Maybe I need to be for myself everything I’ve been asking people to be for me.
I think I’m starting to understand the benefits of heartbreak. It humbles you. It makes you realize that no matter who you are and what you do, you’re still not for everyone and not everyone will admire you the way you think they will.
1. You’re not happy. You’re always crying. You’re feeling down all the time and it’s affecting your well-being, your productivity, your energy and your mood. 2. Your contact is diminishing.
It’s not enough just to like someone. A crush is not enough. You have to make them feel wanted. You have to make them feel valued.
Thank you for reminding us not to settle for half-love or almost relationships or excuses or maybes. Thank you for showing us that we can be a priority. Thank you for reminding us that those who love us will always put us first.
Love is not supposed to be painful. Suffering is not always the by-product of love.
The truth is, when you try to fix something that is already broken, you’re settling for something that is so frail that it could easily break again. You’re settling for something that could potentially break you.
“I’ve finally learned to love myself and it’s made all the difference in my day-to-day existence. I wake up every morning feeling satisfied and prepared to take on the world!”
And sometimes you drink a little and your eyes tell a different story. Your vulnerable voice tells me you hate this distance. Your body tells me you’re afraid of getting closer.
He won’t wait until everything is perfect or until he’s fully ready to commit. He will jump in with both feet because the thought of losing you makes him sick, the thought of you being with someone else terrifies him and the thought of him loving someone else drives him crazy.
