relationships quotes

And fate let me

fall in love with you,

but it never

gave me a chance

to spend a lifetime

of keeping you.

I wished you weren’t temporary // ma.c.a

“For you I could pretend like I was happy when I was sad.

For you I could pretend like I was strong when I was hurt”

Bts- Fake Love

When you’re in an abusive relationship, the abuse, in your head, is a blip. It’s something that happens between the good times. You trick yourself with “everyone has problems in their relationship” and assume this is what healthy looks like. You only realise too late it’s not. You realise too late how unhappy you really are. You see, the brain is a beautiful and terrible thing, it is sharp as the end of a knife, whilst staying soft as silk against your cheek. It is a paradox and it holds you hostage, it turns on you when it goes through trauma. It takes time to convince your own mind that you deserve better and what is happening to you is messed up and you must find a way out.

She was so beautiful. I could never tell her enough, and she could never believe it enough. The way her face lit up when her soft mouth curled into a smile; the way her laugh sounded - like being close to a warm crackling fireplace in a long winter night. Her eyes staring at me in amazement, like I was the rarest thing in the world she had ever seen. Her warm breath in my ear as she excitedly told me things like a kid when we were lying down next to each other.
