I miss being understood. I miss being accepted. I miss being loved.
Sometimes it feels like you have everything but it also means nothing. Sometimes it feels like you’re only putting on a show and now you’re running out of ideas.
You can’t just text me out of the blue and demand a response after going months without texting me, after you made me wait anxiously for a response I never got.
It’s hard for you to find love because you found more safety in your loneliness. You like knowing that you don’t have to deal with anyone who could be lying to you or cheating on you or about to break your heart. You like having the upper hand.
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.
