"When people who suffer from metal illness have difficulty having compassion for themselves, or loved ones who don’t understand what the person is going through, the problem is they don’t just suffer from the mental illness. They suffer from all the social ramifications of living with the mental illness—that person’s now kind of afraid to be around me, or people are treating me with kid gloves, or people are just telling me to suck it up and be grateful for what I have. All of that is on top of also living with mental illness. It’s a fucking pain in the ass sometimes."
— Paul Gilmartin, The Mental Illness Happy Hour #100 (via ongradschool)
"Oh rascal children of Gaza. You who constantly disturb me with your screams under my window. You who filled every morning with rush and chaos.

— Khaled Juma, a Palestinian poet from Gaza. (via nowinexile)
"How cruel, your veins are full of ice-water and mine are boiling."
— Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights (via thatkindofwoman)
