Before you speak, ask yourself, is it kind, is it necessary, is it true, does it improve on the silence?
So what? You failed your finals. You gained some weight. So what? You’re single again. You lost your job. So what? What now? You live. You try again. That’s what.
I wanted to be where nobody I knew could ever come.
And I learned ‘You deserve better’
was sometimes no more
than a synonym for ‘I don’t want to hurt you,
and I want you to be happy,
but I don’t love you anymore.
― Beau Taplin, You Deserve Better (via larmoyante)
