Be weird. Be random. Be who you are. Because you never know who would love the person you hide.

Fat trans boys are important. Trans boys with wide hips are important. Short trans boys are important. Trans boys who have no muscles are important. Trans boys without body hair are important. Trans boys with round faces, small frames, tiny hands and feet? All are important. All are men. All are trans enough, even if some “don’t pass” or “look too feminine”. There’s not enough accepting, body positive posts going around made strictly for trans men. That needs to change.

The term “effervescent” describes something that shimmers in the manner of light reflecting off of bubbles in water – or, more simply, something that sparkles.
Edward Cullen, a well-known sparkly vampire, employing a term that means “sparkly” as a general purpose superlative is basically equivalent to how Smurfs describe anything good as “Smurfy”.

I used to dislike being sensitive. I thought it made me weak. But take away that single trait, and you take away the very essence of who I am. You take away my conscience, my ability to empathize, my intuition, my creativity, my deep appreciation for the little things, my vivid inner life, my deep awareness of others’ pain, and my passion for it all.

The best kind of people are the ones who come into your life, and make you see the sun where you once saw clouds. The people who believe in you so much, you start to believe in you too. The people who love you, simply for being you.

It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent.

I love that Kafka's diary entries have become such a staple on tumblr. It feels like he was ATAD (assigned tumblerina after death) and we're doing the dirty work, transferring his angst from paper and ink into veritable posts doing the numbers

Go and love someone exactly as they are. then, watch how they transform into the greatest truest version of themselves. when one feels seen and appreciated in their own essence, one is instantly empowered.
