Motion City Soundtrack - Not Asking You To Leave (Even If It Kills Me (B Side))
From nervous hands to nervous nightmares
I often wake and find…
We’re not alone, just lonely all of the time
"I search for humour in every situation I find myself in. Being able to laugh shit off is an art I’ve mastered."
"You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you — it’s something inherent. You exist, and therefore, you matter. You’re allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You’re allowed to assert your needs and take up space. You’re allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough. And you’re allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise."
"Date yourself. Take yourself out to eat. Don’t share your popcorn at the movies with anyone. Stroll around an art museum alone. Fall in love with canvases. Fall in love with yourself."
"Your 20’s are your ‘selfish’ years. It’s a decade to immerse yourself in every single thing possible. Be selfish with your time, and all the aspects of you. Tinker with shit, travel, explore, love a lot, love a little, and never touch the ground."
"You have to believe in yourself. That’s the only way you are going to push yourself further."
"My life’s progressively getting better."

I love this mashup.
Dashboard Confessional - The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most (The Places You have Come to Fear the Most)
Buried deep as you can dig inside yourself
And hidden in the public eye
Such a stellar monument to loneliness
Laced with brilliant smiles and shining eyes
Perfect make-up, but you’re barely scraping by
But you’re barely scraping by…
