keep it simple, and real...

Start ignoring people who threaten your joy.
Literally, ignore them.
Say nothing.
Don’t invite any parts of them into your space.

I’m becoming more silent these days. I’m speaking less and less in public. But my eyes, god damn, my eyes see everything. (via c0ntemplations)

Ever walked on thin ice for miles and miles but didn’t realize it until the end? (via deeperthanshallow)

Don’t ask yourself, “Is this normal?” Instead, ask yourself:

Is this healthy?

Is this good for me?

I find it bizarre how
The ones that rip your heart out
Are the ones that felt it beating vulnerably,
Felt every pulse, vein and artery
They are the ones that felt the size and shape
To carve it out,
Learnt how to dip their fingers in
To fondle with it delicately, to tease out the love
Then grab with force to crush and yank it out.
Rip every vein so theres nothing
In your chest
Other than the pain of a stolen heart.

The happiness of God-Almighty from seeing a sinner repenting is much more than the joy of a lone traveler who finds his missing animal together with the provisions of journey in a dark night. Imam Baqir (a.s) ~ Kitab al-Kafi ~ Volume: 2, Page: 436

I have this weird obsession about buying books and looking at them with a smile, even if I won’t read them soon. At least they are mine now. (via saroabdelaziz)
