"The next time you feel you have to defend something about yourself, ask yourself, why am I feeling I must defend this? Be willing to let your heart and wisdom smile upon people, sending them your love and acceptance. Do not feel you must say anything. Be who you are. Do not try to be perfect all the time."
Orin (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
"For sometimes you can’t help but crave some ruin in what you love."
