You begin to think, what is it about that girl that he wants? What is it she has that I don’t? Some things, like the emotions you feel for another person, are sometimes inexplicable and incontrollable, and you have to accept that as a fact of life.
I love you when you’re at you’re best and I will still love you when you’re at you’re worst.
A person who truly loves you will love the whole you, no questions asked
You don’t owe them your time, your respect, or an answer to their text.
I should have fought for you.
You lose her when you make her feel that being with her is like being with any other girl.
What I can take away from this is this was our first year separated. It was a long hard year with many firsts.
They mean that everyone they’ve ever had feelings for has turned out to disappoint them. They mean that no matter how many times they open up their heart to love, they end up getting punished for it.
I cannot help but think about how I pretend to be this strong person yet I unconsciously still try to aspire to other people’s expectations of me.
I go back to the coffee shop and make eyes at Grayson. He remembers my order. I want to faint.
I know you’re tired. I can see it in your eyes.
There is a difference between wanting abundance and choosing it.
Toxic people see someone like this and they are attracted to the fact they know they can control them. And people with good hearts simply try and appease them.
You couldn’t have told us this a month ago, Trump?
They teach us that we can make it through life’s losses in stride, no matter how tough they are and how much they hurt us.
You convince yourself that you need them and that happiness can’t be found without them, even though happiness isn’t really a word you’d use to describe your time with them.
Every story – even love stories that have been over for years, or decades – can be rebooted in an instant. It’s not until the real end, death without quotation marks, that “closure” in the truest sense of the word can be achieved, and then, only for those who are no longer around to benefit from it.
I said it before and I’m not afraid to say it again – I’ll wait for you.
Suck on an ice cube to get your tongue cold, and then eat out your girlfriend or give your boyfriend a blowjob.
I quit my teaching job at age 26. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do next, career-wise, which honestly terrified me. I just knew that teaching wasn’t for me.
One constant in my life is that I always leave – and probably always will – but the other constant is that I still have friends that love me even though I always leave them behind, so thank you for loving me regardless of where I am.
It’s about learning something from it, even if it doesn’t turn out to be as you expected.
“If it’s not about them then it didn’t really happen.”
If he loves you, he will not be okay with you not being okay. If he is a decent human being, he will want to know about his selfish behaviour and how it affects you. If he is kind, he will not be able to see you being sad over something he has done wrong. You are doing both yourself and him an injustice by not trusting him with your true feelings in lieu of being low maintenance.
I had everything that made you leave. What does she have that finally made you stay?
Who even has time for pants anymore?
Aries: You would be arrested for arson. When you’re angry, it’s impossible to calm you down. You scream and curse and flip your shit. Even after the argument is over and the dust has settled, you’re skilled at holding grudges.
Find yourself. Find yourself in books and stories and TV shows and movies and the night sky and the forest and the walks in the rain and everything else that makes you feel beautiful, even if it is for a moment, for a second, for a day. Then find the people who never let you forget that, who always help you shine.
Pieces of the same old me are back, some pieces will never return. Now I want to live, not just survive the day, a feeling I thought would never return.
I’m a little sad and a little scared to assume my power as an adult person in this world. So because I am an action-item oriented human, I’m choosing to (at least try to) cancel out the self-doubt with self-love.
It honestly breaks my little heart and causes the bricks to be stacks quicker on my burdened chest. My anxiety grows ten fold and the sickening voice inside my head won’t shut up. It’s like all that matters in my life is grey. And muted.
One day God the Father was sitting up in heaven reading The Holy Bible, and he realized how patriarchal it all was.
Maybe the open sky isn’t as scary as you thought
Maybe with me, you could finally fly and feel the freedom of it
See through the thick clouds and witness the tangerine sunset
To marvel at, explicitly. To worship, overtly. To raise my gaze upwards when I look to you, but to not stop there, to go even further – and to do it, ever – so proudly.
How do I forget the moment I looked at you and just knew I loved you more than anyone?
Loving with no expectations. Just loving. I think that’s the most beautiful thing in the world.
I don’t care how many times you tell me you’re sorry, because no amount of halfhearted apologies can make up for what you put me through.
Learn how to walk away if you’re the only one making the effort. If you’re the only one trying and if it leaves you feeling like you’re not good enough every time you stay but your feelings are not reciprocated.
It isn’t love if he can hold another woman in his arms knowing you’re going to bed alone thinking of him.
I’m just me. And the “she” that I saw with that guy is also just…her. She’s as human as I am, and so there’s really no competition.
Being young is like having a one-way ticket to Wonderland, then all of a sudden, everything gets blurry and it’s all gone.
You can win a girl back by being patient. By realizing that it might take her some time to trust you again.
It is hard to learn stuff, but I believe the biggest thing in life is relearning.
Maybe ‘home’ is not about where you are, but about how you feel. The way you find yourself belonging to a person or place, simply because it’s where your heart has decided to rest.
I didn’t know that love could be this drowning, this exhausting till your love dragged this long.
You lose an intelligent girl by refusing to expand your knowledge. By never reading her favorite book. By telling her you think a museum date would be too boring.
We’re humans. We’re messy and nostalgic and prone to romanticizing the past.
Why should you shop alone? Invite your friends to gather around your device and discover unique, handcrafted items alongside you.
What if someone actually had the guts to pick you apart and fix your flaws?
You have to make the conscious decision to live your life for you and not let it pass you by waiting for something magical to happen.
