These things take time love. These things take backbone. And they’ll tell you what you want to hear cause they think it’s better. But you better know how to point out the liars. You’ve got to weigh your wars. Make sure you’re not fighting for nothing.
-Meg & Dia
I can’t recognize myself lately, I’m someone I used to know. I think you took me with you, and I was hoping you could just leave me somewhere else. Because I’ve been waiting for myself, waiting for all the pieces to come home.
Say it’s over.
Say I’m dreaming.
Say I’m better than you left me. Say you’re sorry, I can take it.
Say you’ll wait, say you won’t.
Say you love me, say you don’t.
I can make my own mistakes.
Let it bend before it breaks.
“The marks humans leave are too too often scars.”
-Augustus Waters, The Fault in Our Stars
“I vow to perfectly love you in all your forms, now and forever. I promise to never forget that this is a once in a lifetime love. I vow to love you, and no matter what challenges might carry us apart, we will always find a way back to each other”.
Oh, I’m sorry. I forgot. I only exist when you need something.
You cannot travel back in time to fix your mistakes, but you can learn from them & forgive yourself for not knowing better.
You said you hate my suffering
And you understood
And you’d take care of me.
You’d always be there…
Well, where are you now?
I don’t want to be alone, I want to be left alone.
“You’re desperate in finding something else to please you. You’ve been searching your whole life. Something to mute, change, or just distract you. Something to put inside you to give the illusion of life. Because you’ve always been barely alive”.
-Jenny You’re Barely Alive, Rilo Kiley
“If you forget the way to go,
and lose where you came from.
If no one is standing beside you,
Be still and know I am”
When someone treats you like you’re just one of many options, help them narrow their choice by removing yourself from the equation. Sometimes you have to try not to care, no matter how much you do. Because sometimes you can mean almost nothing to someone who means so much to you. It’s not pride, it’s self-respect. Don’t expect to see positive changes in your life if you surround yourself with negative people. Don’t give part-time people a full-time position in your life. Know your value and what you have to offer, and never settle for less than what you deserve.
“So, it’s not gonna be easy.
It’s gonna be really hard.
We’re gonna have to work at this every day,
but I want to do that because I want you.
I want all of you.
