“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them - that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”—Lao Tzu (via likethesun) (via oceanofmind)
that I’m constantly putting myself out there for people- bending over backwards for them, doing anything and everything possible to be there and to make things easier for them- but all of that goes unnoticed.
I hate constantly feeling unnappreciated. I hate feeling like I’m being taken for granted. Maybe I just set myself up for all of this putting myself out there so much. Maybe I set myself up for the disappointment, for the heartbreak. But I can’t help it because that’s who I am.
I care about people. I’m one to put my best foot forward for anyone and everyone, no matter how badly they hurt me or how badly they make me feel. I just feel like everyone could use someone who’s there for them, who will genuinely care for them when no one else will.
I used to think that was an attribute that everyone loved to see in a person. But now, now I just feel like the kindness I show towards everyone is just something people take advantage of.
I’m starting to believe that I care just a little too much for people who don’t necessarily “deserve” it - if caring “too much” is even possible.
“I hope that someday, somebody wants to hold you for twenty minutes straight, and that’s all they do. They don’t pull away. They don’t look at your face, they don’t try to kiss you. All they do is wrap you up in their arms, without an ounce of selfishness in it.”—Waitress (via kari-shma)
