"Note to self:
You’ll always be treading on tumultuous grounds if you habitually allow your mood to be affected by unpredictable events or people. Sometimes, you just have to find it in you to let go of all the things that didn’t go according to plan, and instead be joyful for all the things that did; and to remain thankful for the blessings you’ve thus far received, and with a lighthearted demeanor be open to receive all the goodness that is yet to come."

"Peace requires us to surrender our illusions of control. We can love and care for others but we cannot possess our children, lovers, family, or friends. We can assist them, pray for them, and wish them well, yet in the end their happiness and suffering depend on their thoughts and actions, not on our wishes."

Jack Kornfield (via lazyyogi)

Anonymous said: I wish I could do something or be someone to make him realise that I still need his affection. All I want to hear is him call me by the name only he calls me, Rupi it's killing me. I've invested 4 years in him & he wont even give me 4 minutes.

Ma, don’t be blinded by the mere idea of the happiness he could bring you, when reality is, he’s only bringing you pain.  

you must not have to make him want you.  he must want you himself.  in whatever state you are in.  that is the only way he could deserve you.  if you had to become something in order to get his attention, then he’d be paying you the attention for all the wrong reasons.   

i understand the time you have invested.  i understand you don’t want it to be a waste but that doesn’t mean you must go on investing even more time into something this toxic.  you can’t keep giving to someone who doesn’t give to you, what you are giving/have given to them.  

heartache is a universal experience.  you are not alone.  yes, it simply sucks. but life is full of these painful moments, which is what makes the great ones so important.  

set him free.  let him go if he wants to go.  you’ve loved him far longer than needed.  it’s time to care for and heal yourself.  

love will come.  and when love comes, love will hold you.  love will call your name and you will melt.  love never wants to bring you pain.  love plays no games or tricks.  because it is that simple.

"Music has always been a matter of Energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel. I have always needed Fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio."

"When the time comes for you to make a change, to grow, to do your life in a different way, the universe will make you so uncomfortable, so unhappy, you will eventually have no choice. If you insist on staying in a place you no longer belong in, if you do not grow the courage to do what is necessary to propel yourself forward, you will suffer the consequences, whatever they may be."
