I’m not weird, I’m just unique!
There are two kinds of evil people. People who do evil stuff, and people who see evil stuff being done and don’t try to stop it.
Calling somebody else fat won’t make you skinnier. Calling someone stupid doesn’t make you any smarter.
If she’s going through her worse right now, I want to go through it with her. She makes me happier than anything I’ve ever known, and if I can have a part in making her happy again that’s all I want to do. That’s all I want to do for the rest of my life.
Friends are the family we choose.
Oh, screw beautiful, I’m brilliant! If you want to appease me, compliment my brain.
There’s a reason I said I’d be happy alone. It wasn’t because I thought I would be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It’s easier to be alone. Because what if you learn that you need love? And then you don’t have it. What if you like it? And then lean on it? What if you shape your life around it? And then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It’s like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
It doesn’t matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, changes our lives. Trauma messes everybody up. But, maybe, that’s the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through that is what keeps us moving forward. It’s what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up before we can step up.
But the thing is, it’s hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely, because almost everyone has that smallest bit of faith and hope that one day they would open their eyes and it would all come true. At the end of the day, faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don’t really expect it. It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale is slightly different than your dream. The castle, well it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important that it’s happily ever after— just that it’s happy right now. See, once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you. And once in a while, people may even take your breath away.
You deserve to be with somebody who makes you happy. Somebody who doesn’t complicate your life. Somebody who won’t hurt you.
Sometimes the things we complain most about are the things we care most about. Unfortunately, we don’t always know that until it’s too late.
