This is exactly why I'm terrified to open up to people. What if they don't care about me as much as I thought they did? This happened to me with a friend, actually a "best friend" =P anyway, once I get a boyfriend and we get serious or whatever he's going to HAVE to show me exactly how much he cares about me before I feel confident enough to open up to him
Be careful and choose wisely what you allow to occupy the stage of your dominate thoughts, for truly the quality of your thinking determines the happiness of your life. “Man is made or unmade by himself. In the armory of thought he forges the weapons by which he destroys himself. He also fashions the tools with which he builds for himself heavenly mansions of joy and strength and peace.” –James Allen (from his inspiring book ‘As A Man Thinketh’)
People don't naturally think outside the box. Big picture is God's picture. It takes time to turn a big ship around. I can not wait to watch Him begin to work! It is not at all what I thought it might be which is even more awesome. Love comes in all different forms. He had to show me to think different first.
"A library in the middle of a community is a cross between an emergency exist, a life-rat and a festival. They are cathedrals of the mind; hospitals of the soul; theme parks of the imagination. On a cold rainy island, they are the only sheltered public spaces where you are not a consumer, but a citizen instead." Caitlin Moran in "The Book Habit"
