a heart's a heavy burden

Rachael, 21. Newcastle Australia, Fine arts student engaged to a complete sweetheart.

  1. You are stronger than you realise.
  2. You are crueller than you realise.
  3. The smallest words will break your heart.
  4. You will change. You’re not the same person you were three years ago. You’re not even the same person you were three minutes ago and that’s okay. Especially if you don’t like the person you were three minutes ago.
  5. People come and go. Some are cigarette breaks, others are forest fires.
  6. You won’t like your name until you hear someone say it in their sleep.
  7. You’ll forget your email password but ten years from now you’ll still remember the number of steps up to his flat.
  8. You don’t have to open the curtains if you don’t want to.
  9. Never stop yourself texting someone. If you love them at 4 a.m., tell them. If you still love them at 9.30 a.m., tell them again.
  10. Make sure you have a safe place. Whether it’s the kitchen floor or the Travel section of a bookshop, just make sure you have a safe place.
  11. You will be scared of all kinds of things, of spiders and clowns and eating alone, but your biggest fear will be that people will see you the way you see yourself.
  12. Sometimes, looking at someone will be like looking into the sun. Sometimes someone will look at you like you are the sun. Wait for it.
  13. You will learn how to sleep alone, how to avoid the cold corners but still fill a bed.
  14. Always be friends with the broken people. They know how to survive.
  15. You can love someone and hate them, all at once. You can miss them so much you ache but still ignore your phone when they call.
  16. You are good at something, whether it’s making someone laugh or remembering their birthday. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that these things don’t matter.
  17. You will always be hungry for love. Always. Even when someone is asleep next to you you’ll envy the pillow touching their cheek and the sheet hiding their skin.
  18. Loneliness is nothing to do with how many people are around you but how many of them understand you.
  19. People say I love you all the time. Even when they say, ‘Why didn’t you call me back?’ or ‘He’s an asshole.’ Make sure you’re listening.
  20. You will be okay.
  21. You will be okay.

Everyone should come for a walk!

Anonymous asked: She's way too beautiful for me, inside and out. I should get over her. I'm not sure if it's love anyway, it's just an unrequited feeling of love that isn't.. actual love, I feel like I owe her something. I wouldn't be able to explain it if you made me write an essay on it. She saved me from doing something stupid years ago and I never let her know.

Let her know, talk to her about it! There is no harm in talking, maybe it will make you feel better, it’s not easy to get over people but it will make you feel so much better if the feeling isn’t mutual, if she is single ask her out for coffee and get to know hurt, it might turn out that you don’t have that much in common at all
I feel really bad I can’t answer this better, I am not so good at matters of love

Anonymous asked: I'm in love with somebody who doesn't even know I exist

Maybe let them know you exist, try to start talking to them? That way something may happen in the long run or you will know nothing will ever happen and can move on, I’m sorry I can’t be more helpful
