The Single Girl’s Guide To Living And Laughing (And Sometimes Loving) is a book full of essays on the different stages of love.
I don’t want to become stagnant; I want a spark that will never fade. I will promise to love you if you promise to ignite a wildfire with me in this life and never slow down.
A girl who loves hard, knows exactly how important and vital love is. To love a girl who loves hard, is to love someone who has been broken and broken over and over again, yet still has the capacity in her heart to give more of herself to you.
What I would give to know you, know your face, know your hands. To feel the electricity between us and know it cannot be anything but the forever kind of love.
Be patient. Be gentle. Her past is full of goodbyes, and tears that have watered countless weeds. Her past is full of open wounds and of half loving hearts. So, be the person who changes her future.
Secure: Love requires risk.
Anxiously attached people thrive in relationships that feel “safe,” as that’s when they can really open up and be themselves.
I have finally learned that there is no getting rid of times when you will miss the people you have truly loved. There is no getting rid of that nostalgia. All you can do, is focus on yourself. All you can do is survive. And in time, moving on won’t even be a problem. So, stop trying to ‘move on’ and just start to live.
The entirety of me is not easily swallowed. I am a jigsaw, a complexity, a meal with endless courses. That is to say, I need a lover who loves hard. A lover who loves wholly, who embraces my flaws and cherishes my shortcomings as well as my strengths.
Dwelling on the bad things won’t change those things. It’s better to think of all the good times you’ve spent together.
