When you have something good, love it. Be kind to it. Look beyond the minor imperfections or minor bruises, don’t try to make it spotless or whole again, love it the way you got it, the way you found it, the way you just couldn’t take your eyes off it when you first saw it and how you kept thinking about it all night.
You still follow your heart but you don’t lose your mind in the process. You understand that love won’t always be easy, you know there will be fights and tough situations you have to deal with, you know that there will be difficult conversations to have and you know that you can’t leave someone at the first sign of trouble. You are more patient and more forgiving.
I wish I had listened to her when she told me that guys like you will never mend hearts like mine when they’re the ones who keep breaking them.
You don’t really care about instant gratification. You’re looking for long-term happiness, you’re looking for something that lasts, you want to find work that is meaningful to you even if it doesn’t pay well, you would rather stay single than date ‘casually’ and you are more interested in leaving a legacy than just living in the moment.
You will never be satisfied with what you have if all you do is keep swiping. You will never get to know someone when you’re already looking for the next best thing, you will never appreciate a conversation when you have ten other unopened conversations. You will never get to see someone’s real beauty if you keep thinking of the other 50 photos on your screen.
They don’t worry about what people think. They don’t try to keep up appearances or try to please people. They don’t try to get everyone’s attention. They’re happy with a certain group of friends and they will not do things they are not really feeling to fit in – they know how to stand out regardless.
Our memories already make the future long for the past and our love already puts all other lovers to shame.
When you feel lonely most of the time. If the relationship makes you feel lonely, then what’s the point? If you can’t share your life with the person you’re with, then you’re not in a real relationship.
What if we told each other how we feel and how we felt all along? What if we saw each other every day and held each other every night?
It’s better to be alone than with someone who doesn’t appreciate you or someone who makes you believe that loving you is hard.
