sometimes all you can do is turn up the music really loud and drown out everything around you.

sometimes you can't help but overthink and let yourself be overcome with insecurity.

all you can give out is love, overflowing with kind words for friends because you've been sad and you don't want anyone else to be sad.

nothing matters more, nobody is more important, than yourself.

once in a while, you'll always miss the way things used to be. 

missing people is a part of life... but it doesn't need to take over. 

magical moments can't be recaptured, sparks won't come back. remember fondly but don't always wish you're still living in the past.

people come & go. move on and go find yourself, it's more important.

give yourself time to recharge and just be by yourself.

don't bring back old thoughts that hurt for no real reason.

sometimes things that shouldn't hurt just end up hurting, it's normal.

sometimes the people who truly make you happy are the ones who are hidden. who you chat every couple days but never really notice how much they mean to you. sometimes your love will be a little misdirected but that's okay because you live and learn right? 

sometimes your heart will trick you into believing things that aren't true...

but eventually you're finally happy. not the can't-contain-your-excitement kind of happiness that can vanish at the slightest development. not the kind when you can't stop grinning and you can barely stand still. no, the kind where you're satisfied and content.

nobody is forever, but happiness can be.
