“You know, I was thinking, watching Third Person… Do you ever write about me?”
And I laughed. But I thing is, I don’t. I don’t think I ever have. And that’s when I knew I wouldn’t see him again.
“Sometimes my centre is so ripe; I am of this world, but not in it.”
“I know I love myself because I’m sleeping naked again.”
“If you don’t like your face, change your eyes.”
“I must be the only person that uses yoga as an opportunity to self-punish.”
“I am so used to missing people that it almost doesn’t matter anymore.”
“The hook was hope. As if his regret was the proof I needed to believe that I am loveable.”
“Maybe we attach too much importance to external praise.”
“I think that if I could be with someone for a year, I could be with them forever.”
“Forgiveness is easy when you’re happy.”
“I mean, yes, the ones that hurt you the most are the ones you love the most. It’s inevitable. Not the ones that love you. It is you that loves them that hurts the most. But I think that their love for you is what heals you and allows you to move on from that pain. That’s when it becomes part of a stronger foundation. But when on love is not coming through to you, that pain becomes ugly. Barren. A sharp thing inside you. You can get used to it, and it can become part of your foundation. Once you pass through it, you are stronger, wiser. But I don’t think you ever really get over it. You just develop calloused fingers so it doesn’t hurt to hold it inside you anymore. This kind of pain will always exist, even when you forget to remember it. And so, yes, it is possible to never want to see someone again, even if you’ve forgive or forgotten them or both.
Some things are so traumatic to overcome. They take up so much energy and strength and perseverance to heal from, that once you’re on the other side, you can only be relieved that the door is behind you. Sometimes you are so grateful it’s over, you never want to think about it again.You will never open that door again, not even to get to the good bits.”
“We are more haunted by the those we hurt than the ones that hurt us.”
