“We’re the middle children of history, man.
No purpose or place.
We have no great war, no great depression.
Our great war’s a spiritual war…Our great depression is our lives.
We’ve all been raised on television to believe one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars.
But we won’t.
And we’re slowly learning that fact.
And we’re very, very pissed off.”—Tyler Durden (via jcjh)
Don't be so hard on yourself. Yeah you screwed up. You're not perfect, fine. Learn from it. But don't punish yourself. Be kind to you, even when you screw up. You'll bounce back eventually. You'll make up for it.
I think I made the biggest mistake of my life. I immediately regret everything. I’m in such a weird mood. Nothing is going right. I don’t even know who I am anymore. Time heals all wounds. But even time won’t be able to help me now. Unless I can just go back. Why does time always move forward? Why can’t it ever just stay stationary long enough for me to enjoy life and those around me who are dumb enough to associate with me? I am so blessed for the friends I have. Unfortunately, time is not one of them. And the worst part is, it’s my own doing due to my own lack of confidence and insecurities. Even when I find happiness, I always make sure I destroy it. Some people are just meant to live a life of sorrow, regret, and depression. Maybe that’s the environment in which they thrive. I hope I’m one of those people, because my life has been a rather large disappointment so far. By that logic, I ought to do something that will change the world.
When people don’t know West Virginia is a state. Or they know we are, and think the worst of us. Yeah, we’re rednecks, hillbillys, whatever you wanna call us. But guess what? We power 92% of America’s power in the coal mines we slave in for you. We’re one of the only states not in debt. And our people here are actually down-home and friendly.
“ ‘This is love,’ she thought, ‘isn’t it? When you notice someone’s absence and hate that absence more than anything? More, even, than you love his presence?’ ”—Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated (via iwanderandwonder)
“If I’d been someone else in a different world I’d’ve done something different, but I was myself and the world was the world, so I was silent.”—Jonathon Safran Foer (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close)
