The worst part of living in your head is feeling like you are trapped there forever, alone.
I can’t seem to forget that time still flies. I feel like I am paralyzed without you.
I am sorry that the idea of who I wanted you to be created an unrealistic expectation that I should have never depended on you to fill.
I want to be remembered as the one who showed up. I want people to remember my presence. I want to be there for the ups and the downs, the celebrations and the trials, the failures and the wins.
I want you to remember the good parts, the times that seemed like they could last forever. That’s what I saw in you: a forever.
I delete your number. I unfollow you on social media. I have occasional lapses. I’ll look you up on Facebook. I’ll reread old letters. But there are days when you aren’t my first thought in the morning.
Please, give people the benefit of the doubt. Think about where they are coming from. Have empathy.
You tell me to have faith, and God, I am really trying.
You can never be fully present or in control.
Sensitivity is never a weakness. You don’t need to be heartless to be strong.
