Blessed are those who do not fear solitude, who are not afraid of their own company, who are not always desperately looking for something to do, something to amuse themselves with, something to judge.
Those who are happy are not without pain, they just know how not to be controlled by it.
Love and Other Drugs, 2010
You know it only breaks my heart to see you standing in the dark. Waiting there for me to come back.
Stop waiting on people to complete you, complete yourself.
Maybe I love too much and maybe I show it too little.
Come on lay down these arms, all our best defenses. We’re taking our chances here on the run.
Matt Kearney, Never Be Ready
I only write when I am falling in love, or falling apart.
A healthy relationship is one where two independent people just make a deal that they will help make the other person the best version of themselves.
I’ve got my two hands on my pocket. The left is holding onto uncertainty. The other is clinging on to hope.
Note to myself
