I think the opposite of happiness is not unhappiness. The opposite of happiness is apathy, which is the loss of joy that we feel in our lives. Because if you think about it, unhappiness can sometimes make us breakup with people we shouldn’t be dating. Or unhappiness can cause us to move to do different jobs, or it can cause us to want to get better grades in school. Unhappiness can be very helpful. What I think becomes the problem is when we’ve lost that joy in our lives. When we lose that joy striving towards our potential.
Can we spend a day together? Just you and me?
What though the radiance which was once so bright
Be now for ever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;
In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be;
In the soothing thoughts that spring
Out of human suffering;
In the faith that looks through death,
In years that bring the philosophic mind.
am I the only one that thinks “I love you.” & “I’m in love with you.” are two totally different things
"I love you" means your heart has made a connection with that person.
"I’m IN love with you" means your heart is invested in them.
What if you slept?
What if you slept
And what if
In your sleep
And what if
In your dream
You went to heaven
And there plucked a strange and beautiful flower
And what if
When you awoke
You had that flower in you hand
Ah, what then?”
― Samuel Taylor Coleridge
if school isn’t a place to sleep
then home isn’t a place to do homework
And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality. I’d find you and I’d choose you.
Experience is a brutal teacher, but you learn. My god, do you learn.
The thing about this world is- no matter what you feel, however abstract and unbearable it may be, there will always be two types of people. Someone who is feeling exactly the same and someone who has survived what you are going through. From the first person, find relief that you are not alone. And from the second person, find hope that you will pull through too.
I’m always soft for you, that’s the problem. You could come knocking on my door five years from now and I would open my arms wider and say ‘come here, it’s been too long, it felt like home with you.’
I love you, that means I’m not just here for the pretty parts. I’m here no matter what.
I will love you through simple and the struggle.
If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. If they don’t, they never were.
