Had a pretty difficult meeting, come out to find Jamie T’s new album sitting on my desk. Hal is the best.
I cannot make you understand. I cannot make anyone understand what is happening inside me. I cannot even explain it to myself.
Franz Kafka, The Metamorphosis (via larmoyante)
Humankind seems to have an enormous capacity for savagery, for brutality, for lack of empathy, for lack of compassion.
Annie Lennox (via larmoyante)
In case you ever foolishly forget; I’m never not thinking of you.
Virginia Woolf, Selected Diaries (via larmoyante)
Tell me all the secrets
that you have always
felt the need to keep
to yourself. Wrap your
words around the lines
of my palms; I promise
to always keep them
safe. If you let me,
I swear to love every
side of you that remains
Mariah Gordon-Dyke (via larmoyante)
Life is merely terrible; I feel it as few others do. Often—and in my inmost self perhaps all the time—I doubt that I am a human being.
Franz Kafka (via larmoyante)
Being alone is better than sitting next to a lover and feeling lonely.
Richard Linklater (via larmoyante)
It hurts until it doesn’t. You think it’s going to break you, but it won’t. You may not sleep as well at night, but you will be fine. Numb, but numb and fine are the same.
Scandal (via larmoyante)
Some friends don’t understand this. They don’t understand how desperate I am to have someone say, I love you and I support you just the way you are because you’re wonderful just the way you are. They don’t understand that I can’t remember anyone ever saying that to me. I am so demanding and difficult for my friends because I want to crumble and fall apart before them so that they will love me even though I am no fun, lying in bed, crying all the time, not moving. Depression is all about If you loved me you would.
Elizabeth Wurtzel, Prozac Nation (via larmoyante)
Until you heal the wounds of your past, you are going to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex; But eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, Stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories and make peace with them.
