“You may not agree with a woman, but to criticize her appearance — as opposed to her ideas or actions — isn’t doing anyone any favors, least of all you.

You may think she’s ugly, but everyone else thinks you’re an idiot.”—

“Talking to a friend who does not balk at your insanity is like having a stiff drink. It fills you with glow. But when it wears off, everything is the same.”—Monkey Mind by Daniel Smith (via walkinthesnark)
“I like drinking coffee alone and reading alone. I like riding the bus alone and walking home alone. It gives me time to think and set my mind free. I like eating alone and listening to music alone. But when I see a mother with her child, a girl with her lover, or a friend laughing with her best friend, I realize that even though I like being alone, I don’t fancy being lonely. The sky is beautiful, but the people are sad. I just need someone who won’t run away.”
“An intimate relationship does not banish loneliness. Only when we are comfortable with who we are can we truly function independently in a healthy way, can we truly function within a relationship. Two halves do not make a whole when it comes to a healthy relationship: it takes two wholes.”—Patricia Fry (via lucifelle)
