Tumblr can't be shut down. It just can't. This isn't just a social blogging site. This is where people have made friends, found their soul mates, stopped people from killing themselves, raised awareness for certain diseases and disorders, discovered that we are not alone in certain aspects and learned that there are people who have the same interests as us outside of school or anywhere else. We express our real personalities on here. We are not the fake ones. Tumblr is a place for artists of all types, photographers, fashion lovers, multiple fandom supporters, and so much more. We are Tumblr. We are all connected in some way. We are one. We're not just some social blogging site.
“But the thing is, it’s hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely, because almost everyone has that smallest bit of faith and hope that one day they would open their eyes and it would all come true. At the end of the day, faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don’t really expect it. It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale is slightly different than your dream. The castle, well it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important that it’s happily ever after — just that it’s happy right now. See, once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you. And once in awhile, people may even take your breath away.”—
“It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.”—Nicholas Sparks
just so you know, I’m losing interest and for the first time, I’m not blaming myself. let me be honest with you; if you hadn’t said or done what you did, things would be very different for you right now. you wouldn’t be coming home to an empty place, you wouldn’t be sleeping in a cold lonely bed, and you wouldn’t be wondering what if.. that is your loss, not mine.
“The capacity to be alone is the capacity to love. It may look paradoxical to you, but it is not. It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of the other person - without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without reducing the other to a thing, and without becoming addicted to the other. They allow the other absolute freedom, because they know that if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now. Their happiness cannot be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other.”—
when i was first growing up (before the age of 5), i would always listen to the backstreet boys w/o even realizing it. i didn’t know who they were. the songs were just really catchy. i just clicked on a bunch of these songs and realized that i was obsessed with these songs back then. omg, i want the ‘9Os back. not this shit music about sex, drugs, and alcohol. i would get rid of justin bieber and all this disney crap for the ‘9Os stuff to come back.
This isn’t for anyone in particular. Just whoever might be reading this. If you don’t feel loved today, or if you’ve been having a rough time lately and you’re ready to give up, or if your spirits are down, just know that there is someone out there who is thinking about you and wants you to be…
