You have a right to take up space. You have a right to say what you do and don’t want. You can take control of your life and carve your own path.

Like the hurricane, you don’t adapt to others; others have to adapt to you.

I’VE NEVER REBLOGGED ANYTHING SO FAST IN MY LIFE

(via deathvlley)

How could I give up something I never really had? I never really had you; you were never “mine”. Even when I thought you might have been, you were always someone else’s. Always had another on your mind. Always chasing after some other girl no matter how many times I stood in front of you with my heart half open waiting for you to notice me and my feelings for you.

I was there for you and waited for you to realize I’ve always been there all along, but you were so caught up in your fantasy and high standards I thought I could reach and fulfill. I was too selfish and acted way too foolishly to think that you thought of me sometimes when it’s always been her. There will always be someone else. I’ve known that for as long as I’ve known you so I should’ve known better.

Time and time again I let you break my heart and I put a band-aid on it and wrote “love” to make me believe it was.

Rather, it was more like intoxication than love.

I was intoxicated by you and your eyes and the way your hands never seemed to keep still, especially when glass bottles and cups of alcohol were involved. I thought the sips between shared drinks meant you cared about me as more than a friend but I was wrong. You care about me only with alcohol on your lips and when you’re handing me another drink.

I had hoped it was my name beneath your sighs but it sounded more like her name mixed with whatever beer you were drinking. I’m not the one you think about when you’re drunk, how could I possibly be yours when you’re sober?

You intoxicated my mind with false hope and messy thoughts and words. Over and over, I thought about and replayed every moment we were together. I thought about the what-ifs and beaten myself over the things I should have said and done differently. I thought about the meaning behind everything you said and did, and that maybe it was because you loved me back. But it wasn’t. It never was. I don’t know the reasons behind your actions and I may never know.

You’re toxic to my brain, my heart, my mouth, my eyes, my hands. And can’t go on like that.

I’m beginning to let go any notion of you and I ever becoming more than friends.

And I’m okay with that now.

So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.

And that’s your power over me. 
I let you. I always let you go because I think it is for the best.
But you always come back.

If you use YouTube, you need to know this.
You’ve heard all these rumblings about Net Neutrality over the past several months. Let’s get real: this is about controlling online video. It is estimated that by 2017, video content will account for 80-90% of all global Internet traffic.
This isn’t just about not being able to binge-watch a series on Netflix. It’s about the future of online video as we know it.
Whether your YouTube channel is home to daily vlogs, short films, or just that one video from when the cinnamon challenge seemed like a good idea, you’re a video creator. Your content and comments help shape this community. Let’s keep it that way.
Net Neutrality means that your YouTube videos reach people at the same speed as clips from last night’s episode of the Tonight Show. It means a level playing field for video creators looking to reach an audience. But new Net Neutrality rules could mess that up.
Here’s the deal: Telecommunications companies already charge us to access the Internet through our homes and our phones. New FCC rules could allow them to also charge content providers (like YouTube, Netflix, and even PBS) for access to our eyeballs. It could create a fast lane for Jimmy Fallon’s clips, and slow lane for your YouTube videos.
It is really important that the FCC understands that online video creators care about Net Neutrality. Even if you’ve only ever uploaded ONE VIDEO, you are a creator and you have a voice.
If you can, please add your channel to our petition. We’ll deliver this to the FCC in September and demonstrate that the online video community cares about this issue. 
Sign the petition, then spread the word.

There is a good side and a bad side to most people, and in accordance with your own character and disposition you will bring out one of them and the other will remain a sealed book to you.
