You are not a failure or undeserving of respect just because there are those who have failed to give you the love that you deserve.
Each and every one of us is a beautiful, complicated mess.
The truth about hellos is that you have to anticipate a goodbye somewhere in the end. It doesn’t really matter when, but eventually, it comes.
Mixed signals are another code for slightly-interested-but-not-enough. And you deserve more than that. You deserve someone who is sure. You deserve someone who isn’t stuck in some kind of emotional limbo, debating what exactly it is he feels about you.
