The right people will find you when they are meant to. So don't worry much about being alone, or being with someone else for that matter. Because right now you're where you have to be, regardless of how you may feel. Your life is preparing you for something much better. Someone worth it. Love makes no mistakes, and people can either be a blessing or a lesson, you decide.

“Numb” a word we are all familiar with. It wasn’t until I heard of the resent passing of the lead singer of Linkin Park that that word really hit me. In a world where we’re surround with so much beauty, we often forget how much pain there is around us as well. So many people struggling with an inner battle that none of us may never know.
In the past, I was one of those people. I don’t often talk about my personal life, but I feel like more people should open up about their struggles in order for others to know that they are not alone.
I remember distinctly listening to that song over and over again in my head, singing the words out loud as I laid on my bathroom floor crying and shoveling pills into my mouth to make the pain go away. I wanted to feel numb. Numb to everything, and for a moment, I did.
The lyrics hit home for me, “I'm tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless, lost under the surface
I don't know what you're expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes
Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow

I've become so numb, I can't feel you there
Become so tired, so much more aware
By becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you”

I was in an emotionally abusive relationship for years, and had grown so used to just pushing my feelings down in order to appear happy on the surface. I closed myself off to everyone because I was embarrassed of the person I had become. I was weak, depressed and knew that what I was doing was only hurting myself and my family but I couldn’t walk away. I thought it would get better eventually. And once I walked away, it finally did.

The reason I’m writing this is to let everyone know they’re not alone. We all struggle with something, and as perfect as our lives appear on social media, just know that we only share our happy moments, and not the bad ones. No one is perfect. So the next time you see someone struggling, reach out and be there for them. Even if it's just to listen. 🖤

She didn’t know what she wanted and she knew no one ever did, but she did know one thing: she wanted to be found by the ocean. She wanted to run wild. She wanted to feel safe but dangerous enough to feel her heart drop. She wanted love, true love, pure and kind and untouched. The kind that wasn’t ruined by the chaos of the world. The kind you found in a small coffee shop in a foreign country. That is all she ever wanted, and she didn’t know where or how it would appear, but she knew, in her gut, it would show itself in the form of something unexpected.

Sometimes you can't explain what you see in people, what makes you fall into them. That's something that happens on its own. But you can control the outcome. You can control how things go, how they effect you, hold you. You have the ability to choose your own happiness. People tend to forget that. They forget happiness is a choice and sometimes the right person finds you when you are not looking at all. ~Rmdrk

Although I love the oceans, deserts, and other wild landscapes, it is always the mountains that call to me with a sort of magnetic pull. They force me to walk deeper and deeper into their beauty. Constantly wanting more. To feel more, see more and most of all, to be more.
