All you had to look at,
Was his blue eyes with a brown rim,
A dead and gone cat,
Ex’s with a grin.
But she was the only one that saw,
His eyes were the windows to his soul,
He had been crushed in a vicious war,
Yet he still kept his ultimate goal.
Everyone thought of him as plain,
But she saw his divine beauty,
And the way he moved in pain,
Even though he had his own duty.
All she wanted to do was heal him,
Make him feel loved,
Be in an ocean where they’d both swim,
And set him free, free like a dove.
Beautiful things don’t ask for attention.James Thurber (via blazeberg)
We live in an age where we feel guilt whenever we have to cut someone off but the reality is that some relationships do need to die, some people do need to be unfollowed and defriended. We aren’t meant to be this tethered to the people in our past. The Internet mandates that we don’t burn bridges and keep everyone around like relics but those expectations are unrealistic and unhealthy. Simply put, we don’t need to know what everyone else is up to. We’re allowed to be choosy about who we surround ourselves with online and in real life, even if it might hurt people’s feelings.Ryan O’Connell, You Don’t Have To Be Friends With Everybody (via blazeberg)
