“I thought I knew you. But you proved me wrong. At the end of it all, the only one I can depend on is myself. I keep telling myself, maybe I shouldn’t ask for so much. But in reality, it really isn’t all that much. If you say you’re going to do something, follow through with it. Don’t leave me hanging because of some excuse. I don’t want to hear it. If you make a promise, keep it. If you know you can’t keep it, don’t make that promise. It’s as simple as that.” —
It's not that we aren't meant for each other, I think it's just maybe we aren't ready for forever.
The hardest part about walking away from someone is when you realize that no matter how slow you go, that someone will never run after you.
“You know that feeling when you’re just waiting, waiting to get home into your room, close the door, fall into bed, and just let out everything that you have kept in all day? Nothing is wrong, but nothing is right either, and you’re tired, tired of everything, tired of nothing, and you just want someone to be there and tell you it’s okay, but no one’s going to be there. And you know you have to be strong for yourself because no one can fix you. But you’re tired of waiting, tired of having to be the one to fix yourself and everyone else, tired of being strong, and for once, you just want it to be easy, to be simple, to be helped, to be saved, but you know you won’t be, but you’re still hoping and you’re still wishing and you’re still staying strong and fighting with tears in your eyes. You’re fighting.” —
I gave you the key to my heart but you misplaced it. And I kept making copies of the key because I wanted so badly to let you in.
“And maybe a happy ending doesn’t include a guy, maybe it is you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is just moving on. Or maybe it is just knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken hearts, through all the mis-read signals, pain and embarassment, you never gave up hope.” —
“You asked me why I couldn’t forgive you. It was because you were the love of my life, and you didn’t want to be. That’s hard to let go.” —Kristan Higgins
There's a lot I don't understand. But I do know it's important to keep fighting. I learnt that from you. We never win. Never will. That's not why we fight. We do it because there are things worth fighting for.
Being with all the girls in the world doesn't make you a man, but making one girl feel like she's the world, that does.
“It may seem like the hardest thing to do, but you have to forget the guy who forgot about you.” —Nicholas Sparks
“Don’t let go too soon. But don’t hang on too long.” —Mitch Albom, Tuesdays With Morrie
“I’m sorry if I’ve made your life more complicated. I’m sorry for a lot of things. But most of all I’m sorry I never got the chance to tell you that, no matter what happens next, I’ll never be anything but grateful for every moment I spent with you. Even though I keep fumbling for the right words, all I really wanted to say, was, thank you.” —In The Land of Women
“If someone wants to be part of your life, they’ll make an effort to be in it. Don’t bother reserving a space in your heart for someone who doesn’t make an effort to stay.” —
I think one of the worst feelings in the world is that empty feeling you get right after you spill your heart out and lay all your cards on the table. Right after you muster the courage to say all that you have been feeling and be completely and recklessly honest and he just walks away without saying a word. Because then you realize that you just lost. You just lost everything you didn't even know you had when you said "What do I have to lose?"
“Things just don’t work out sometimes. That’s one of the simplest explanations in life. You can dwell on why something that didn’t or shouldn’t have happened, but it did. So just move on. Most people want reasons why things are the way they are, but you are simply holding on to the past when what you really need to do is moving forward. When things don’t work out, find something that will.” —
Are you here because you need someone or because you need me?
When you finally realize you didn't matter to the person who care most about, you begin to wonder if you matter to anyone at all.
