"my new standard of cool: when i’m hanging out with you, i never see your phone, ever." posted by scott simpson.
that is such a great thing to want from someone, and im guessing pretty common. i know even myself im a prisoner to my mobile device at times. i’m going to try and be better about paying attention to the life i have when im out with friends, as opposed to ignoring it. respect the people that are spending time with you, when things get dull instead of pulling out your fucking phone say something interesting… make an effort…
i just did some pretty serious bike riding. abs and legs hurt…. but i like it! i should ride more often. now to see if i can sleep or if the coughing kicks (its been weeks of this). i really need some sleep or to see a doctor.
how can i be heartbroken about all this at once? after a year i don’t know how to overcome everything that has built up. one thing stacking on another. everyone is tired of me being butthurt. im really just at a loss, tired of pretending. i wish i deserved the truth, im easier to ignore.
at some point someone dear to me said “all i can try to do is be the best person i can be to those around me.” and its one of the simplest/greatest things i’ve heard, he genuinely meant it.
i’ve been on a mean streak and i know it. if you are good and treat others the best you can atleast at the end of each day you will feel more whole. its worth a shot, even if i start tomorrow. i don’t want anyone in my life that isn’t worth that.
