“People come and go - they’ll drift in and out of your life, almost like characters in your favorite book. When you finally close the cover, the characters have told their story and you start up again with another book, complete with new characters and adventures. Then you find yourself focusing on the new ones, not the ones from the past.”—Nicholas Sparks, The Rescue (via runawaytrain)
Because you have to prove it to them. How can they be sure how you’re feeling when you don’t show it to them. It takes effort to be in love. Love isn’t just about the i love yous, the chocolates, the flowers. It’s about the feeling inside that you built.
I’m the girl who prefers one rose instead of a dozen. I’m the girl who would rather stay in on a friday night than go to a wild party with random strangers. I’m the girl who wouldn’t make you wait on her hand and foot, but would do anything to make you happy. I’m the girl who would enjoy having a movie night rather than going to some fancy restaurant. I’m the girl who would rather stay up all night sharing secrets than going out and getting drunk. I’m the girl who won’t make you hold her bags, but would rather hold your hand instead. I’m the girl who will love you more than anyone can possibly dream of. I’m the girl who would give the world to see you smile.
“I sometimes think that people’s hearts are like deep wells. Nobody knows what’s at the bottom. All you can do is imagine by what comes floating to the surface every once in a while.”—Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman; 村上 春樹 (via jeomin)
I'm weird with relationships. I think I know what I want but I end up pushing everyone away. I think I run because i'm scared; I'm scared that I might get hurt or maybe I just haven't found someone who I know is worth being hurt for.
