I love a man who values family.
Have you been praying and believing for something that’s taking longer than you thought? Many times, people can miss God’s best simply because they give up before they see their answer come. Don’t let that be you! Be encouraged today, your answer is closer than you think. If it seems like things are getting more difficult, remember, when the intensity heats up, that means you are closer to your victory. It always seems darkest just before the dawn appears.
Friend, remember, you serve a faithful God. Know that He is working behind the scenes on your behalf. Don’t cast away your confidence today because your reward is coming. And just like a new mother forgets about her labor pain when she is finally holding her newborn, you’ll forget about your struggle when you are holding your promise.
While you are waiting, keep an attitude of faith and expectancy. Wake up every morning and declare, “I’ve come too far to give up now. My due season is coming. I will reap my harvest.” Stay in faith and be on the lookout because He has promised you victory, and it’s closer than you think!
it’s not enough to just have a pretty face, sharpen your mind. explore the energy. deprive your ego and find substance so you can live there
Compiled comments on a berlin-artparasites post about chasing/going after the one you want. 🙂
“There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn’t need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn’t any less beautiful, I promise.”

“I have done this way more times than I care to think. Too many times I’ve forgotten my pride, too many times I’ve made myself vulnerable. From now on I’m not chasing no god damn ‘planes’ and most important I’m not making any more drunken phone calls at 4am. Too many times people have ‘slipped through the net’ and maybe too many people I’ve equally led on to care for me yet they were just a convenience. What I’m saying don’t carelessly throw all your vulnerability away to be used against you. People are fickle.” —Harriet Allen
“This is so beautiful to read. But sometimes, there are people that will never have that heart to appreciate you. That’s the saddest part. No matter how much you tried. The only thing you know is that if you keep chasing, you could be the one for them because they might end up choosing you. But you’re never the one. You’ll end up empty. You’ll end up hurt. Because you gave your everything. That’s the saddest part about loving someone who can’t return the love you gave the whole time.

“Love isn’t escapism, it’s not a drug, it’s not adrenaline, love is not this. God knows I’ve mistaken it for this a million times.” —Animo Veronica
“No. Just a Plain big No. Go after her? You Love her? Him? Whoever the fuck that person is? Chasing over someone who has already let go, wether they give you signs or not a single shit of a fuck is not …Happiness. Catching a plane and Running to someone isn’t Worth what they thought it’d be. Making drunken phone calls at 4am? Bullshit. Sometimes Doing the things that are actually worth it?.. Is finding a way to Let go. Finding a way to Let it slip away from you, Because sometimes The one thing holding us back is Holding onto something that already went away. Sometimes Acceptance is Worth a thousand Regrets you’d make if You Chase over something you know you could never have again or at all. Sometimes doing what’s worth it means Trying to see yourself without the things you’re afraid to live without. Then you’ll finally realize what’s worth your time. you’ll realize what’s worth a Billion bullshit,.. You’ll finally see that Accepting reality is way more worth it,.. And I promise you, You’ll fall in love with The god damn feeling. the feeling of setting yourself free than watching yourself break into pieces, Holding onto something that never wanted to take a grip. Setting yourself Free? The Best thing that’s worth anything at all. Really.” —Red Nepz
