The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them.
To lose balance sometimes for love is part of living a balanced life.
You know how they say you only hurt the ones you love? Well, it works both ways.
Love and loss,” he said, “are like a ship and the sea. They rise together. The more we love, the more we have to lose. But the only way to avoid loss is to avoid love. And what a sad world that would be.
Love yourself for everything you are.
She’s broken enough to look back.
One smile and my heart beats.
I’m tired and I’m missing you.
Feeling everything deeply is not easy.
Afraid that I’ll miss you forever.
Words hurt more than we admit.
Someday I’ll wake up beside you.
He did not love her enough.
Miss having you here beside me.
He knows she won’t forgive him.
There’s a story behind her smile.
just once when
you left me all
We only have each other now.
something in me
that just can’t let
She vowed to never love again.
look like it
but it’s killing me
Everything she’s done was for him.
She has done enough for him.
She never really wanted someone else.
get it, it’s
not easy letting people
just how unfair

deserve and you’ll be
Loving you a bit more everyday.
Letting go doesn’t mean that you don’t care about someone anymore. It’s just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself.
Try to understand men. If you understand each other you will be kind to each other. Knowing a man well never leads to hate and almost always leads to love.
He meant so much. She didn’t.
having feelings for
someone you can’t be
Needed you more than I thought.
I really should have never cared.
There are all kinds of love in the world, but never the same love twice.
~F. Scott Fitzgerald

I can’t fall all over again.
She’s got nothing left to give.
We can always start again. Always.
my own pace,

A heart like yours is rare.
Feelings come and feelings go. There is no need to fear them and no need to crave them. Be open to your feelings and experience them while they are here. Then be open to the feelings that will come next. Your feelings are a part of your experience. Yet no mere feeling, however intense it may seem, is your permanent reality.
No longer holding on to anything.
Happy seeing love works in others.
Rereading old conversations makes me smile.
The best relationships in our lives are the best not because they have been the happiest ones, they are that way because they have stayed strong through the most tormentful of storms.
