"It kills you to live with a dream still inside of you. It’s worse than dying."
My older (45 year old) friend describing to me the importance of striving for your dreams at all costs, because if you make it to your 40s and realize that you never really tried, while that dream is still inside you… “It kills you” as he said.
Fight to make your dreams a reality, even in the face of seemingly daunting odds and insurmountable circumstances. Then, at least, you will live contentedly knowing that, at worst, you showed up and tried.(via blackinasia)

"So. You want to die. No, I mean, you don’t even want to go through the hassle of dying. You wish you didnt’t exist. If only you could disappear."
