"But to break the cycle and force yourself to stop initiating contact, to stop making effort, and to stop caring about their response—that is much harder. That means admitting that you have lost a battle you didn’t even want to acknowledge you were fighting. But when we’re trying to get someone to love us back, it’s always a battle. And it’s one we’re almost always guaranteed to lose."
— When They Don’t Love You Back, Chelsea Fagan (Thought Catalog)
"And these things happen – these people leave us, or don’t love us, or don’t get us, or we don’t get them, and we lose and fail and hurt one another."
Everything you love is here

"Not everything is supposed to become something beautiful and long-lasting. Sometimes people come into your life to show you what is right and 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 and spill your life to. Not everyone is going to stay forever, and we still have to keep on going and thank them for what they’ve given us."

"We are a mess of contradictions. We spend all our time looking for open doors and the second we get in, we race towards the exit. Everyone thinks that they’re different and don’t self-sabotage but in the end we are all the same. Don’t feel sad. It’s oddly comforting to know that we’re all psychos when it comes to love. You think someone is normal and happy and you hate them for it but then you see them in love and you’re like, “Oh, thank god. They’re crazy just like me."
