“I’m always impressed if a buddy brings a new girl around and she can just walk around and socialize without needing to be standing next to him or clinging to him the entire time. If she just goes off on her own and introduces herself to people, I immediately like her.”
The average person might be trained to gloss over the details that make her seem vulnerable or anything other than put together, but the truth is that we’re all messy, flawed individuals. By stepping forward as the perfectly imperfect woman you are, you will come across as totally unconcerned by what others think, and incredibly relatable.
I wish I’d met you when I used to wait for people to make up their minds, when I used to believe that waiting is part of love, when I used to think that waiting for someone will make them come back to you because it means you care. But I met you when I waited and nothing happened, when I waited and they picked someone else, when I waited and I wasted my time and when I waited and I got heart broken. I wish I’d met you when I was capable of waiting for you. But I know better.
If they’ll stay. Because they’ve already stayed, stayed enough to prove they’re never leaving.
It means I can sense you’re at a different pace. It means you like me waaayy more than I like you and I’m not ready for that kind of emotional wave.
I’m sending you a winged eyeliner tutorial. Truthfully, I should’ve done this a long time ago.
I don’t really look back at you as an honest heartbreak-maybe more like a bruise. It can sting when I think about how things ended so vaguely and open ended.
Darling, there’s nothing about us that should add up to love so why, why am standing here with my heart in my hand so desperately hoping you take it?
There is a whole life to live outside doing things for others. I promise you life will continue if you start putting yourself first, just like I promise you the sun will continue to rise and set every day and every night without you guiding it.
When we said goodbye, it felt like a temporary situation. Like maybe, we were just putting everything on hold.
