Be a good listener. Be in their shoes. Be understanding.
This love will be real.
ENFP: Your freedom should be respected and cherished even, but you have to respect your partner, too. It’s one thing to be free, another thing to neglect/ignore them for something “better” in the name of freedom.
They have their hearts set on branching outwards, on bettering themselves, on becoming the ultimate version of themselves.
You can’t get used to your person swooping in when something is wrong and playing the hero. You can’t rely on them to handle all of your problems for you. You can’t forget you are supposed to be a team.
Making slow, gradual progress is better than making no progress. Spending years working toward a goal is better than giving up on that goal completely.
There are too many options, which makes everyone feel replaceable.

I am here to tell you that it is time you forgive. Forgive yourself for not being enough.
If life was a constant state of happiness, you wouldn’t know any different. We need the bad to show us what good feels like.

Do not believe that you have to settle for a love that doesn’t fill your heart and soul with joy.
Hating yourself for not being “perfect” is just a waste of energy.
If you are more positive, your life will be more positive and more good will come to you.
It doesn’t matter how long it’s been, whether it’s been three years or three months, you will still love them and miss them. But most of all, you just hope they are happy and healthy.
I hope you fall in love with someone that dances with you, even if there is no music.
Call me crazy, but I swear, I can’t help but see the entirety of my childhood reflected in your face. When I look at you, I can’t help but feel a little homesick.
Sometimes it takes a little while to find what suits you.
I wish I had called. I wish I had kept in touch.
Thank you for keeping me from drifting away from myself, or drowning in anyone else’s expectations.
I’ve come to realize that healing from the death of a loved one is really just a matter of allowing all these emotions to pass through me rather than denying, running, and shutting them down.

What you don’t realize about these toxic relationships is that more often than not, they’re the people you deal with on a daily basis.
We must listen to what’s wrong, feel it, move through it, allow it just to be.
I want to let you go. I want to move on. I want to stop thinking about you constantly, but the thought of you clings to me like the smell of your cologne still lingers in the apartment.
Perfection means that any judgment we’ve made is entirely subjective and therefore imperfect. Between endless reworking in the pursuit of something better, you often never finish it.
When you’re arguing with your forever person, it can be frustrating, but it’s never scary. You never stop to wonder whether the disagreement is going to end your relationship because you know that’s not the case. You are confident the two of you can get through anything.
Reading can be a great form or meditation as we get lost in our imagination, and it can be very therapeutic with the right content.
What if you could take the road less traveled and be completely and utterly authentic and be true to your soul’s desire? You can. But it might be hard.
You don’t owe your FWB anything, so if you take a few hours to answer their texts, it’s not a big deal. If you’re too busy to hang out for a few weeks, it’s not a big deal.
A really good glass of red wine with your best pals.

If you begin seeing legitimate red flags, it is a sign that they are attempting to create space away from you, but the reason may not be what you think.
They will swear they will never repeat their mistakes. They will look you dead in the eyes and promise it will be different this time. They will make you believe their latest mistake has knocked sense into them. They will trick you into thinking they’ve learned, they’ve grown, they’ve become a better person.
You keep misplacing your phone and keys and glasses. You keep zoning out while other people are talking. You keep thinking you’ve seen something or heard something that isn’t there.
