For years mental health professionals taught people that they could be psychologically healthy without social support, that “unless you love yourself, no one else will love you.”…The truth is, you cannot love yourself unless you have been loved and are loved. The capacity to love cannot be built in isolation

My parents don’t have money to pay me for all the hours I watch their kids but can go buy booze and go see a concert . That makes sense .

I want you. I want your sleepy confused look when you wake up, and the smile that follows. I want to be the warmth that fills the space in your bed. I don’t want to share you.(via bl-ossomed)
A year ago we stayed up till 3 am talking
And today I don’t know how to even say hey
Currently off medication for 2 months. I’ve noticed I’m dependent on it , because if I don’t take it (like I’m not right now) things tend to get worse quicker. I’ll start back up on it on Sunday.
Still seeing my therapist every 2-3 weeks. We rarely talk about what I need to talk about because I’m shy about it. Sometimes we run out of things to talk about and I leave early . (Waste of a $20 copay)
Still in love with someone from 2 years ago.
Starting college in 9 days.
Friends are assholes.
