Om jag vill lyckas med att föra en
människa mot ett bestämt mål måste jag
först finna henne där hon är och börja just där.

Den som inte kan det lurar sig själv när
hon tror hon kan hjälpa andra.

För att hjälpa någon måste jag visserligen
förstå mer än vad han gör men först och
främst förstå det han förstår.

Om jag inte kan det så hjälper det inte att
jag kan mer och vet mer.

Vill jag ändå visa hur mycket jag kan så
beror det på att jag är fåfäng och
högmodig och egentligen vill bli beundrad
av den andre i stället för att hjälpa honom.

All äkta hjälpsamhet börjar med
ödmjukhet inför den jag vill hjälpa och
därmed måste jag förstå att detta med att
hjälpa inte är att vilja härska utan att vilja tjäna.
Kan jag inte detta så kan jag heller inte hjälpa.

Sören Kierkegaard

Everything I've ever let go of has claw marks on it.

"I am trying to see things in perspective. My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot have this, because chocolate makes dogs very sick. My dog does not understand this. She pouts and wraps herself around my leg like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in, she eventually gives up and lays in the corner, under the piano, drooping and sad.
I hope the universe has my best interest in mind like I have my dogs. When I want something with my whole being, and the universe withholds it from me, I hope the universe thinks to herself "Silly girl. She thinks this is what she wants, but she does not understand how it will hurt.""

You never meet the right people at the wrong time because the right people are timeless. The right people make you want to throw away the plans you originally had for one and follow them into the hazy, unknown future without a glance backwards. The right people don't make you hmm and haw about whether or not you want to be with them- you just know. You know that any adventure you had originally planned out for your future isn't going to be half as incredible as the adventures you could have by their side. That no matter what you thought you wanted before, this is better. Everything is better since they came along. When you are with the right person, time falls away. You don't worry about fitting then into your complicated schedule, because they become a part of that schedule. They become the backbone of it. Your happiness becomes your priority and so long as they are contributing to it, you can work around the rest.
