i observe men in silence, how they leave plates on dining room tables, how they slam doors, how they take up whole couch with legs sprawled and lounging arms, how they do not filter speech, too confident, too loud. voices always violent, everything a war.
— Chuck Palahniuk (via fcknsrs)
Nothing is more attractive than a person who’s got their act together, who has success written on the dotted line, whose depth holds immense value, whose respect is both earned and given, who knows their worth and can recognize the worth of people around them. Nothing is more attractive than someone who stands, and supports you, as your equal. Or maybe I’m the only one that sees the attractiveness in that?
Don’t settle for less than what you deserve. Cultivate your value, love your worth, never let disrespect diminish your profit."

at eight years old.
Shakespeare was married at eighteen
and completed his first play at twenty six.
My grandmother carried life in her hips at fifteen
and had three declarations of young love
by the time she was nineteen.
My grandfather had barely gotten over puberty
when he took his first trip-
a tromp over unknown countryside with
a gun on his back and a
stained uniform as his only clothes.
I am twenty and all I feel like doing
is falling asleep until the
another revolution of the sun."
