You didn’t love her, you just didn’t want to be alone. Or maybe, maybe, she was just good for your ego, or maybe she made you feel better about your miserable life, but you didn’t love her, because you don’t destroy the people you love.
I finally understood what true love meant…love meant that you care for another person’s happiness more than your own, no matter how painful the choices you face might be.
- John, Dear John (via quote-book)
I’m the one that has to die when it’s time for me to die, so let me live my life, the way I want to.
Learning is not child’s play; we cannot learn without pain.
What price must I pay
and what burdens must I bear
for you to love me?
Of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these, ‘It might have been.’
Only the water
between your skin and my hands
separates us now.
