“What if she was meant to be, or could have been someone important in my life? I think that’s what scares me: the randomness of everything. That the people who could be important to you might just pass you by. Or you pass them by. How do you know… I felt that by walking away I was abandoning them, that I spent my entire life, day after day, abandoning people.”—Peter Cameron
“That’s the thing about letting old lovers go. You don’t stop loving some of them. There are a couple you love no less than you ever did. Not to mention names.. but I’m still in love with a couple. You’re not going to try and make it work again, but if they needed you, you’d drop everything.”—Tori Amos
Sometimes it's hard to believe that the few people around me, they do not understand how I feel, or see me for who I am, or if they could, they didn't care enough to do anything about it. Or if they cared enough, they didn't believe there was anything they could have done. That belief of theirs would have made all the difference.
what's your favorite book? can you recommend me a good book that are sad and can make you cry? like loving someone and being heartbroken kinda book.. to love and not being loved back.. etc. i'm in that state right now and can't put my feelings into words, so i want to know if there are books that can 'speak' for me. novels about romance - being loved and being in love really are not something i feel like reading because i can no longer relate to happy things.. thanks! fyi, i love your blog so much.
I have a couple of favourites - Something blue and Something borrowed by Emily Giffin, The love verb by Jane Green and The trouble with marriage by Debby Holt. These are the few that I can think of at the top of my head now. They made me cry and laugh and when I finished the last page of each book, I was sad I did. Hope you’ll like them as much as I do :)
i need your advice.
A few weeks ago or maybe, last month, i told you a really sad story about my life. lol. About my bestfriend liking our other friend and i liked my bestfriend and tht other friend liked my bestfriend.
Well, guess what? They are together now )': What am i suppose to do? I still have feelings for my bestfriend. I told her. But she said things like "well bb, it sucks to love someone who love someone else. Don't worry, i've been there. You'll get over me soon." Well, i'm still not over her! And them being together is not th worst part, the worst part is, i usually hang with the 2 of em' and another girl that i'm not very close to. But now that they are together, they keep talking to each other. They hold hands. And they lie on each others shoulder and i'm left with making coversations with th other girl i'm not close too. And i'm feeling very jealous. I don't know what to do. I really don't. I don't want to stop hangin with my bestfriend just because of this. And i want to stop feeling jealous. I want, i need to get over her. But i just fucking can't. Time will solve everything? i hope so. )':
I feel that as time passes by, you’ll meet new people and gradually your feelings for her will fade. But of course, she’ll always have a special place in your heart. I think you should stay away from the both of them for now, give yourself some space and time to get over her. It’d be easier for you that way. Hope this helps :)
The girl that I like reblogs stuff from you a lot; I see it on her blog.
And there's a chance she might see this, should you publish it and all. But I'll take the chance anyway. At the same time, I thank you for all your posts on Tumblr. Reading every one of these posts helps me to relate to them in one way or another. While some remind me of lost loves, most of them speak to me and remind me of this girl that I like.
The girl that I like; she's a really wonderful person. She makes me feel like anything's possible, and she makes me insanely happy. She makes me comfortable being me. Even if I end up doing stupid things like making actions and lip-syncing to songs that we know. Her smile, wow. Like sunshine is how I'd describe it. I confessed to her, telling her how I felt. But up till today, I don't know how she feels about me. I don't know if she thinks about me the way I think about her.
Thing is, I know I will have to wait for her. She has a lot of wonderful years ahead for her. And meanwhile, I face the reality of being away for two years from her while I'm in the army. It kind of hurts to miss someone you know you can't have right now. But I guess good things are worth the wait.
Test of patience? Probably. But then love isn't based purely on feelings alone. Looking at the bigger picture, love is a decision. You choose to love someone no matter how crappy you feel, no matter how anxious or scared you might be. You love that person for who he or she is.
This girl, she's wonderful. You might read this, you might not.
I just want to let you know that I'll be waiting for you.
You are too sweet. I really hope that when she sees this, she’ll know who you are and how you feel towards her :)
“There are people in life who give me comfort. When the going gets tough, as it invariably does, I can count on them for a shoulder to cry on. They will lift me up when I fall, they will hold me in their arms as I cry and tell me, “Everything’s going to be okay.” I am so thankful for those people. They are priceless.”—Dawson’s Creek
Don't believe it when someone promises you that they will never hurt you because at some point or another, it'll happen. The real promise is when the moments you spend together makes the pain worth it.
Suddenly, all I can think about are the things I don't know about him. The things I never had time to learn. I don't know if his feet are ticklish or what his favourite movies are. I don't know if he gazes up at the sky and marvel at the stars like I do, or what shapes he sees in the clouds. I don't know his fears, or what memories he hold closest to his heart.
is established by a good friend of mine and it is a place where you can share your thoughts and fears and troubles. The essence of this site is like a virtual listening ear, and she’ll do the best she can, to offer words of advice and hope, to cheer you up if you feel like there’s no one else you can talk to. Hope this helps for anyone who is seeking an outlet to rant, to share :>
“The vow is simple, really. Those who take it promise to stay together for better or for worse. For richer or for poorer. In sickness and in health. To honor and to cherish. Forsaking all others. Until death do us part. Yes, the vow is simple. Finding someone worthy of such a promise is the hard part. But if we can, that’s when we begin to live happily ever after.”—Desperate Housewives
“I wanna marry you because you’re the first person I wanna look at when I wake up in the morning, and the only one I wanna kiss goodnight. Because the first time when I saw these hands, I couldn’t imagine not being able to hold them. But mainly, when you love someone as much as I love you, getting married is the only thing left to do. So, will you, um, marry me?”—Definitely, Maybe
“When we hold each other, in the darkness, it doesn’t make the darkness go away. The bad things are still out there. The nightmares still walking. When we hold each other we feel not safe, but better. “It’s all right” we whisper, “I’m here, I love you.” and we lie: “I’ll never leave you.” For just a moment or two the darkness doesn’t seem so bad.”—Neil Gaiman, Midnight Days
“I think if you like somebody you have to tell them. It might be embarrassing to say it, but you will never regret stepping up. I know from personal experience, however, that you should not keep telling a girl that you like her after she tells you she isn’t into it. You should not keep riding your bike by her house either.”—Donald Miller
“And when someone apologizes to you enough times for the things they’ll never stop doing, I think it’s fearless to stop believing them. It’s fearless to say “you’re not sorry,” and walk away.”—Taylor Swift
“I think life should be about touching the lives of people around us. Making a difference. Accepting people for who they are, going out of our way to help others, and loving with all that we’ve got. Sometimes all it takes is one simple gesture, and we can put a smile on someone’s face and make them feel less alone. That is what we should live for, because when we’re gone from this world, we can’t take anything with us. All that’s left are the people whose lives you touched, and the difference you’ve made while you were here. So make this life count, because you don’t get a second chance.”—
“I don’t know if people are meant to be together. You have to have a lot in common, choose well and be really fortunate. It’s not like you’re sprinkled with fairy dust. You have to believe that love will be there when you need it.”—Claire Danes
I just want you to know that I have been here all along, just waiting. Waiting for you to notice me, waiting for you to care. Waiting for you to say that you have been waiting too, waiting for you to say that you feel the same way as I do.
Someone once told me, "You can do better. You deserve much more." And truth be told, the person is right. But usually when we love, we love someone for who they are despite what they have done. It's not so much about who we deserve, but who we want, who we need and who we love. That's how love is.
