In the end, our lives belong to us, and I can not afford to dwell on other people’s wishes and longings for what I do with mine. At the end of the day, I am the one that needs to happy with my choices; we should not let our souls be bound to other people’s desires.M.M. (via thedapperproject)

When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.Steve Jobs (via thatkindofwoman)

Interacting with other people does not come naturally to me; it is a strain and requires effort. And since it does not come naturally to me I feel like I am not really myself when I make that effort. I feel fairly comfortable with my family, but even with them I sometimes feel the strain of not being alone.Peter Cameron (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
