You never get to the point where you think “I am the adult”, but you do get to the point where you think “I’ve dealt with this before.” The older you get, the higher and higher the percentage is of things you’ve already been through. Have you ever changed a tire? Had a flat tire? Someday, you might, and the next time it happens, you’ll know what to do, since you’ve already done it. My dad. I’m 24, and asked if you ever shake the feeling of not being an adult, and this was his response. Probably the most comforting thing he could have said.  (via zucchinis)

Stop putting your happiness in other peoples’ hands. They will drop it, no matter what words come out of their mouth. People leave and come back and sometimes leave again. You can’t rely on someone to make you feel beautiful. You need to learn how to love with yourself before you fall in love with another person. If you don’t love yourself, they’ll constantly remind you how much they love and want you, but oh god, that won’t change a thing about how you feel about yourself. So, stop hating your thighs because they’re not a size zero. You have the ability to change how you act and think at any giving moment. If you love yourself, everything will be easier. I think that loving yourself is the strongest thing to do. There’s so much more to you than the things you’re seeing. Try. Just try to love yourself, even if it’s just for a day. A letter to everyone who suffers from daily self hatred (via neckdick)
