"We’re all victims of the architect. Architecture is the only art that you can’t help but feel. You can avoid paintings, you can avoid music, and you can even avoid history. But good luck getting away from architecture."
We play video games to chase our ideal selves.
Make sure you give plenty of reassurance on all fronts. Even if the person acts like they don’t need it. Make sure you’re making a point to gently open them up. They won’t always want to talk about things, and they will oftentimes be far more sensitive than most….

Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed on an equal or greater benefit.
Napolean Hill (via psych-facts)
You get pulled apart by life, like the way you would crack open a living creature. They think that they are safe from the world as they walk around in this hard shell that they’ve created over time, but then the unexpected happens. You get thrown in hot water and then life pulls apart your arms and legs and breaks open your insides. No one goes through life without eventually showing their insides to someone.
