Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
—Nathaniel Hawthorne (via psych-facts)
You know what I’m honestly terrified about? When the United States finally gets marriage equality, and it will, people are going to say, “gay people have equal rights, they don’t have anymore problems.” People will completely forget about violence, murders, proper representation, homeless youth, lack of education, and every problem within the lgbtq+ community, just because people of the same gender can get married. That’s so fucking scary to me.
