“Haven’t you ever known someone rejected by a lover, who, consumed by rage and jealousy, never lets go? They look on from a distance, unseen but boiling inside. The emotion never seems to tire, this hatred mixed with intense obsession, even with a kind of twisted love.”—Scott Westerfeld (via tantum)
“When you are in a relationship with someone, you share yourself. You open up and give them a little piece of you. They were meant to have that piece, as you were meant to accept a piece of them. A lot of times, problems arise and two people don’t end up working out. A lot of time, the two don’t communicate anymore. I believe that when we end a relationship with someone, we can never be as close to them as we were before. Part of you is broken. Part of them is broken. And that’s okay, because they were there for the parts of your life that they needed to be.”—Jenna Kroff
I feel like I have to constantly explain why I feel the way I feel. I’m scared to be open and honest because I fear that somebody will find a way to take the happiness away.
I hate living in fear, walking on eggshells so that other people can feel “comfortable” with my situation in life. I’m not here to make you comfortable. It’s my life to do what I think is right for me, to follow my intuitions, to follow my heart, and to not ignore the overwhelming feeling inside that I am where I am supposed to be.
I just want someone to be happy for me. Anyone. Or if anything, at least act like you want me to be happy. Because I am tired.
