Embrace who you are and be comfortable with yourself - be a person worthy of your own respects - that’s where true love comes from. It doesn’t come from wearing your fucking khakis and looking for other peoples approval.
When you don’t look for approval, you have all the approval you want.
This is the first time i’ve felt something this deep for a quote. Most quotes you glaze over, give yourself a thought or two about, and skip on to the next one, easily forgetting that their is more meaning to it. More emotion than can be gleaned in the first couple seconds. Kind of a waste, if you think about it. But i’m rebloggin this one. Because it’s beautiful and it’s what everyone hopes never happens to them, and what I’ve been telling my friends is a possibility for me. That’s what terrifies me; that i’m going to lose the one thing I’ve been looking for, hoping for, in that one instant because I failed to look right next to me. Nightmares wouldn’t describe to you the kind of terror I feel. As though my skin wept tears of blood. But to point out the title- it is Masks, but for me, I don’t believe it will be my “fakeness” (it’s cuse i’m so REAL…hahaha) that will be the cause of me losing something; nah, it will be this terror I have of letting someone in, other than friends. Because lovers are a whole another playing field. Not going THERE anytime soon, thankfully. Aight, I’m off to bed. Dreaming of ninja’s again, I hope.
"In the passed few months I’ve really thought about the idea of honesty; I’ve realized the better you get to know someone over time the better you can tell when they’re lying and As Mark Twain said, “Honesty is not having to remember what you’ve said.” When I lied to others, all it really achieved is the justification of other people lying to me. If your like me then you’ve probably lied to a girl before, and even though it helped you in the moment - you only blur the real issue because what your saying is that even in your own opinion, what you are doing is unacceptable - and how can you expect some one else to accept something that you yourself won’t stand up for and don’t believe in enough to be honest about? - It’s weak, that’s all it really isand when a foundation is built upon a weak premise it crumbles.Don’t do that. Put your heart on the line even if it hurts, because that’s where integrity comes from." - Nicholos Brajkovic
