“Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep out alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here.”—Eve Ensler (via felicefawn)
I’m in such a good mood. Had a chat with one of my lecturers about everything and how I’m feeling really unmotivated and I think I just needed to get it off my chest. I’m feeling really positive about things now and I feel I’m hopefully gonna be back at 100% after the Christmas break. I need a break.
“Who taught me to suck in my stomach,
or my cheeks?
Who told me to stand with my legs apart
and my hips thrust back
to create the illusion of a gap
between my thighs?
Who made me believe that the most beautiful part of me
is my negative space?”—Negative Space (via mermaidsongs)
