I’m tired of living unable to love anyone. I don’t have a single friend - not one. And, worst of all, I can’t even love myself. Why is that? Why can’t i love myself? It’s because I can’t love anyone else. A person learns how to love himself through the simple acts of loving and being loved by someone else. Do you understand what I am saying? A person who is incapable of loving another cannot properly love himself.
Haruki Murakami, 1Q84 (via ruimmunity)

Haruki Murakami (via seemedtostopmybreath)
Sometimes I feel so- I don’t know - lonely. The kind of helpless feeling when everything you’re used to has been ripped away. Like there’s no more gravity, and I’m left to drift in outer space with no idea where I’m going.

What makes us most normal is knowing that we’re not normal.

She’d grabbed on to my heart with a rare intensity. […] I could still feel Miu’s small palm on my back, like a soul’s tiny shadow.
Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart (1999)
Find me now. Before someone else does.

Don’t pointless things have a place, too, in this far-from-perfect world? Remove everything pointless from an imperfect life, and it’d lose even its imperfection.
Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart (via shyneee)
I said nothing for a time, just ran my fingertips along the edge of the human-shaped emptiness that had been left inside me.
