"I might be too young to settle down and marry, but I’m definitely too old to be playing anymore games. I’m too old to just be talking to someone, too old to not know what’s really going on, and too old to be entertaining somebody with no intention of making it work. At this age, I’m only interested in consistency, stability, respect and loyalty. And I want to hear someone tell me that they love me and know they Goddamn mean it."

and when you make the switch from

"why won’t they date me??"

to

"do i even want to date them??"

things get very clear

youngblackandvegan:

this world is falling apart

hold your loved ones close

and never let a day pass

where they wonder how you feel about them

Don’t be afraid, because even the darkest period will pass. Everything passes and turns. The darkness will cease to be and will become light. Do not looking for outside yourself. Do not look for in the others’ eyes. Try to learn, day by day, to seek the light within you. Be yourself the light of your change. Light up your path. Breathe, listen to you, be calm and clear as a mirror of water. Be sincere and honest before all to yourself. Take courage in what you are and what you can do and let go of all the negative thoughts that weigh you down. Forgiven and accepted yourself, with your limits and your weaknesses. Restart from here, and learn every day to love yourself a little more, to don’t be afraid of your light and shine, day by day, step by step. Dedicated to all the Queens, who, without knowing, light love everything that surrounds them. -Zelide
Thank you to inspire me daily with your kindness and pure words of love.
Thank you Queen alexandraelle​ !

that voice that tells you that you’re not enough

is a liar

tell that voice

to shut the f$%! up 

"Don’t surrender your loneliness so quickly.
let it cut more deep.
Let it ferment and season you
as few human or even divine ingredients can.
Something missing in my heart tonight
has made my eyes so soft
my voice so tender
my need of God
absolutely clear."

one of the worst things about becoming educated on social issues is when people are like ‘you used to have a sense of humor’

no i used to have internalized prejudices which i’ve worked really hard to overcome and i realize now that your jokes are shitty

Always reblog this because becoming more socially aware makes you dislike a lot of people

flood people with compliments. make eye contact. don’t be the first one to let go of a hug. push yourself to run faster and further. listen intentionally.

"

You find yourself here again, broken hearted and alone. Maybe you are asking God why this keeps happening, or you are wondering if there is something wrong with you.

The reality is that we are overlooking the real reason for all of this, that Christ didn’t break your heart, and there is nothing wrong with you. Sometimes things don’t work out, we hurt and then we grow. We learn and we know. We live and we live well.

The storm is not always caused by God, but He is often times standing in the rain with us, just waiting for us to ask Him to let us under the umbrella with Him. It is when we can praise God through our tears, that we will start to see Him in our most desperate times.

So, your worth is not from that boy or girl, your worth is from God; stop counting the amount of heartbreaks you’ve had, and start counting and living in the goodness of God.
