Be Courageous.
I'm Emily, I'm 20, from Florida, and you're lovely.

do you ever pretend like you didn’t see something so the other person doesn’t feel embarrassed 

It’s 3.47am and I miss you just like I did last week at 2.15 in the afternoon when I remembered the last time you told me you wanted me and you meant it. It’s 3.47am and I should be sleeping but all I can think about is how you used to smile when I told you you were beautiful and the way you held me tight and said you would never let me go but I guess things change and people move on and now you’re sleeping and I’m lying awake thinking about you.I wish I was sleeping - 3.47am 06/05/14 - curiovsly (via perfect)

Very early on in life,
I learned that we couldn’t fix people.

The first time I heard my mother cry,
I was 7.
And even though I was young,
I swore the sound of her sobs
was also the sound of my heart shattering.
And I remember hugging her,
Because I thought that maybe if I held her tightly enough,
she wouldn’t fall apart.

I learned that I was wrong about that, too.

Fast forward ten years,
And here I am again,
Trying to fix you.
And even though I know that we can’t fix people,
I’m still giving it my best damn shot anyway,
Because the very fact that you are broken,
broke me too.

And I learned that
Sometimes,
When we try to fix people,
We realize just how broken we are.
