Time and again, I see well-intentioned, compassionate, trusting, and forgiving people allow liars, cheats, and thieves back into their lives based on a simple “sorry” feigned with a touch of earnest remorse.
The grand finale of “us” was realizing that I was wrong about everything.
There’s a 20-year old who is proud of me, who is at peace knowing that I did what I set out to do, who is happy that I’ve found the courage to be who I truly am.
We can’t know what we truly need in order to be our happiest, in order to reach the highest level of our existence, because we’re not living at that level yet.
You can’t make someone love you when they have no love to give.
Yes, love can feel compelling, alluring, and even enchanting. But love should never feel like you’ve snorted cocaine.
True love is looking at someone in awe and admiration and love no matter what they do or who they are.
The truth is that we can have it all, and that’s terrifying.
