I dislike the phrase ‘Internet friends,’ because it implies that people you know online aren’t really your friends, that somehow the friendship is less real or meaningful to you because it happens through Skype or text messages. The measure of a friendship is not its physicality but its significance. Good friendships, online or off, urge us toward empathy; they give us comfort and also pull us out of the prisons of our selves
John Green - (from the introduction of “This Star Won’t Go Out” by Esther Earl)
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. I need to remember this more often. (via winterkristall)
