“We who love music, we love the people who make it, we love the sound of it, and we love what it does to us, how it makes us feel, how it helps us love.”—George Harrison, Musician, November 1987 (via everpink)
“To anyone out there who deals with mental illness during the day and horrific nightmares at night. Moment of silence for every one of you. It is a dark dark place with seemingly no escape, a myriad of tunnels, a maze through hell. Many belittle the small triumphs but know this, your very existence shows immense strength.
And to all of you struggling with depression, anxiety, self harm and any other imbalance: I applaud you for making it through another day. Fighting mental illness is one of the most difficult battles to face and many of you face it alone because no one sees the monsters you see, the monsters that you fight every moment. Every day you decide to live on is an amazing victory. And it’s time you were commended for that.”—(via paperdollrage)
“Scar tissue has no character. It’s not like skin. It doesn’t show age or illness or pallor or tan. It has no pores, no hair, no wrinkles. It’s like a slip cover. It shields and disguises what’s beneath. That’s why we grow it; we have something to hide.”— Susanna Kaysen, Girl, Interrupted (via fiebre)
