if you are softer
than before
they came.
you
have been loved.

Nayyirah Waheed, salt. ( (via brntsienna)

professoralbusdumbledore:

when you hate your legs 
remember that they carried you through the hardest parts of your life. they get you out of bed every day and take you to what you love.

when you hate your stomach
remember that it helped you gain strength. it holds the memories of deep laughter and great meals. it is full of warmth and joy.

when you hate your arms
remember that they are strong, which makes you strong. but they are also soft and can be used to cuddle and hold the ones you love.

Truly you don’t have to worry darling until night. We won’t let the night things come in the day.
Ernest Hemingway, from The Garden Of Eden (via avvfvl)
