“A long time ago I abandoned someone I shouldn’t have, someone I loved more than anything else. I was afraid someday I’d lose this person. So I had to let go myself. If he was going to be stolen away from me, or I was going to lose him by accident, I decided it was better to discard him myself. Of course I felt anger that didn’t fade, that was a part of it. But the whole thing was a huge mistake. It was someone I should never have abandoned.”—Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore (via askjdhlfsjkhd)
how terrifying would it be to have that one anon that wants to touch your butt just come up to you in public, grab a hand full of your ass, whisper your URL in your ear and walk away like nothing happened
You know that feeling that brews in the bottom of your stomach that tells you something is wrong?
Trust it. Live it. Learn to love it. It helps you. If you’re smart enough to use it to escape a bad situation before it hits, more power to you. Listen to this feeling, do not ignore it. It will leave you lonely, and battered, and bruised for a little while without apologizing. It will leave you feeling the worst that you have felt in a long, long time.
This is instinct. This is living. Don’t overlook it, this will lead to disastrous consequence.
It will teach you when, where, who, and how to trust. It will teach you that naivety is dangerous. You must remain on your toes. You must know how to determine when to walk away.
It’ll hurt. Oh yes, it will.
And when you’re alone in the middle of the night and you feel the slow, steady ache of disappointment and anger, let yourself feel it. It’ll quiet down after time passes.
This feeling will want to save you at the end of the day. Let it.
“Move as a total being, and accept things. Just for twenty-four hours, try it - total acceptance, whatsoever happens. Someone insults you, accept it; don’t react, and see what happens. Suddenly you will feel an energy flowing in you that you have not felt before.”—Osho (via psych-facts)
