.
5)You are more than the amount of people who want to have sex with you.
6)That pit in your stomach when he doesn’t text you back, it shouldn’t be there. No one should be able to control you like that.
7)It will get better, but it will never be perfect. Learn to live through the small moments of happiness. When they disappear, remember they will resurface.
8)Please, please, take care of yourself. You are everything to somebody. You are everything to yourself.”—Someone. (via isthereanyscape)
“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”—Haruki Murakami (via paintdeath)
