Every relationship is messed up. What makes it perfect is if you still want to be there when things really suck.
Carla, Scrubs / S2 x Ep. 16 (via ileu)
Teenage girls, please don’t worry about being super popular in high school, or being the best actress in high school, or the best athlete. Not only do people not care about any of that the second you graduate, but when you get older, if you reference your successes in high school too much, it actually makes you look kind of pitiful, like some babbling old Tennessee Williams character with nothing else going on in her current life. What I’ve noticed is that almost no one who was a big star in high school is also big star later in life. For us overlooked kids, it’s so wonderfully fair.
Mindy Kaling, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (via emotional-algebra)
I’m seeing so many fans write to me on Instagram and Twitter, or in letters, saying they’re having such a tough time with life, because they can’t imagine that we can experience such great pain, such intense loss, such insecurity. And the thing that I just wish I could tell them, over and over, is that we live for these fleeting moments of happiness. Happiness is not a constant. It’s something that we only experience glimpses of every once in a while - but it’s worth it. And I think that’s what they’ll take away from this movie.
