Do not tell everyone your story. You will only end up feeling more rejected. People cannot give you what you long for in your heart. The more you expect from people’s response to your experience of abandonment, the more you will feel exposed to ridicule.”
— Henri. J.M. Nouwen (via wordsnquotes)
Parent to child at the library: Shhh...remember what we said about being loud in the library?
Child: We'll wake up the books.
Parent: That's right.
When was the last time anyone ever told you how important you are?”
Maya Angelou (via mehfil)
I don’t even remember.
