I learned not to trust people; I learned not to believe what they say but to watch what they do; I learned to suspect that anyone and everyone is capable of ‘living a lie’. I came to believe that other people - even when you think you know them well - are ultimately unknowable.(via keep-that-pussy-wet)

Teach your children
to please themselves first,
not others.
To value their opinion
over everyone else’s,
even yours.
To use the word sorry
To hold their head high,
even when they’re drowning.
To be humble, but not
too soft.
To recognize their worth
without someone else’s
