when someone asks what its like to be young these days



other country: wow we solved drug crimes by doing this and the problem is practically completely resolved
america: there is just no stopping the war on drugs........
other country: we have the most successful schools because we implement these rules to encourage real learning
america: no hope....... kids just cant cut it anymore........
other country: gun related crime is all but non existent thanks to our restrictions
america: wow..... if only there was some way to stop these shootings before they happened..............
other country: nothing bad has happened as a result of our equal marriage/bathroom laws for lgbt
america: if only there was a way.............................

You realize you are not alone, right? No one in their twenties has life figured out. It’s okay to be a mess. You’re living.

Things my therapist told me today that almost made me burst out into tears. (via scottsdisicks)

The USA averages 1.37 school shootings per week since the school massacre last year and that’s why guns should not be available to the general public

His heart wasn’t as beautiful as his smile.
We emotionally manipulated one another
Until we thought it was love.
Forgive me, I was lonely so I chose you.
I am a lover without a lover
I’m lovely and lonely
I belong deeply to myself
