Now Playing Tracks

Breathe. You’re going to be okay. Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass.

My struggles as a book addict

  • 1:

    Talking myself out of buying books I can't afford.

  • 2:

    Having a reading list that I won't be able to complete in one life time.

  • 3:

    Every book looks appealing.

  • 4:

    Everyone assumes that I've read every book they mention.

  • 5:

    Then when I say I haven't read the book they mention, they give me one of "those" looks (you know what look I'm talking about."

  • 6:

    I actually feel an ache to shop for

  • 7:

    I'm running out of room.

  • 8:

    All the books in one genre start sounding the same after a while.

  • 9:

    Reading strikes.

  • 10:

    Book Affairs.

  • 11:

    Leaving a book half-finished.

  • 12:

    Never finishing a series.

  • 13:

    Not sleeping.

  • 14:

    People talking to me when I'm trying to read a really good book.

  • 15:

    Having a parent tell you that you read to much and/or spend too much money on books.

  • 16:

    All of the bookcases and bookshelves on Tumblr look like something made for your future home.

  • 17:

    Book porn. It's lethal.

  • 18:

    Doing nothing all day because a book needs to be read.
