We live in an age where we feel guilt whenever we have to cut someone off but the reality is that some relationships do need to die, some people do need to be unfollowed and defriended. We aren’t meant to be this tethered to the people in our past. The Internet mandates that we don’t burn bridges and keep everyone around like relics but those expectations are unrealistic and unhealthy. Simply put, we don’t need to know what everyone else is up to. We’re allowed to be choosy about who we surround ourselves with online and in real life, even if it might hurt people’s feelings.
Ryan O’Connell, You Don’t Have To Be Friends With Everybody (via larmoyante)
This. This. This.
Having best friends is great. Your twenties would be no fun without having someone to care about your well-being…
Someone who cares about your future: “You have ten minutes to change out of your yoga pants, we’re going out… do you want to die alone?”
I’m not where I need to be, but thank god I’m not where I used to be.
Feelings are just visitors, let them come and go.
If you’re like me and want to wear makeup that makes you look like you aren’t wearing makeup then you should totally check out Smashbox’s Camera Ready BB Cream.
Bonus points for having SPF. I normally HATE face products with SPF for this is magic and doesn’t feel… SPFy?
You either like me or you don’t. It took me twenty-something years to learn how to love myself, I don’t have that kinda time to convince somebody else.
If you can’t handle me at my Amanda Bynes, you don’t deserve me at my Beyonce.
This means that life is essentially a solo trip. You’ll have this endless parade of visitors, though, which is nice. Characters you couldn’t have imagined will appear, stay for a minute or maybe a few months or maybe many years, and then leave you to your trip…But you’re still there, and you’re better than you were.
