Whether you’re on the path of recovery or school or anything, don’t give up! Keep at it, there are flowers where you’ve stepped, even if you don’t know where you’re going. <3

I feel like this should be pretty self-explanatory. I’m drawing these for a zine at my college (and they have a tumblr! lips-appstate.tumblr.com!), but submissions are due today, so they’re a bit more rushed than I would have liked.

I tried to be inclusive and not-shitty. Hopefully I succeeded at that. There are more of these I’d like to draw, but like I said, time limitations :P

Some people are born to be leaders.
Some are born to be followers.
Some people are born to save.
Some were born to be saved.
Some people are born to be humble.
Some are born to be vain.
Some are born sick.
Some born healthy.
Some people are born straight.
Some are born not to be.
Some were born smart.
Some were born to learn.

And some people are just born to be.

But we are all born Human.

"You never get to the point where you think “I am the adult”, but you do get to the point where you think “I’ve dealt with this before.” The older you get, the higher and higher the percentage is of things you’ve already been through. Have you ever changed a tire? Had a flat tire? Someday, you might, and the next time it happens, you’ll know what to do, since you’ve already done it."

My dad. I’m 24, and asked if you ever shake the feeling of not being an adult, and this was his response. Probably the most comforting thing he could have said. (via plovent)

if someone tells you you’re beautiful, you tell them they are too. if someone says they love you, decide if they mean it before you say it in return. if a boy tells you he’d date you if you didn’t smoke, light a cigarette and walk away. if your mother screams at you because she’s had a bad day, close your eyes and leave her to her anger. if last nights lover doesn’t call you back, do not cry and blame yourself.

This is important
