Thank you for making me realize that trying to water a dead flower isn’t going to bring it back to life.
I hope that one day someone will ask you if you have any regrets and my name is the first thing that pops into your mind.
A dream can break your heart.
I am no longer the insecure and broken little girl who fell in love with someone who didn’t respect me. I am stronger, wiser, and more confident about what I have to offer the world. I know better than to settle for mediocrity in relationships, and I refuse to let the fire burning brightly within me fizzle out at the hands of someone else.
It’s funny how much an animal can teach us about love.
So please, be the girl who still believes in love even after everything she has been through. After the pain and hurt you’ve felt and suffered, still love with all your heart when love presents itself to you again.
An entire sea, you’re still lovesick on one fish
who swims in the opposite direction.
You can’t hook-line-and-sink him
if his heart keeps looking for her
in every crowded room.
I was done wasting my own time and breaking my own heart. I was done apologizing for having feelings and standards for how to be treated. I was done sabotaging myself and dragging him down with me.
Good people don’t make others feel less than. They don’t control them with horrible words or extort their insecurities.
As hard as it is to accept a future without him, you have to. You have to for your own good because living in the past won’t help you with the future.
