If you love something, and it’s just the beginning, don’t give up just because you have foresight that you might not work in the future.

I realized as I walked through the neighborhood how each house could contain a completely different reality. In a single block, the there could be fifty separate worlds. Nobody ever really knew what was going on just next door.
P. 146 of White Oleander by Janet Fitch



And if you did not cry ugly ugly science!feels tears then there is something wrong with you.

Sometimes you need to be a little selfish because kindness is seldom appreciated.

What I’ve Learned:
1. A girl can lose feelings for you over night.
2. A kiss can be just that, a kiss. Completely meaningless.
3. Love can be one sided but I still wonder if that is love at all
4. Never beg for someone to stay or to love you. You shouldn’t have to beg for someone to be a part of your life or to love you. You deserve better than that.
5. Stop breaking your ribs to make space for those who do not belong there.
6. Learning to breathe again is harder than the doctors said it would be.
7. I don’t know what hurts more at night; being alone or being in love.
8. Laying with someone in bed at night is temporary. It won’t get rid of the lonely. You will still wake up and leave in the morning with a heavy heart and no hand to hold.
9. Sometimes the sky rains gasoline instead of water and you have to be strong enough and ignore the urge to set yourself on fire.
10. I will be okay someday. Bad things happen for no reason sometimes and things end but that shouldn’t mean you should come to an end too. The ocean will always have waves; I just have to learn to swim through them for a bit longer.

Don’t let the mixed signals fool you. Indecision is a decision.
And God said “Love Your Enemy,” and I obeyed him and loved myself.
