“People can’t seem to get it through their heads that there is never any healing or closure. Ever. There is only a short pause before the next “horrifying” event. People forget there is such a thing as memory, and that when a wound “heals” it leaves a permanent scar that never goes away, but merely fades a little. What really ought to be said after one of these so-called tragedies is, ‘Let the scarring begin.”—George Carlin
“There are certain people who come into your life, and leave a mark… Their place in your heart is tender; a bruise of longing, a pulse of unfinished business. Just hearing their names pushes and pulls at you in a hundred ways, and when you try to define those hundred ways, describe them even to yourself, words are useless.”—Sara Zarr, Sweethearts
Do you believe in destiny/fate? Some things are meant to be, some things can't be changed into an other direction, .. Or do you believe everyone has a choice, and that our choices do influence, or determine, our feelings at moment and eventually our life in general?
I’ve talked about this a couple of times with the people around me and I personally believe in both.. depending on the situation I guess. Fate does play a part, especially in meeting people. But of course, our choices in life can perhaps also determine if two people will get together. And I also believe that ultimately, a plan has already been made for us. I’m not sure if that’s contradictory but it’s something that I’ve not quite figured out myself. Haha hope that helps though!

Hi Mark, you’re very welcome, and thank you for your kind words! Have a blessed december :)
I save all my pictures in bulk and I don’t post them on the same day so it’s difficult for me to credit them all the time. I’ve stated before that none of them are my pictures though, so if I happened to have posted a picture of yours without crediting, let me know, I’ll do it pronto. Will try my best to credit all the pictures, starting from now!
Did you manage to move on from your ex then? It's too hard. He was my best friend, literally, I told him everything and I guess I was too naive to believe we would ever have a problem with communicating.
Thankfully I did. All it took was time, and the love and support from my friends. That really helped, at least in my case it did. And I don’t think you should blame yourself for being naive because we are often oblivious to many things till the other party opens up. Then it feels like a sledgehammer hit us. Have you tried talking to him yet?
“Change is a funny thing. We never are quite sure what we are becoming or even why. Then one day we look at ourselves and wonder who we are and how we got that way. Only one thing about change remains constant… it is always painful.”—Jodi Picoult
