To the girl who has replaced me, you are incredibly lucky. You have hit the jackpot and the lottery all in one sitting. So don’t screw it up. Don’t mess this one up. Or else you’ll be just like me, and forever regret the day you ever said goodbye to a man like him.

Not only are they looking for a good boyfriend or girlfriend, but they are looking for someone who will understand their mental illness. They can’t date someone who is ignorant to their problem, and they need someone who can give them empathy and support.
I don’t know what exactly happened when we laid eyes on each other. Maybe it had something to do with science, or biology, but I’d like to believe it was magic. I’d like to believe that we, were magic.
Sprout imperfections and scars with each petal you bloom, and don’t ever apologize for just being you. Be a wildflower, one that comes from nothing and grows into something.
