Maybe what they say is true. There are those people you encounter in life whom you never really get over. Even if you meet others who treat you better and love you more, there is always that person you can’t quite completely forget at the back of your mind.
more often than not, i fall in love with the possibility — the possibility of you catching my gaze, the possibility of accidentally bumping into each other, the possibility of feeling electricity the moment our skin touches, the possibility of you asking what my name is, the possibility of you…
Some people are easy to get over; they only take a week or two. But sooner or later, you'll find the one, the one who has changed so much of your life, and no matter how hard you try, you can't find the words to say goodbye.
“Sometimes I think the human heart is just a simple shelf. There’s only so much you can pile onto it before something falls off an edge and you are left to pick up the pieces.”—Jodi Picoult, House Rules
“Love is not an equation, it is not a contract, and it is not a happy ending. Love is the slate under the chalk, the ground that buildings rise, and the oxygen in the air. It is the place you come back to, no matter where you’re headed.”—Jodi Picoult
“Love is fragile and we’re not always its best caretakers. Even the best of us make mistakes; we just muddle through and do the best we can to hope this fragile thing will survive by all odds.”—Nicholas Sparks, The Last Song
“I want you to know that I still believe in the gift of love. I want you to believe in it too. You deserve that in your life, for nothing is more fulfilling than love itself.”—Nicholas Sparks, The Last Song
Sometimes, people really do feel like they don't want to exist, like they want to curl up in a ball and hide from everyone else. They feel like life is caving in on them and they want to just go somewhere else and not feel anything at all. And I don't think there's anything wrong with that. And if you don't know how it feels to feel this way, then you have no place to judge anyone who does.
“I love you. I know the other night didn’t mean for you what it did for me. But I don’t regret it and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since it happened. Not just because it was great, which it was. But because it was right. It was so right and you may not see that right now but I do. And if I have to wait until we’re both 80 years old for you to see it then I’ll wait. I’m not going anywhere. This is it for me. You’re it for me. I can’t pretend to feel any less for you than I do. I’m sorry. I just can’t.”—Gilmore Girls
“The greatest irony of life is loving the right person at the wrong time, having the wrong person when the time is right and finding out you love someone after that person walks out from your life and sometimes you think you’re already over a person but when you see them smile at you, you’ll suddenly realize that you’re just pretending to be over them just to ease the pain of knowing that they will never be yours again. For some, they think that letting go is one way of expressing how much you love the person. Most relationships tend to fail not because the absence of love; love is always present. It’s just the one was being loved too much and the other was being loved too little as we all know that the heart is the center of the body but it beats on the left. Maybe that’s the reason why the heart is not always right. Most often we fall in love with the person we think we love only to discover that for them, we are just for past times, while the one who truly loves us remains either a friend or a stranger. Here’s a piece of advice: let go when you’re hurting too much, give up when love isn’t enough and move on when things are not like before. There is someone out there who will love you even more, surely then, you will know true love.”—
“I think everyone at some point goes through that one moment where they think “Oh my God, I can’t do this”. But you know what? You can. No matter how close you are to the edge, no matter how badly you feel like giving up, or think it’s best to do so rather than have to put up with the pain - don’t. Don’t lose hope that things will get better. Don’t give up, because there is someone out there who will make you smile in a way no one else ever could. Keep that glimmer of hope alive in your heart, because someone is out there searching for you, for your smile. So wipe your tears and hang on tight.”—
Forgive and forget, that's what they all say. Its undoubtedly good advice, but not very practical. When someone hurts us, its like an automatic mechanism - we usually want to hurt them back. When someone wrongs us, we want to straighten things right. But without forgiveness, wounds will never heal. I guess the most we can hope for is that one day, we'll be lucky enough to forget.
“The truth is we don’t know what tomorrow’s going to bring and the only thing we really have is right now. So don’t stay mad for too long. Learn to forgive. Love with all your heart. Stay up all night. Have fun. Live your life the way you want to live it. Don’t worry about people who don’t like you. Cherish and appreciate the ones who do. Just breathe, and live life the way you want and you’ll be happy with and don’t let anyone tell you you’re doing it wrong.”—
Hey runawaytrain! Someone on our team has been familiar with your posts for awhile, and when we were thinking of people to appreciate, they suggested you. I read and browsed through your posts and was deeply impressed. There was so much to relate to. So much to think about. Your tumblelog offers everyone and anyone who reads it a little insight of what life is really all about. We hope you get the recognition you most definitely deserve. We mean it.
This is such a pleasant surprise and I’m extremely flattered :) Thank you so much! You guys just made my day <3
“Whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it because you can’t know. You can’t ever really know the meaning of your life. And you don’t need to. Just know that your life has a meaning… Every life has a meaning, whether it lasts one hundred years or one hundred seconds. Every life… And every death… changes the world in its own way. Ghandi knew this. He knew his life would mean something to someone, somewhere, somehow. And he knew with as much certainty that he could never know that meaning. He understood that enjoying life should be of much greater concern then understanding it. And so do I. You can’t know. So don’t take it for granted, but don’t take it too seriously.Don’t postpone what you want. Don’t leave anything misunderstood. Make sure the people you care about know. Make sure they know how you really feel, because just like that… it could end.”—Remember Me
When you meet the other half of your soul, you will understand why all the other lovers let you go. When you meet the one who deserves your heart, you'll understand why things didn't work out with everyone else.
Its going to be painful to say goodbye to someone that you don't want to let go of, but its gonna hurt even more to ask someone to stay if you can never make the relationship work out the way it should.
