You’re not going to make it through this life pain-free, and you can miss out on a lot of opportunities for joy and personal growth by trying to do so. Instead of falling in love with the highs in life, allow yourself (or train yourself, as the case may be) to fall madly in love with the belief that Jesus will continuously bring you back to those highs after you’ve become low once more. Understand the inevitability of the pain that it may not control you.
Because make no mistake: you will become low once more — and once more after that. Accepting this is the first step; figuring out whether your pain can be used for personal growth or the edification of your fellows is the next.
I know that I’m hard to love. Some days I’m all smiles and affection and then other days there’s nothing I want more than to be quiet and lie in bed.
Sometimes I get angry about stupid things and won’t want to talk to you. Other days I’ll think that you’re the most perfect person in the world.
Please don’t give up on me. I know it’s not easy but I’ll always come back to you.
As a bisexual, it sickens me that some people WILL keep scrolling.
As the straight daughter of a gay man, it sickens me that some people will keep scrolling.
As a straight girl with a basic understanding of equality and love, it also sickens me that people will keep scrolling.
As a straight Christian woman, I pray that people will not scroll past this. Love, not judge.
I’m re-reblogging for that last one.
