Ask MeMy Soul

"They say Van Gogh would eat his yellow paint because he thought that he would get the happiness inside of him. And people thought that he was mad and stupid for doing it, but he did it anyways and i don’t think it’s so crazy. If you’re sad enough that even the craziest of ideas might be able to help, then you should do it. It’s just the same as falling in love. You know, you could have your heart completely broken but you do it anyways because the chance at happiness is greater than the insanity of heartbreak. Everybody has their yellow paint, that little thing that could mean the end that they do because it’s worth it."

Why I Don’t Love My Fiance

Why I Don’t Love My Fiance

Originally posted on Michael 101:

In 130 days I’m getting married, and a friend recently asked me why I love my fiancé. I wanted to share a deeper perspective on Amanda and I’s relationship, so before I answered why I love her, I had to first explain to him the reasons I don’t love my future bride to be.
