Last year, I cancelled plans a million times. I backed out of social situations. I texted instead of called. I pushed people away.
I have friends who could drive to my place in fewer than ten minutes — but they do not check in on me as often as you. They do not make time for me as often as you. They do not care as much as you.
Bad timing is not the reason you never got together. Lack of feelings is the reason you never got together. Fear of taking risks is the reason you never got together. Hesitation to leave your comfort zone is the reason you never got together.
“Healing happens over time and it cannot be rushed. It’s delicate and private. Healing is an everyday process.”
Caring is not a crime. Getting attached easily is not a sign of a weakened heart.
When you turn down dates, when you delete dating apps, when you lie about your feelings, when you choose to stay single instead of taking a chance on someone who makes you feel alive, you are not protecting yourself from heartache. You are choosing to break your own heart.
Do not send mixed signals. Do not make me play mind reader. Do not expect me to guess how you feel about me.
Most of us are hung up on someone we never dated. Most of us are healing from a relationship that never happened. Most of us are mourning a person who never belonged to us in the first place.
I never saw anyone else coming. I assumed you were only interested in me. I assumed our feelings were the same strength. I assumed you were only single because you were scared of commitment and I would be the one to change that for you.
You will spoil them rotten because it makes you happy to see them happy.
