You can’t say “I don’t do politics”, because silence is a political statement.
- Tariq Ramadan (via uniteforpalestine)
Anger will never disappear so long as thoughts of resentment are cherished in the mind.
- Gautama Buddha (via kushandwizdom)
Every production of an artist should be the expression of an adventure of his soul.
- W. Somerset Maugham (via observando)
Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.
- Rumi (via lazyyogi)
You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you — it’s something inherent. You exist, and therefore, you matter. You’re allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You’re allowed to assert your needs and take up space. You’re allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough. And you’re allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise.
