Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
You almost convinced me you were gonna stick around. But everybody knows, almost doesn’t count.
Have you ever thought that if one thing hadn’t happened, a whole set of things never would have either? Like dominoes in time, a single event kicked off an unstoppable series of changes that gained momentum and spun out of control, and nothing was ever the same again. Don’t ever doubt that a mere second can change your life forever.
It’s funny how you can be face to face with someone, and yet it feels as though you’re on the other side of the world from them. They haven’t actually gone anywhere, but they might as well have. It’s one of the worst feelings to become acquainted with: to miss someone who’s literally right there.
The thing about us girls is that we tend to take our anger out on the new girlfriend rather than the old boyfriend. It’s like, even if its been months and she doesn’t even know who you are, we think she planned it all long to ruin our relationship.
We were in love once, weren’t we? I used to know his every move, but now it’s all a blur. A visage of grass, old t-shirts, & brown eyes. How come I do this to myself? How come I couldn’t just stay in love with him?
I know a lot of people know who he is, but I also know there are not that many who got to see the side of the guy that I did. And that guy, well, I’ll never forget him. Not ever. I’ve learned so much about life and emotion from knowing him and I wouldn’t change a thing about it. Including the ending. Your heart needs to go through some bumps like these once in a while. Besides, he has made a monumental impact on me and on my life in these past few years. I know no matter how many years go by, my stomach will always do a little flip whenever I see that face.
Sometimes you just have to give up, and that’s okay. It’s alright to realize that you can’t save everything and everyone.
If he doesn’t chase you after you walk away, keep walking.
