What’s terrible is to pretend that second-rate is first-rate. To pretend that you don’t need love when you do; or you like your work when you know quite well you’re capable of better.
Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook (via kushandwizdom)
When you start seeing your worth, you’ll find it harder to stay around people who don’t.
Worth by Emily S. P. (via bummedteenager)
