"you say you’re lookin’ for someone to pick you up each time you fall. to gather flowers constantly and to come each time you call, and will love you for your life, and nothin’ more… but it ain’t me, babe."
Life tasted sweet when I was the bad twin

“One look from you and my spine reincarnates as a kite string.
Mindy Nettifee (via herplaygroundspills)

So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.
Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.” The Staying Philosophy (Everyday Isa)
