The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes to everyone else’s highlight reel.
— Steve Furtick (via rainydaysandblankets)
We have all hurt someone tremendously, whether by intent or accident. we have all loved someone tremendously, whether by intent or accident. It is an intrinsic human trait, and a deep responsibility, I think, to be an organ and a blade. But, learning to forgive ourselves and others because we have not chosen wisely is what makes us most human. We make horrible mistakes. It’s how we learn. We breathe love. It’s how we learn. And it is inevitable.

I drink to forget
I drink to stop what’s inside
I drink to express
I drink because it hurt
It hurt no matter how much I try not to care. . I’ll always end up to be the broken one. .
I try not to care because I know I will always put all the people I love first. .
You can accept or reject the way you are treated by other people, but until you heal the wounds of your past, you will continue to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex, but eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories, and make peace with them.
