Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret.
The way you make me feel is like smelling fresh grass or being in the back of a convertible under the stars. Or returning home from a long trip or just driving with no destination in the summer. It’s that feeling you get when you hear your family laugh together. It’s like when you’re outside on a hot summer day and you have a cold glass of water or when you talk to an old friend after a month or two, yet the two of you are still as close as ever. It’s like the feeling you get when you hear your favorite childhood song on the radio for the first time in years, you turn it up and feel so alive. Or lying in bed watching a snow storm, knowing you don’t have to get up for hours and just lay in the warmth of your comforters for hours. It’s the way your stomach flip flops during your first kiss, or how your body feel when you take off in an airplane for the first time. Or when you drive around in the front seat of a car that belongs to the boy you like and even though you should feel scared beyond control because he’s driving so fast and stupid, you feel save and alive. Yeah, that feeling. The way you make me feel, feels good to me.
Being comfortable is different from being happy.
Poetry, when the love and the lust and the liquor…fail.
Your soulmate is not someone that comes into your life peacefully. It is someone who comes to make you question things, who changes your reality, somebody that marks a before and after in your life. It is not the human being everyone has idealized, but an ordinary person, who manages to revolutionize your world in a second.
- Him: What have you learned?
- Her: I learned that sometimes, people have to leave even if you don't want them to because you need to learn something. That not everyone who leaves you behind are happy with their decision to walk out of your life. Some gets hurt just as much as those who were left behind; sometimes more. I also realized that being happy is not brought about by fate; it's a decision, a choice. You don't just start your day by hoping that it would turn out to be a great one -- you need to act on it. Another thing I've learned is that you need to fall in love with yourself first before you do with another person. You need to be able to clearly define your worth and set your limits so that you would know when to hold on and when to let go. Also, life throws at you all these painful and bitter circumstances not to drag you down to the pit of nowhere but to help you learn how to fight your own battles right; to make you strong; to unleash that steadfast will and determination within you; to teach you not to give up. Lastly, you don't really need to love the right person for there is no right or wrong when it comes to love. Loving someone of the same gender, who is already committed, or who doesn't seem to see you is never wrong. It's what you do about that love that usually complicates things. And oh, love doesn't have to be mutual to be considered true.
You can never teach a guy to love you the way you wanted to be loved. You have to wait for him to do it in his own way, in his own time, that’s the saddest part of being a girl. But you can never teach a girl to love the guy back the same way she did before if she already grew tired and fed up understanding and waiting to be appreciated and loved the way she deserves to be loved, that’s the saddest part of being an insensitive man.
