So often we try to make other people feel better by minimizing their pain, by telling them that it will get better (which it will) or that there are worse things in the world (which there are). But that’s not what I actually needed. What I actually needed was for someone to tell me that it hurt because it mattered.
I have found this very useful to think about over the years, and I find that it is a lot easier and more bearable to be sad when you aren’t constantly berating yourself for being sad. — John Green (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

We as women are trained to see ourselves as cheap imitations of fashion photographs, rather than seeing fashion photographs as cheap imitations of women. — Naomi Wolf, The Beauty Myth (via spoookywinchesters)

When you step outside the hyped streets of America’s elite metros—cities like New York, Chicago, Los Angeles—you find a whole slew of places where, miraculously, people still live. A great number of people too, as it turns out. In fact, only some 35 million total people live in America’s 25 largest cities. That leaves almost 89% of us to fend for ourselves in the wilderness of mid-sized metros, suburban edge cities, and beyond. — Lucas Lindsey on America’s forgotten cities. (via thisbigcity)

It’s said it takes seven years
to grow completely new skin cells.
To think, this year I will grow
into a body you never will
have touched. — Brett Elizabeth Jenkins, December 21st, 2002 (via voodoo-lady)
