“Because on some level, even though it never turns out to be true, and even though I should know better, I still expect life to be like the movies.”—E. Lockhart, The Boy Book: A Study of Habits and Behaviours, Plus Techniques for Taming Them (via creatingaquietmind)
Do you ever get that feeling where you don’t want to talk to anybody? You don’t want to smile and you don’t want to fake being happy. But at the same time you don’t know exactly whats wrong either. There isn’t a way to explain it to someone who doesn’t already understand. If you could want anything in the world it would be to be alone. People have stopped being comforting, and being alone never was. At least when your alone no one will constantly ask you ‘whats wrong’ and there isn’t anyone who won’t take ‘i don’t know’ for an answer. You feel the way you do just because, you hope the feelings will pass soon and that you will be able to be yourself again, but until then, all you can do is wait.
“Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm … As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands. One for helping yourself, the other for helping others.”—Audrey Hepburn
