I just want to feel safe with someone...to not always be wondering how he feels about me, to not always be waiting for him to walk away, to not always be wishing he would love me back. I need to be able to trust that a man is there for me for the right reasons, because he cares enough to be there.
“Because you can never go from going out to being friends, just like that. It’s a lie. It’s just something that people say they’ll do to take the permanence out of a breakup. And someone always takes it to mean more than it does, and then is hurt even more when, inevitably, said ‘friendly’ relationship is still a major step down from the previous relationship, and it’s like breaking up all over again. But messier.”—This Lullaby, Sarah Dessen (via heysilly) (via flyaway-x3)
“All I want to do tonight, is curl up in a blanket on the couch, with you, and watch old movies, fall asleep with my head on your chest, your arms around me, listening to your heart as it beats me out a lullaby.”—(via staree)
I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right... and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
“All our young lives we search for someone to love. Someone who makes us complete. We choose partners and change partners. We dance to a song of heartbreak and hope. All the while wondering if somewhere, somehow, there’s someone perfect who might be searching for us.”—The Wonder Years (via littlemiss) (via avajean) (via lovebot)
“I felt like – like I don’t know what. Like this wasn’t real. Like I was in some Goth version of a bad sitcom. Instead of being the A/V dweeb about to ask the head cheerleader to the prom, I was the finished-second-place werewolf about to ask the vampire’s wife to shack up and procreate. Nice.”— Jacob Black (Breaking Dawn p.185)hahaha he’s funny :)(via beyondbeautiful)(via kellykunzz)
“We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success. We often discover what will do by finding out what will not do; and probably he who never made a mistake never made a discovery.”—Samuel Smiles (via nihilnoetia)
“What is family? They were the people who claimed you. In good, in bad, in parts or in whole, they were the ones who showed up, who stayed in there, regardless. It wasn’t just about blood relations or shared chromosomes, but something wider, bigger. We had many families over time. Our family of origin, the family we created, and the groups you moved through while all of this was happening: friends, lovers, sometimes even strangers. None of them perfect, and we couldn’t expect them to be. You can’t make any one person your world. The trick was to take what each could give you and build your world from it.”—Sarah Dessen (via kari-shma)
“A man who wants to make a relationship work will move mountains to
keep the woman he loves. If he’s not calling you to tell you
he loves you and wants you back, it should only be because
he’s showing up at your new residence to do it in person…
If he’s not doing any of that, he may love you,
he may miss you, but ultimately he’s just not that into you.
Stop taking his calls and let him know what it’s like to live without you.”—He’s Just Not That Into You (via clicheharmony) (via laughliketheresnotomorrow) (via betweensheetsandsparks)
“make time each day to pray, to smile, to hug, to laugh, to catch someone’s tears, to say thank you, to accept thanks from someone else. keep making a difference. stay safe, keep the faith & spread it aswell! :)”—Ray Mooney (via ahcherrycherryboomboom)
“I always told myself if we didn’t work out I would be ok. I would not let it ruin my attitude towards love, and I would not let him take away my sweetness. Well, I told myself all of that, but here I am, a year later, and I am a total mess. and he is to blame. he talks to me like we are fine, like it’s nothing. he has no idea that he broke me. he changed who i was; who i am.”—(via words-left-unsaid)
I am single. I’m not desperate. I think there is a fine line between the two. I don’t like being single and I am ready for a long term relationship but I refuse to settle for less than I deserve to get that. I’ve been there and it’s not worth it.
Being with someone for the sake of being with someone lacks dignity and self-respect. When I meet the right guy, I’ll know.
“‘FEARLESS’ is not the absense of fear. It’s not being completely unafraid. To me, FEARLESS is having fears. FEARLESS is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, FEARLESS is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. FEARLESS is falling madly in love again, even though you’ve been hurt before. FEARLESS is walking into your freshmen year of high school at fifteen. FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what you want all over again… even though every time you’ve tried before, you’ve lost. It’s FEARLESS to have faith that someday things will change. FEARLESS is having the courage to say goodbye to someone who only hurts you, even if you can’t breathe without them. I think it’s FEARLESS to fall for your best friend, even though he’s in love with someone else. And when someone apologizes to you enough times for the things they’ll never stop doing, I think it’s FEARLESS to stop believing them. It’s FEARLESS to say “you’re NOT sorry,” and walk away. I think loving someone despite what people think is FEARLESS. I think allowing yourselfto cry on the bathroom floor is FEARLESS. Letting go is FEARLESS. Then, moving on and being alright, that’s FEARLESS too. But no matter what love throws at you, you have to believe in it. You have to believe in love stories and prince charmings and happily ever after. That’s why I write these songs. Because I think love is FEARLESS.” — Taylor Swift
