I have lost and loved and won and cried myself to the person I am today.

To create something new, you must first destroy it. 

(via noona-x)

Choices don’t turn into obligations just because people’s feelings are involved. Don’t let your loyalty become slavery. Sometimes, we need to hurt the people we care about because they can only see as far as their reality limits them; from seeing things from your perspective. You are hurting yourself and them if you limit yourself for their happiness. If someone doesn’t know how to get something, they will never get it. But, you can get it and then give it to them. that is loyalty. that is your obligation.

There is only one way to learn. It’s through action. Everything you need to know you have learned through your journey.
