Complete yourself.

When we’re feeling incomplete, we tend to go out looking for somebody else to complete us. And what happens is that we meet someone who’s compatible with us and they distract us from our deficiency, at least for a while. Then a few months or years into the relationship, we find that we’re still feeling incomplete, so we blame our friend or lover. It feels like they’ve changed, but in reality they haven’t; they’ve just become less of a distraction to our own growing, inner void.

Ultimately what you need to realize is that while a close friend or lover can add beautiful dimensions to your life, you are responsible for your own fulfillment. And only you can complete yourself, only you can give yourself happiness in the inside, deep down in your heart. Nobody else can provide your missing pieces, and to believe otherwise is to succumb to a lifetime of feeling broken, with temporary happiness.

You can close the windows and darken your space, or you can open the windows and let light in. It’s your choice. But remember that the sun is always shining on some part of your life. Love yourself enough to feel happy. Pay attention to the things you tell yourself. Because maybe, just maybe, the only thing that needs to shift in order for you to experience more happiness and more love, is your way of thinking. <3 


We usually find the perfect person for us when we least expect it. It is unplanned and untamed. It is an art form within itself because it catches us off guard. It’s the girl you liked freshman year of high school, but thought you never had a chance. It’s the boy you had a crush on, but he never looked your way. It’s the person we would least expect to fall in love with. It’s in those moments of doubt and despair, that the one for us comes out of no where. It’s where the seed of romance begins to grow. This is the place where the idea of the “the knight in the shining armor”, “the girl of my dreams” comes true. It’s placing the two at the right moment in each other lives, when both thought they would never love again. The beauty of life and love is that it is unpredictable. Without expectation, things can take place at moments notice and a near perfect romance can happen. Two people can accidentally fall in love on a rainy afternoon and two people may find their soul mates the day after, and that’s why it’s beautiful. The cutest couples, the perfect romance, it’s imperfect in life but perfect in love. It is a type of love that can not be duplicated anywhere else. <3

Stop saying forever alone, there are plenty of equally lonely people out there. You just have to be willing to date people as ugly as yourself.
I heard this today. So funny yet so rude.
There comes a day when you realize turning the page is the best feeling in the world - because you realize there’s so much more to the book than the page you were stuck on.
People will stab you in your back and then ask why you’re bleeding.
Growth is painful. Change is painful. But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong.

Does it mean anything if a guy you may be interested in doesn't mention his gf to you?

It means he’s a liar and you should probably avoid him at all costs. There should never be a reason as to why you should try to keep your relationship status hidden. He shouldn’t be keeping it a secret, and if he is, he’s being shady. If he can’t be honest with you from the beginning and just let you know he has a girlfriend, God only knows what else he would lie to you about if you were in a relationship with him. Guys like that in my opinion aren’t worth the trouble, time, and drama they will eventually bring. <3

Do not sabotage your future relationship with your last relationship’s poison.

I sent you a question two days ago, I'm not sure if you received it or not. I would really appreciate a response when you have the chance, your advice is always on point.

I apologize for taking a little longer than usual. I’ve been busy the last couple of days doing photography work. And my sister in law gave birth to my nephew on Monday, so I’ve been in and out of the hospital visiting and what not but I’ll answer everyone’s questions by Friday, so give me a little. Thank you for understanding though, your patience is greatly appreciated. <3

Treat her like you’re still trying to win her, and that’s how you’ll never lose her.
I’m loyal in relationships. If I’m your girlfriend, that’s it. I’m practicing to be your wife at that point because I treat it seriously.
