as long as she knows
Jennifer Lawrence in “Catching Fire”.
“ Never discourage anyone who continually makes progress, no matter how slow. ”
Growing up I always thought true love was red roses, dates on Saturday nights, little block box that held expensive things, and always knowing what to say. I thought true love was a kiss in the rain, deep explanations, and the perfect story. But now that I’m older I’ve realized it’s not like that at all.
See because true love for me is ugly snapchats, and peeing while you’re on the phone. True love is kissing at 6 AM despite the morning breath and singing at the top of your lungs. It’s saying all the wrong things, at all the wrong moments. It’s sarcasm and being honest even when it hurts. It’s late hours of the night when it’s been a long day and it’s no make up and bad hair. It’s tears from laughter, it’s tears from sadness and it’s nothing like any storybook you’ve ever read. It’s never running out of things to talk about, and it’s being comfortable in the silence of things. True love is watching The Titanic though you swore you never would. It’s getting mad over stupid things. It’s “you’re an idiot,” and “you’re a little shit” and knowing you’re so lucky to hear those every day. It’s spilling your feelings at 4 AM when you should be asleep. It’s that song you hear on the radio that always makes you smile. It’s the worst story you could imagine, but thank God it worked out anyways. True love is never losing the magic. True love is not leaving when things get hard.
I like my definition better anyways.”
Anonymous asked: But Bey still doesn't even have that many number 1 singles lol.. Keep claiming she's not a single artist surely someone that slays so much should be able to have as many number 1's as someone who is far better , and original like Rihanna.
She might not have as many as Princess Rih but she DOES have 5 (9 technically if we go by Billboard’s rules) which is more than enough for her. She also has a historic #1 album streak [5 of them. One of them which holds the record for the fastest selling album in iTunes history], record breaking tour[s] & 17 Grammys [and more to come]. Also, She’s #4 on the Forbes List this year [before all of the Fall 2013 slay that is] and she’s the highest paid black actress with a box office revenue of 1 billion. Bey is just fine… as is Rihanna… but thanks for being concerned. I hope I successfully broadened your intelligence beyond #1 singles. Have a great day and be sure to check back to see what Bey slays next!
So my sister and I are Bey stans and have no time for other basic bitches in the industry. We’re both in the car and Ashanti comes on for an interview on the radio. She starts talking about a new album and I say something like “BASICCCC, does Ashanti even exist any more??” My sister says “What’s ashanti, a spider?”
This bitch is so irrelevant that my sister mistook her for a FUCKING ANANSI SPIDER.
I want you to promise me something. And I don’t care if you don’t know me, like me, or like making promises in general. Just do it.
Promise me that you will keep on living, even when everything is futile.
I want you to forgive yourself for the things that you’ve done. I want you to forgive yourself for the things that you should have done. Forgive yourself, even when you don’t think you deserve it.
I want you to love yourself for all that you are and all that you are not. I want you to love yourself, even if no one else does. You do not need the validation from another human being in order to know your worth. You do not need others to love you in order to show you that you are worth loving. The love that you develop for yourself is more than enough. Love yourself enough to stand on your own, without depending on the love of anyone else.
So stop injecting drugs to avoid reality. Stop with the pills and the cutting. Stop with the thoughts on jumping off a building and hanging yourself. Stop hating yourself and regretting about the past. Stop with the ‘what ifs’ and the ‘should have beens.’ And don’t you dare pull that trigger. Stop.
Stop and love yourself. It is the least you can do for you.”
