When you buy food at a counter or window and there’s a line, leave as soon as you’ve paid. Don’t organize your things, don’t chat with the cashier, don’t talk to your friend, leave. You’re not ‘taking your time’ you’re “taking time from other people.”
Scars, wounds, bruises, tears are everything that’s left from the many years of emotional investment. You look into the mirror, you feel sorry for the girl staring back at you, wondering if she’ll ever be worthy of a love that she thinks she deserves.
One of the most satisfying feelings that we can have as humans is the feeling of growth.
Whether you are embarking on your first date or 10th, there is a reason why both of you have accepted the possibility of getting to know each other.
