Growth is painful. Change is painful. But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong.Mandy Hale (via insanity-and-vanity
I used to think that going through life trying to be a good person and not hurting anyone is enough.
It isn’t, it is no longer enough.
Because it is akin to doing nothing, when all the injustice and oppression are happening all around us. You can’t be a good person if you sit idly by while certain groups are being marginalized and mistreated. You can’t be a good person if you ignore people who are in need of your help.
We all need to do better.
Loving you was like going to war; I never came back the same.Warshan Shire (via marslipstick)
Others are being tested with difficulty while we are being tested with ease.Nouman Ali Khan (via gems-from-you)
