You just have to grin and bear it. Sometimes the only escape route is to go straight through the flames, just brace yourself and bite your lip. Sometimes you have to sever the ties clean off. Because in every relationship, there comes a point when the damage is too much & no matter how good it once was, the memories can't sustain you. You have to save yourself knowing all the while it will hurt like hell. Because you can't keep giving someone everything if you get nothing in return.
You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could've, should've, would've, happened. Or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move the fuck on.
If you have fear of some pain or suffering, you should examine whether there is anything you can do about it. If you can, there is no need to worry about it; if you cannot do anything, then also there is no need to worry.
If you don't feel that you are possibly on the edge of humiliating yourself, of losing control of the whole thing, then probably what you are doing isn't very vital.
If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
If you're lost, you can look and you will find me.
Smell her hair. Talk to her in movie theaters. Hold her hand while you talk. Tell her she's beautiful. Look her in the eyes when you talk to her. Tell her stupid jokes. Let her play with your hair. Just walk around with her. Look at her like she's the only girl you see. Tickle her, even if she say's stop. When she starts swearing at you, tell her you love her. Let her fall asleep in your arms. Get her mad, then kiss her. Give her piggyback rides. Tease her. Let her tease you back. Kiss her forehead. When she's sad, hang out with her. Let her take all the photos of you she wants. Kiss her in the rain. When you fall in love with her, tell her.
During the 1960s, I think, people forgot what emotions were supposed to be. And I don't think they've ever remembered.
— Andy Warhol
Cynicism makes us feel wise, but in fact it often makes us stupid.
Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.
I just want to find someone to get excited about.
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
— Martin Luther King, Jr.
We sometimes encounter people, even perfect strangers, who begin to interest us at first sight, somehow suddenly, all at once, before a word has been spoken.
