My therapist:  Look at nature. Look at flowers. We never walk into our garden and say "Oh wouldn't that flower be so much more pretty if it were taller? Or red instead of pink?" No, we don't. Because nature was created perfect just as it is. And so are we. We are part of nature, we are how we're meant to be, we are perfect just as we are.
"Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love."
-Rainer Maria RilkeLetters to a Young Poet (via feellng)

“Three years later, a new girl sits cross-legged on your bed. 
She tastes like a different flavor of coffee than you are used to. 
She opens up a book that you had laying around, and a folded picture of us falls out of chapter three. 
Now there are two unfinished stories resting in her lap. 
Inevitably, she asks, and you tell her.
You say: I dated her a while back. 
You don’t say: Sometimes, when I’m holding you, I imagine the smell of her vanilla perfume.
You say: She was older than me. 
You don’t say: The twenty-two summers in her bones warmed the twenty-one winters my skin had weathered.
You say: It’s nothing now.
You don’t say: But it was everything then. ”

"She’s the kind of girl a guy meets when he’s too young, and he fucks up because there’s too much living to do. But later he realizes she’s perfect."
