If someone walks out of your life, use all of your strength to not miss them. They don’t deserve it. They don’t deserve your heart. It’s hard to accept, but they were not perfect for you. The perfect person for you will adore you so much that they couldn’t bear to live a single day without you. Don’t ever let that person back in. The right person for you will recognize what they have right off the bat. It shouldn’t take your absence for someone to realize they need your presence.
“What did thinking ever do for me, to what great place did thinking ever bring me? I think and think and think. I’ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it.”—Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (via 24ribs)
“When people walk away from you, let them go. You shouldn’t have to talk them into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, and coming to see you, because if they really cared about you in the first place; they would not be going anywhere.”—Unknown (via 24ribs)
“Don’t attach yourself to anyone who shows you the least bit of attention because you’re lonely. Loneliness is the human condition. No one is ever going to fill that space. The best you can do is know yourself… know what you want.”—White Oleander (via 24ribs)
