There is always an emotional element to anything that you make.
Oscar de la Renta
Rest in peace, you brilliant and beautiful man.(via howveryheather)
I am with child. Our child, at last. [x]
You cannot selectively numb emotion. You can’t say, ‘Here’s the bad stuff. Here’s vulnerability. Here’s grief. Here’s shame. Here’s fear. Here’s disappointment. I don’t want to feel these.’ You can’t numb those hard feelings without numbing the other affects and emotions … when we numb those, we numb joy, we numb gratitude, we numb happiness.
She didn’t sob or wail. Her grief was horribly discreet but as persistent and almost as silent as bleeding from an unstitched wound.
I can’t live here
In my body, I mean
I can’t live in my body all the time it feels too much
So if I ever feel far away know I am not gone
I am just underneath my grief
Adjusting the dial on my radio face so I can take this life with all of its love and all of its loss.
I know now that we never get over great losses; we absorb them, and they carve us into different, often kinder, creatures. …We tell the story to get them back, to capture the traces of footfalls through the snow.
Gail Caldwell, Let’s Take the Long Way Home: A Memoir of Friendship(via wordsnquotes)
Don’t listen to those people who suggest you should be “over it” by now. The people who squawk the loudest about such things have almost never had to get over anything. Or at least not anything that was genuinely, mind-fuckingly, soul-crushingly life altering. Some of those people believe they’re being helpful by minimizing your pain. Others are scared of the intensity of your hurt and so they use their words to push your grief away. Many of those people love you and are worthy of your love, but they are not the people who will be helpful to you when it comes to healing the pain.
There are some things I will never talk about unless I am asked. The pain, or perhaps the memory itself, is too fragile and will never be strong enough to be vocalized. You may see my suffering, but you will not hear of it beyond what I’m willing to show.
No, you will listen. For once, you’re going to hear something that doesn’t fit into your world. I look at you, and you’re like…like light made into flesh. And you don’t even know it. You have no clue how beautiful you are or how brightly you shine.
I hate it when men make unsolicited comments about a woman’s body. Like “she’s got a nice shape but she needs to tighten up her stomach”
How about you tighten up your lips and never speak again you ignorant shit.
Wow maybe you need to accept constructive criticism jesus christ.
Men telling me (or any other woman) what I need to do for them to find me sexually attractive is not constructive criticism.
Jennifer Lawrence was hungry on the Red Carpet, so Jeannie gave her some Pop Rocks to hold her over until pizza time.
You can see the exact moment where her polite ‘Thank you’ switched into the pure childlike excitement of ‘HOLY SHIT POP ROCKS YEAH’
Okay but look at the reporters face and see how excited she is also.
The worst pain … isn’t the pain you feel at the time, it’s the pain you feel later on when there’s nothing you can do about it, They say that time heals all wounds, But we never live long enough to test that theory …
