I am not what happened to me, I am who I choose to become.
― C.G. Jung (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.

It is awful to want to go away and to want to go nowhere.
― Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath. (via wordsnquotes)

To the bones and the bed of my soul.”

Never liked the second Tallest Man On Earth record but the first is one of my absolute favourites. This is a maybe-superior version of the best song on it. Yeah.
