I would break myself over and over again wondering why I wasn’t good enough, why you didn’t want to stay once the sun came up, why you didn’t want to commit. But I realized it was my own fault.
Don’t allow someone to start treating you poorly just because you’ve been together a “long time.” The little things and compliments should never stop.
It’s easy to believe someone is different because it’s what you want to believe. You want to believe the person you love and you want to believe things are going to be better this time around.
You are not too much or too little, you do not love too hard or feel too much, you do not need to change a single thing about yourself to make someone more attracted to you because you are perfectly enough the way you are.
You’re choosing to stay stuck instead of moving forward with your life. Everything in life is a choice. You make thousands of decisions every day. You have the option to stay stuck in the shitty situation you’re in or you have the ability to move on and move forward. That’s all on you.
You die a little inside every time you see your dog do something cute.
Don’t change who you are to impress someone. It’s not worth it. You aren’t going to be for everyone and that is okay, just like everyone isn’t for you. That doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with you. Be who you are and the right person will like you just for that.
I push you away because I can’t see how someone like you could love someone like me. I don’t believe it. I see my flaws like a neon sign in the dead of the night.
I want to do all the things that fill my soul with passion, all the things that society looks down upon because it’s not “together” or “professional.” I want to do those things because those are the things that make me feel like life is worth living, so I’m not going to stop.
And there’s nothing wrong with going back in a moment of weakness only to light yourself on fire again because you can’t stand the thought of living without them.
