When you are used to the kind of life—of never getting anything you want—you stop knowing what it is you want.
Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle (via killheji)
Start ignoring people who threaten your joy.
Literally, ignore them.
Don’t invite any parts of them into your space.
Don’t ever put your happiness in someone else’s hands. They’ll drop it. They’ll drop it everytime.
One For Sorrow, C.Barzak (via bl-ossomed)
