"Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy."
"Be strong, but not rude. Be kind, but not weak. Be humble, but not timid. Be proud, but not arrogant."
the reason why so many people prefer older men isnt because we have some sort of kink but because we know young teenage boys are a complete fucking disaster that can only be salvaged by the sands of time
Joan Smalls in “Pretty Woman” for Vogue España September 2014, ph. by Miguel Reveriego.
"I’m a paradox. I want to be happy, but I think of things that make me sad. I’m lazy, yet I’m ambitious. I don’t like myself, but I also love who I am. I say I don’t care, but I really do. I crave attention, but reject it when it comes my way. I’m a conflicted contradiction. If I can’t figure myself out, there’s no way anyone else has."
