“For years, mental health professionals taught people that they could be psychologically healthy without social support, that “unless you love yourself, no one else will love you.”… The truth is you cannot love yourself unless you have been loved and are loved. The capacity to love cannot be built in isolation.”—(via madame-mayor)
Oh gosh, just went through several photos of my mom when she was little/a teenager and somehow she morphs into several family members throughout the years. xD When she was really little… like infantile-12, she looks exactly like my cousin Abby. Older teenager she looks like my cousin Casey, but they’ve always looked alike. And Idek but there must have been literally 1 year in her adolescence where she looked like me cause there were only 2 where I was like “wtf that looks like me. o.O” Cause I NEVER see a resemblance when it comes to me and my mom. I look a shit ton like my dad. People tell me I look like her, but I assume they say that cause we’re like the same size and same hair color, both wear glasses… lol But I’ve never seen a picture of her until now where I can see myself in it a lot…
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”—Nelson Mandela, 1918-2013 (via jamescook)
Somehow I had a dream about Coven last night… Where like 10 years had passed and an older, supreme Zoe was in a relationship with Cordelia… who had been mentoring her for years. ……….. I wasn’t exactly complaining when I woke up?
