Hi, I'm Tina.
I blog to express, not to impress.
I try express myself by writing.
But i'll also be blogging/reblogging quotes and pictures in lieu of my words.

All the people
I thought were made for me,
are not.

All the ones
I thought I’d always keep in touch with,
we fell out.

All the things
that used to hurt,
hurt less.

All the moments
I kept replaying in my head,
have faded.

All the times
I thought I would always be weak,
I toughened up.

All my friends
I fell in love with and admired,
I’ve distanced myself from.

All the things
I hated about myself,
I am learning to love.

And all the ones
I thought I couldn’t live without,
are gone;
yet I am still breathing.

If you know yourself, you’ll not be harmed by what is said about you.

I cannot make you understand. I cannot make anyone understand what is happening inside me. I cannot even explain it to myself.

You were made for community and anyone who tells you that you can do it alone is a liar. You were made to have people who love you and who long to see you made whole by Jesus.

We can’t selectively numb emotion. Numb the dark and you numb the light.

I am determined to practice deep listening. I am determined to practice loving speech.

I’m always soft for you, that’s the problem. You could come knocking on my door five years from now and I would open my arms wider and say ‘come here, it’s been too long, it felt like home with you.’
Azra.T “My Heart is Full of Open Windows.” (via cavum)

i kind of hate you a little bit,
but not as much as i would have
if i’d loved you before
so many things happen in a year
i grow ugly
i grow sad
i grow happy
sometimes, i bloom
but none of my petals hold your
name and i don’t want
to kiss your mouth
at all
this isn’t about me
this is about self
destruction
about how all the dreams
of you turned to ash
and other things i don’t
want to inhale
fire, only lesser
you don’t burn me anymore
and i no longer think about
your eyes in the dark
because so many things happen
in a year and me changing
is one of them
shedding skin and
evolving minds and
other things that mean
that i don’t like your heart
anymore
i used to think you were
a tidal wave, but
all you are is the
rain in the
winter that i
don’t fucking
want

The heat of autumn is different from the heat of summer. One ripens apples, the other turns them to cider.
