There is this odd trend
of taken women
saying they are too much,
and how the men they love
are amazing for dealing with them.

Love should not be a responsibility.
You should not have to deal with me.
Just because a woman is wild
and free
does not mean she is difficult.
He is not a martyr for loving me
through the good
and not so good.

Some mornings I will wake up swinging,
you do not get a gold star
for still loving me.

Some mornings I will wake up like a lamb,
you do not get a gold star
for loving me.

I am not a hurricane of a girl,
you always have the chance to leave.

currently drinking peppermint tea, doing a base coat on my nails trying to figure out if i want a color, listening to the full album of transatlanticism, and not doing anything i’m supposed to do. 

1. Your skin may never be perfect, and that’s okay.

2. Life is too short not to have the underwear, the coffee, and the haircut you want.

3. Everyone (including your family, your coworkers, and your best friend) will talk about you behind your back, and you’ll talk about them too. It doesn’t mean you don’t love each other.

4. It’s okay to spend money on things that make you happy.

5. Sometimes without fault or reason, relationships deteriorate. It will happen when you’re six, it will happen when you’re sixty. That’s life.

Five things I am trying very hard to accept  (via thenocturnals)

apparently i weigh more than kim kardashian post baby (her butt and boobs included ohmygod)

and i’m shorter than her



The amount of calories and carbs I’ve consumed tonight is tragic and embarrassing. 

Women are considered fragile but I’ve never seen anything as easily wounded as a man’s ego.
