Frida Kahlo has inspired me from the moment I read this quote she said:
Don’t build a wall around your own suffering or it may devour you from the inside.
Since then, I always write everything I think and feel. Reason one, because most of the times I forget things (having a selective memory is something I’ll never get used to), and it’s always good to remember the past, just to check that the present is being at least as good, or even better. And secondly, cause there are things we obviously can’t talk about or can’t tell anyone, but Frida was right: not talking about these things is just risking the fact that it may devour you from inside. When I write it, I tell it. Nobody ever reads it, but it’s a weight I get rid of, and the pain always gets smaller.
So I’ve decided that today I want to talk about how much this woman has inspired me, despite having such a difficult life… and which left us with so much of herself.
I don’t want to tell you the story of her life as (great pitty), it was very sad. I want you to understand all the good things she left behind after she died, which we will always remember and from which we will always be able to learn, every day (I make some of these count, daily)… So ladies and gentleman, here you have a summary of my favorite quotes from Frida Kahlo!
Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?
I used to think I was the strangest person in the world, but then I thought, there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there you read this and know that yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.
Everything can have beauty, even the most horrible.
I want to build. But I am nothing more than an insignificant part of an everything which I am not conscious about yet. .
Each (tick-tock) is a second of the life which passes, flees, and does not return. And there is in this such intensity, such interest, that the problem becomes knowing how to live. Each resolves this as they can.
You cannot get time back. Where you cannot love, do not delay.
There is nothing more precious than laughter.
Take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic.
At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can.
You deserve the best, the very best, because you are one of the few people in this lousy world who are honest to themselves, and that is the only thing that really counts.
Any quote I’ve missed which you know? Kisses and see you on next post, I love u❤️.
