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.
You can stop holding yourself back, stop playing by an imaginary set of dating rules, and ask for clarification when it’s needed.
You should be there to support me, not to lecture me, not to make me feel even worse about the situation, not to make me feel like it was a mistake trying to talk to you in the first place.

Sometimes, you need to cry about what’s happened to you in order to get over what’s happened to you. Sometimes, your misery is a stepping stone toward acceptance.
