♥ ♥ ♥

So often we try to make other people feel better by minimizing their pain, by telling them that it will get better (which it will) or that there are worse things in the world (which there are). But that’s not what I actually needed. What I actually needed was for someone to tell me that it hurt because it mattered. I have found this very useful to think about over the years, and I find that it is a lot easier and more bearable to be sad when you aren’t constantly berating yourself for being sad.  - John Green


  1. I think that this quote speaks to me today. So thank you for posting it! (:

    Love you <3 xo

  2. Those words really hit home with me today - it's true that we are so often working to put the tough times behind us that we forget they are all part of the experience of life.
