moving forward quote

you don’t stop
loving someone
just because
you don’t talk
to each other
anymore.

you don’t start
hating someone
just because
things got tough
or wasn’t all
sunshine and
butterflies
the whole time.

sometimes
things work out,
sometimes
they don’t,

sometimes shit
just happens,
and that’s okay.

love is really,
fucking complicated
guys.
but go with it
when you find it
anyways.

you might
get lucky
or you might not,
but either way
you can say you
tried and learned.

and that’s
important
too.

“Do you love yourself,” he asked
And the answer twitched on my lips.

“Some days.
Some days I feel like I can take on the world. Where I’m so full of light and self love that nothing can stop me from being happy. Where I feel like I can reach the sky and paint it whatever color I imagine.
Where love is synonymous with you, me, us, them, everyone.

But other days I feel so weak.
So small.
I wonder how I ever felt so great about myself or life and I find all these things that shouldn’t mean anything to me and I pick at them until I fall apart.
I wrap myself up in tattered pieces of cloth and tell myself I am warm even though I’m shivering.”

- But at least I can love myself some days.

( @readyfornothing )

I truly hope one day you find something worth living for. One day I hope you can think of us and smile without crumbling to the floor. I hope you go out and chase those crazy dreams of yours. And I really hope you never forget that a piece of me will always be yours.
