My parents don't even know the real me. They don't know how many tears I've cried. How many nights I spent waiting for a call. How many times I've been hurt by some stupid boy. They don't know that their "little princess" has grown up.
“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”—John Lennon (via gwenmccartney) (via soupsoup)
"Cinderella walked on broken glass. Sleeping beauty let a whole lifetime pass. Belle fell in love with a hideous beast. Jasmine married a common thief. Ariel walked on land for love and life. Snow white barely escaped a knife. It was all about blood, sweat, and tears, because love means facing your biggest fears."
