I’m just going to leave this here.

There are a lot of books that I read in high school that I’ve had to read again in college. I generally like them better now that I’m older and able to better appreciate them.

That being said, a lot of people see the ending of A Doll’s House as sad and tragic. Me? I don’t think that Ibsen could have possibly written a better ending.

"So often we try to make other people feel better by minimizing their pain, by telling them that it will get better (which it will) or that there are worse things in the world (which there are). But that’s not what I actually needed. What I actually needed was for someone to tell me that it hurt because it mattered. I have found this very useful to think about over the years, and I find that it is a lot easier and more bearable to be sad when you aren’t constantly berating yourself for being sad." by John Green  (via unlively)

"You should make yourself into what you want to be. You’re only here for a short time. And even if you get reincarnated you’re not going to remember this time now but in vague echoes. You should make yourself into what you want to be even if people around you think it’s impossible or tragedy strikes you. Tragedy striking you is the very reason to do this because life is too much bullshit to let it have it’s way with you all the time. You don’t owe angry people explanations and you don’t have to check first with people to see if what you want is legitimate. Plenty of people fail playing it extra safe and they all say the same thing, “should have done…” You can be one of those people, fine. But if you live out your life and all you have going for it are stellar employee performance reviews, just….god damn man. It’s not even your name on the building." by
