"Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. Be honest and transparent anyway."

Mother Teresa (via sawyer762)

"Every one suspects himself of at least one of the cardinal virtues, and this is mine: I am one of the few honest people that I have ever known."

F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Great Gatsby (via yourenergeia)

Red

Sometimes I get sick and tired of people always thinking they know what’s best. Thinking they have a right to tell me how to live my life. I cannot stand it anymore. Everything is always wrong. People are never happy. Do this. Do that. Always need to be better. Nothing is good enough. I don’t care. I just want to be left alone. You can’t trust anybody anyways so nobody is the best company you can have. I can’t wait to say goodbye to this and sail away to another dimension. Life is too short to be surrounded by these voices. Always talking. Always angry. Never happy. I want to yell for help but nobody will come. It’s me against the world. And I’m tired of fighting. I’m tired of getting up just to get thrown back down. This is bullshit. All of it. Nothing is worth it. Nobody is worth it. Take me away. Take me to a different place. A place where it’s just me. Just me. Me and the universe. Me and the moon. The stars are my hope. The only hope. Take me away from the red. The sea of red. The anger. The betrayal. The frustration. All of it. I want to feel nothing. Close my eyes and numb the world. Everything is dead.

Silence.


And now I can breathe.
