We’ll forget the times we fell in love over and over again, is that alright with you?
Time feels slow if you are waiting on something. But we do not have much of it. Why wouldn’t we want to race to good parts if we can get there faster?
I’m done hanging on to your words, done listening to the songs you send me through the periods we go without speaking, done ever believing you actually ever felt something for me.
Every time someone leaves I always think I’ll handle it a little more gracefully.
You can’t find yourself among those who made you feel lost, abandoned and misunderstood. You can’t revive your soul when you’re surrounded by those who wrecked it.
No matter who comes and goes there are some people who forever leave you empty and you don’t get over it.
You look back and you just feel stupid. You can’t forgive yourself for falling or believing all the lies. You reread every text. You relive every memory. And it all starts making sense — he never wanted love.
And everyone tries to say things like everything happens for a reason.
I am done holding on to things and people. I am done waiting. I am done hoping for something to happen. I am done hurting myself for expecting something more than what people can give me.
Thank you for leaving me shattered, because you made me fix my own self. Thank you for not loving me the same way, because I have to love myself instead.
