I wish somebody had told me that loving people, knowing how to love those people, and those people loving you back were three entirely different things.Della Hicks-Wilson (via flueree)
When he decides he doesn’t love you anymore,
here is what you do: Move on quietly. Love yourself
The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family. That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.
The fact people scoff at this idea if presented nowadays, as though the people that ring up your groceries or hand you your burgers don’t deserve the luxury of a home and a family, is disgusting.
When life descends into the pit
I must become my own candle
willingly burning myself
to light up the darkness around me.
