"She realized, when relationships failed to last, it was not because love was no longer present, but because people had stopped believing in themselves and in their partners."
― Christina Westover
"There’s no doubt about it: break ups suck. But in the first few hours, days, and weeks that follow, there is one important truth you need to recognize: some things can’t and shouldn’t be fixed, especially that loser who dumped you or forced you to dump him. It’s over for a reason & deep down inside, you probably know what that reason is. A lot of the pain you’re feeling is actually fear. Fear of things being different than how you like them. Fear of never finding love again. fear of being alone. Fear of having to fill your time differently. It’s ok, because we are all afraid of the unknown."
"Giving up doesn’t always mean you’re weak. Sometimes it means you are strong and smart enough to let go and move on."
"Falling for you
wasn’t by choice,
but I did anyway.
And I told myself
that it was
okay.
That loving you
even on my own
was okay.
So I gave you my heart
without expecting you
to give me yours back.
I loved you,
anyway.
I stayed for you,
anyway,
to watch
to appreciate
to give
and to show you
that there are people
that will do anything
it takes
to make you happy
to make you smile
to make sure,
that you are given
all you deserve
even if the person you grow
to love in the end,
is someone
whose name
is much different
from mine."

Q: What made you fall in love with Rosie?

Her eyes and how exciting she was. She’s the complete opposite of me, yet entirely the same. She’s everything I’ve wanted and ever will want, she’s funny and street smart, sexy and confident. She’s passionate and fiery and I love her devotion to 90s chick flicks. She always smells great and she’s captivating when you meet her :)

If you’ve met her you’d understand.

"Promise me something…. If things go south with us, you know, I don’t want them to, I hope they don’t, but if they do, don’t just walk out the door okay? Let’s promise to work at it."
