So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.

Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.

— The Staying Philosophy (Everyday Isa)

(via wordsthat-speak)

“i think one
of the most pathological
things i have ever seen
is
to stab
someone
and
then tell them that
their
pain and anger
over being stabbed
is
making you sad.”

  • Director: Do you have a monologue prepared for us today?
  • Me: Yes I do.
  • Director: In your own time.
  • Me: Ashley Katchadourian... you were supposed to be watching the door. You... were supposed to be watching the door. You were supposed... to be watching the door, Ashley Katchadourian. Do you know what these are Ashley Katchadourian? These are a little girls arms. A little girl with dreams, with legs, with a head. She's a pencil, she's a swizzle stick, you can use her as a pool noodle, and now i'm holding up her arms. Her arms. I'm holding them because you weren't watching the door. A girl lost her arms Ashley Katchadourian, a girl lost her fucking arms. Do you not know what has transpired while you were in pearl harbor, seeing the fucking Japanese museum? We had our own pearl harbor here today. Oh my god, how could you do this to us, you literally bombed us like the Japanese you are. And me, I'm Ben Affleck. I'm Ben Affleck and i'm holding two fucking girls arms. And you're Cuba Gooding junior disappointing everybody. Live with that!
