I am slowly learning I do not owe anyone my attention if it means I get to give it continuously while receiving nothing in return.
You will know how to greet that old friend but still insist on saying your goodbyes, because you are too brave to let this sadness defeat you or overstay.
It is okay to want to make a home out of a person. This was not your mistake. The mistake is forgetting that you are a home too and you should return to yourself every night and feel just as safe.
It doesn’t become weird then to say that we feel lost.
Why would I want to remold facts or change my beliefs only because you left?
I hope you learn how to love someone for the way he likes to drink his tea or for the way he pulls an effort to show off something he has done.
You think everything is going perfect. You think nothing will beat your bond. You have met the love of your life and nothing ever could draw you apart. You think you know each other well nothing can come between you but this is not how life works.
The mistake was that I wanted you to love me so much I forgot to love myself.
Your phone doesn’t ring. Social media is basically the only way you get in touch with others. The only way to show them that you’re alive. You believe that if you deactivated your online accounts no one would notice your absence.
Love is not a game. Love is not about rules. Love is about souls, about hearts, and about that mirror that we allow to reflect our spirits so that we are truly naked before each other.
