Calvin: If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently.
Hobbes: How so?
Calvin: Well, when you look into infinity, you realize that there are more important things than what people do all day.
The god that our neighbours believe in is essentially an invisible person. He’s a creator deity, who created the universe to have a relationship with one species of primates — lucky us. And he’s got galaxy upon galaxy to attend to, but he’s especially concerned with what we do, and he’s especially concerned with what we do while naked.

when you first realized that mom can’t fix everything, the world is stupid and life doesn’t make any sense.

I don’t usually reblog stuff to this blog, but this is beautiful, and we all could use the reminder.

I remember a long time ago when I was feeling particularly depressed and was having a lot of trouble finding reasons to keep living, I found this video/documentary. It’s about this particular forest in Japan called Aokigahara (Sea of Trees) where a lot of suicidal people go to end their lives, or end up changing their minds. It’s so common, that there are a ton of signs trying to convince its visitors that life is worth living, and there are annual body searches conducted throughout the forest.
There are many memorials left as well, which shows how much those closer to you do care deeply for you, whether you believe it or not. I think that was the biggest thing for me, that I could be so caught up in myself that I couldn’t stop to think how others might actually care about me and how much pain I could cause them. Not only that, but if I could see that, maybe life would start becoming more meaningful to me. And it did.
Fun work? Is that even possible? What do you think?

Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go. Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else. You have to make your wellbeing a priority. Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful — you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself.
For each person there is a sentence—a series of words—which has the power to destroy them.
It’s a lot easier to be angry at someone than it is to tell them you’re hurt.
Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
