I know it’s hard for you to talk to anyone right now, but how much do I wish I could tell you this: love isn’t everything. You don’t always have to live on the feeling of being in love. You are not a half of a whole seeking for your perfect other half; you are whole. You could be capable of creating masterpieces if you tried to reach for the sky. So please don’t get stuck in your hopeless circle, waiting for love - you are so much more than that person you said you are.

Wanted to suffer so layered Eliza’s breaking heart with Hamilton’s death. It’s about as happy as it sounds. Seriously, I’m crying.

Maybe there’s a part in everyone of us that craves affection. We’re all animals anyway - we instinctively look for warmth and protection. Even if we don’t admit it, or shy away from it, that part still exists within us. Are we weak then, because we long for affection or are we strong because we know we cannot survive without one another?

@t00tsie-p0p and here’s the other! A little note about the ‘not all who wander’ quote - this is by JRR Tolkien who was a medievalist studying Anglo-Saxon at Oxford University. Apparently, Thomas Jefferson was very interested in languages and read lots of Old English! He also travelled broadly and was interested in other cultures, so that’s why I thought the quote suited him quite nicely!

I guess loving different people is different. You just happen to get over this person quickly, but not that person. There’s no reason to it, other than that your heart has capabilities to make you feel like you’re soaring on top of the sky - but at the same time, sinking into the bottom of deep abyss. Everyone’s heart is different; if someone stops loving you, they’re not to blame. Understanding this atrocious nature of love is how you forgive yourself - and others - and to move on.
