I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.

What you ask for from the world is exactly what you’re getting back. You know, I’ve lived by the Law of Attraction for years and I can tell you from experience that it is real and it works whether you recognize it or not. Our ability to attract goodness is most powerful when we do recognize it and cultivate that which we hope to attract within ourselves first. In other words, now that we’ve done the work to understand and become who we are at our very core, we begin to see and attract others who are made up of that same loving energy. Want more fulfilling relationships? First, you must be full yourself. You can’t attract what you don’t have. Whole attracts whole. Love attracts love.

Can I be quiet with you?
Can we be silently in love?
Love me softly
in the grey dawn.
Love me softly.
Be in love.
When I love you, dear,
it will not be softly,
it will not be silent.
I will not, you will not
We will be a storm
and we will slap the sky.
The majority of men in every generation, even those who, as it is described, devote themselves to thinking, live and die under the impression that life is simply a matter of understanding more and more, and that if it were granted to them to live longer, that life would continue to be one long continuous growth in understanding. How many of them ever experience the maturity of discovering that there comes a critical moment where everything is reversed, after which the point becomes to understand more and more that there is something which cannot be understood.
— Søren Kierkegaard (via thatkindofwoman)
