“Sometimes it seems the harder you try to hold onto something or someone the more it wants to get away. You feel like some kind of criminal for having felt, for having wanted. For having wanted to be wanted. It confuses you because you think that your feelings were wrong and it makes you feel so small because it’s so hard to keep it inside when you let it out, and it doesn’t come back. You’re left so alone that you can’t explain.”—(via eletheowl)
“But sometimes we’re so focused on finding our happy ending we don’t learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don’t, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn’t include a guy, maybe.. it’s you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is just moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope.”—(via eletheowl)
“No matter how long it takes, it will get better. No matter how many tears fall there will always be a time when your eyes stop crying and your eyes start shining again. Just know that everything will be all right no matter what you, he or she thinks. Because life is nothing but a big elastic band. Stretched to one end, it will always bounce back to the beginning, in the end.”—(via eletheowl)
“I’ll say my goodbye, and you’ll walk away in the way that you do. Then we’ll both pretend that nothing happened and we never knew each other. Because that’s what happens. You find people, and then you lose them. Nothing lasts forever, contrary to popular belief. And it’s those goodbyes, the ones you’d never thought you had to say; it’s those that hurt the most.”—(via eletheowl)
Most of the time, the words are at the tip of my tongue, so ready to jump out and meet other words. But I repress the urge to say what I feel and the words remain in my tongue or worse, I swallow them and they remain, forgotten.
“People can change. They just don’t because it’s easier not to. We’re always waiting for our lives to begin, like figuring we’ll be someone else someday. But what are we waiting for? All we have is now. Don’t run from this.”—One Tree Hill (via quotewhore)
“Let go of the things that can no longer be fixed. If you force to try to put them back, things will only get worse. Holding on is being brave, but sometimes moving on makes you even tougher.”—(via eletheowl)
For everything.. I just wish you could be just a little bit more understanding though.. =( .. just i wish you would actually take what i say in consideration rather than just following what you want and doing and telling me what you want..
“It’s like all the bad stuff that you went through, that you hated along the way, the people who disappointed you and the things that didn’t go the way you wanted, suddenly you feel grateful for them, because those are the things that got you here, to this.”—(via eletheowl)
“We talk like we know what’s going on but we don’t. We don’t know anything, we’re young and we’re gonna screw up a lot. We’re gonna keep changing our minds, and sometimes our hearts. And through all of that, the only real thing we can offer each other is forgiveness.”—Dawson’s Creek (via eletheowl)
“We take a risk when we open our hearts because the truth is, if we open our hearts, we will get hurt. You can’t open your heart and not have some hurt because you’re in a human experience. Even if it’s the love of your life and you have many wonderful, deepening, growing, powerful years together, it’s a human experience and that person will pass over. Love takes courage. Be courageous.”—Mary Manin Morrissey
