Having a soft heart doesn’t mean that people should treat you like they’re better or more important than you.
The truth is the wrong ones don’t care about losing you. Their lives go on with or without you. They don’t think you add anything special to their lives.
This is me finally understanding that anything is not better than nothing. That nothing is better than almost.
And maybe we don’t need to change something if we don’t think it’s wrong. Maybe we don’t need to change it if it’s serving us well. Maybe we don’t need to be part of the majority to feel like we belong.
Seeing your message reminded me of the last message I sent you that you ignored. The message that I needed you to respond to so I can move on.
Forgive yourself for not being able to save yourself or others from certain situations because you didn’t have the courage to speak up. This is how you learn to use your voice. This is how you learn the power of words. This is how you learn that silence won’t save you.
I hope you remember the days you believed — the days nothing stopped you from trying, when you weren’t afraid of taking any risks and you weren’t afraid of falling.
I’m slowly learning that things that didn’t work out will eventually work out. In another year, with another person, in a different city, in an unexpected way.
Spend more time with the hopeless romantics. The ones who think you can be with the one you truly love. The ones who believe that old lovers come back and love changes people and love conquers all.
One day you will be the reason someone stays. You will be the reason why they no longer run away. You will be the person who makes them want to settle down.
