Black girls with natural hair get made fun of and black girls with fake hair get made fun of and black girls with no hair get made fun of so like what are black girls supposed to do but not give a fuck about you

The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.
Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience (via hqlines)


If he doesn’t love you
the way you need to be loved,
for god’s sake leave.
Life is too short to keep breaking
your back for someone who doesn’t have a spine of their own.
There is strength in love,
so be brave and walk away.
If someone truly deserves you,
they will learn that love
doesn’t always mean letting go,
sometimes it’s in finding the strength
to grab a hold of you again
so you never find another
reason to leave.

even when we feeling like nothing, we are something… we are somebody. you never know who will need your smile, your kind words or your thoughtful gesture. that may not sound like a lot but we have the ability to be life changing. so, before you think you’re purposeless, remember that you to have a reason for being here…no matter how big or small. -Alex Elle
You matter too… (via alexandraelle)
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.
