What horrifies me most is the idea of being useless: well-educated, brilliantly promising, and fading out into an indifferent middle age.
Why do you put your self esteem in the hands of complete strangers?
Change the trend of your thoughts. Cast out all negative mental habits. Replace them with wholesome, courageous thought habits, and apply them in daily life with unshakable confidence.
― ~Paramahansa Yogananda~ (via kkdas)
We always see our worst selves. Our most vulnerable selves. We need someone else to get close enough to tell us we’re wrong. Someone we trust.
― David Levithan (Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List)
