not everything is supposed to become something beautiful + long-lasting. sometimes people come into your life to show you what is right + what is wrong, to show you who you can be, to teach you to love yourself, to make you feel better for a little while, or to just be someone to walk with at night + spill your lift to. not everyone is going to stay forever, + we will have to keep on going + thank them for what they've given us.
"I will miss you always, even in the moments when you are right beside me. Time apart has planted longing inside me and I do not think it is a weed that will ever stop growing. It will always live there, but my god it grows the most spectacular flowers." - Tyler Knott Gregson
Perfect analogy of my ex Corey Newman-Love. Now on to a productive, happy, friend filled day. Was told this morning I am smiling, laughing, relaxed and looking beautiful by 2 separate people. I guess the bruise has gone away!
And today I realized that I am the biggest hypocrite of them all. I tell everyone to keep holding on, that there is light at the end. That everything gets better as long as you continue to wait. I always tell people to have hope. That they need to keep trying because it is too early to give up, that they have so much to live for. Then there is me, and I am barely holding on.
