Our generation has become so ignorant to love that we have created it to be disposable. One thing goes wrong, one thing happens and someone leaves. They’re just gone. No matter what they feel for you or how many times they told you they love you, it’s so easy for everyone these days to just leave and push aside their feelings. Love is such a sacred, beautiful thing. In my opinion at least, it’s the most sacred thing you can possess in the world and the most pure emotion you will ever feel, without any logic for it. But people are so terrified of getting hurt. They refuse to allow themselves to become vulnerable to another person and to let their walls down that everyone just runs away from it. The second things aren’t like a fairy tale or the second they begin to feel any kind of pain they can’t handle it and they leave. Love is not a fairy tale ever; you have to work for it. You have to keep it alive. You have to compromise. You will never be in a relationship that contains no rough patch or down period. They all do because we’re people and shit happens. You should work through it. You have to work and push through in order to become stronger. All the good is worth all the bad, and all the bad is worth the good. People can sit and say all they want that they don’t deserve you, you’re too good for them, or vice versa. But when it comes down to it, we’re all human. We all deserve each other, we all deserve happiness, and we all deserve love. Yes, love is one of the scariest feelings to have and to put yourself in that position. But people need to realize that it’s also the most pure, beautiful, whimsical feeling that you can ever hold in your heart. It is the most wonderful thing the world has to offer. Vulnerability is even one of the most amazing feelings when you are in love; it’s also so beautiful. You should fight for love if you’re in it, not run away from it. It’s just so sad how easy it is for people to throw away…
I miss my best friend.
I can’t believe you’re gone. I literally can’t believe it… I know the vulnerability is still there, you’re just too scared of it and too scared of feeling anything. You’re lying to yourself, but one day you’ll realize the truth and, hopefully, you will be your beautiful self again rather than this shitty new person you’ve become; so closed off from the beauty in life and so closed off from the beauty in you. And when or if that day comes, if it ever does, I will be there because I know YOU, and right now you’re just lost. The hardest parts are seeing you morph into the type of person you used to hate and losing my best friend. But I can’t sit around. It sucks, but I have to move forward and just hope you’ll be your beautiful self again.
You make me out to be a crazy ex girlfriend, but really you’re the one causing shit and lying. Way to be mature.I could care less if you want to be with someone else, but don’t lie and cut me out of your life. We were best friends for eight months, and now I don’t even exist to you. You’re the crazy one.
“I hope you’re doing well. I miss you terribly.
As soon as you call me I’m taking you to Szechuan and we’re going to get fat and happy and then get Pom and go to the heli pad and go up the stairs to the sketchy bathroom and then end the night in my jacuzzi.”
Bullshit. You’re a fucking liar.
