The things this boy will do in order to kiss her. He physically lifts his bum off of the bench in order to keep their lips connected. The poor boy had been waiting several weeks in order to kiss her and he definitely didn’t want to stop once he finally got to. It’s adorable that you can see him wanting to do it almost desperately. He also has no problems possibly pulling a back or shoulder muscle in order to kiss her when they were at his house. Every kiss they shared was out of want. They were kisses that meant something. Either kisses that were meant to shut her up, but not because he didn’t want to listen to her, but because they were moments of reassurance. Kisses that said no I don’t think you’re weird and kisses that said, I want you, no one else.
and there’s still going to be someone who hates peaches."

Jiddu Krishnamurti (via thebigelectron)
Our conditioning is the sum total of every influence we have encountered since birth. And these influences direct us. They form our dreams, hopes, and aspirations. They tell us who to love, and who we find attractive. They inform us of what is real and what isn’t. And as long as we are conditioned we will never make our own decisions or reach our full potentials. The key is to look back, reassess your values so when you act or think you know you’re doing it not because you were raised to do it but because it makes sense.
Real freedom is not something to be acquired, it is the outcome of intelligence. You cannot go out and buy freedom in the market. You cannot get it by reading a book, or by listening to someone talk. Freedom comes with intelligence.
But what is intelligence? Can there be intelligence when there is fear, or when the mind is conditioned? When your mind is prejudiced, or when you think you are a marvelous human being, or when you are very ambitious and want to climb the ladder of success, worldly or spiritual, can there be intelligence? When you are concerned about yourself, when you follow or worship somebody, can there be intelligence? Surely, intelligence comes when you understand and break away from all this stupidity. So you have to set about it; and the first thing is to be aware that your mind is not free. You have to observe how your mind is bound by all these things, and then there is the beginning of intelligence, which brings freedom. You have to find the answer for yourself. What is the use of someone else being free when you are not, or of someone else having food when you are hungry?
To be creative, which is to have real initiative, there must be freedom; and for freedom there must be intelligence. So you have to inquire and find out what is preventing intelligence. You have to investigate life, you have to question social values, everything, and not accept anything because you are frightened."
J. Krishnamurti (via shyhermit)
Freedom has a price. For losing fear and insecurity you must let go of things you may have found comfort in. It can be tough. You’re daring to change. And it’s easy to go back to those things we are accustomed to. But if you stick with it, question your conditioning, and follow through you’d find that you had an immense power within you all along; an untapped reservoir of love, and a lifetime of happiness.
— Dig Yourself (via howitzerliterarysociety)
The truth is that we need relationships, but we don’t need every relationship. Surround yourself with positive people who bring you up, rather than drag you down. You don’t have to sacrifice your sanity because you don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings. You don’t have to be controlled by your own kindness. You can be a good person without bending to the will of those who damage you with their own selfishness.
You deserve to be happy."
My new favorite fat shaming trend is people shitting on pictures of fat women partaking in physical activity. For a group...
- “Let go of relationships that do not serve you. That means negative people, dishonest people, people who don’t respect you, people who are overly...”
- “It’s ok you know,
to be carried now and then,
strength too needs a rest.”
