You're not a terrible person for wanting to break up with someone you love. You don't need a reason to leave. Wanting to leave is enough. Leaving doesn't mean you're incapable of real love or that you'll never love anyone else again... It means you wish to change the terms of one particular relationship. That's all. Be brave enough to break your own heart.
So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need.
Those who love deeply never grow old; they may die of old age, but they die young.
Listening to him... I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. He taught me that if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good, either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be.
I was born when you kissed me. I died when you left me. I lived a few weeks while you loved me.
When you love someone that much and that person is away from you, sometimes it literally feels like you can't breathe, as if your body is aching for air. And then that person walks into the room, and all that ache inside of you, all that longing, dissolves and you feel yourself breathe again.
I laughed and said, Life is easy. What I meant was, Life is easy with you here, and when you leave, it will be hard again.
Someday, someone will walk into your life and make you realise why it never worked out with anyone else.
