You need to put in the effort. You need to take the initiative. You have the power to transform your own life. Take it.
If you want someone spontaneous, someone who is going to drop everything to hang out with you the second you text, then I’m not the right person for you.
It distracts me. It occupies me. It forces my brain to focus on something other than the pain.
The only thing you’re in control of is how you react to the situation, how you bounce back from whatever you were put through, how you choose to move forward.
I would rather feel deeply than pretend I don’t feel anything at all.
It’s hard to feel productive when it seems like all of your hard work hasn’t been paying off. It’s hard to give yourself an incentive to keep going when it seems like you aren’t getting any closer to your goals.
They expect more from you than they’re willing to give to you.
You can miss them and be glad they’re gone at the same time.
You’re not destined to fail, destined to disappoint, destined to feel this miserable forever.
You’re the fun friend. You’re the one who makes everyone laugh. You’re the one who lightens the mood. You’re the one who makes everyone around you feel better when they’re going through something, not the one who brings up their own problems.
