How many words have you spoken in your life?
How many did you mean?
How many did you understand? Arkaye Kierulf (via thatkindofwoman)

before you date someone with a mental illness, remember: saying, “you’re beautiful” won’t balance the chemicals in their brain.

and don’t fucking say, “i’ll be here for you, no matter what,” if you don’t mean it.

don’t think you’re fixing them by saying, “i love you.” because you’re not

You clench your teeth. You look up. You tell yourself that if they see you cry, it will hurt them, and you will be nothing but a Sadness in their lives, and you must not become a mere sadness, so you will not cry, and you say all of this to yourself while looking up at the ceiling, and then you swallow even though your throat does not want to close and you look at the person who loves you and smile. John Green, The Fault in Our Stars (via epicjohngreenquotes)
