A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt, on his character in “500 Days of Summer”
“I just want it to be over. I’m so fucking tired of being sick. You know, if this surgery doesn’t work, that’s it. And I’ve never been to fucking Canada. I’ve never told a girl I loved her.” 50/50, 2011
“It’s just bullshit. It’s what everybody has been saying from the beginning. Like, "Well, you’ll feel better,” and “Don’t worry,” and “This is all fine.” And, like, it’s not. You know? I don’t know why everybody’s so fucking scared to just say it. Like, “You’re dying, dude.” It makes it worse that no one will just say it.“
Value yourself enough to choose to spend time with people who treat you the way you treat them. Know your worth. Know when you have had enough and move on from the people who keep chipping away at your happiness.
