"No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater…The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that’s the key. It’s like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot." -

I have found this to be very true. :)

Sometimes the past seems so inescapable. I hate that its there whenever someone wants it. and I hate that my brain allows me to even think of it knowing how it makes me feel. I’m really happy in the present. Everything is really good. I like myself now more than I’ve ever liked myself. I like the way things are and how everything has played out so far. Im not sure why humans like to torture themselves with things and people who don’t matter anymore. I’m not sure why living in the present is so difficult.

I don’t know. I’m in a mood. I just wish certain things would just go away. I wish we didn’t have the technology to find things we know are gonna upset us. I wish everything wasn’t so attainable. I just wish I could remember the things that don’t matter and the the things that do. Because if I could do that, I’d never be unhappy.

I love my boyfriend.

"I love you, but I’m mad at you is one of the most freeing, important things you can say in a stable relationship. Does that make sense? To know that you have the ability and the right to be mad at someone and know that it doesn’t mean things are over, that it doesn’t mean things are irreparable. That it just means I’m mad, but God, I love you. I love you. Now leave me alone." - To be good, to save nothing  (via brighteryellow)
