“He was both everything I could ever want… And nothing I could ever have…”

“I fell for you and I fell hard. You bruised my knees and my heart to the point where I will do everything in my power never to fall for anyone again. It’s safer to stay on your feet. I would rather walk through life completely without love – empty; than crawl through what’s been pumping through my veins one more time.”

“The hardest part of letting go is the ‘uncertainty’ – when you are afraid that the moment you let go of someone you will hate yourself when you find out how close you were to winning their affection. Every time you give yourself hope you steal away a part of your time, happiness and future. However, once in a while you wake up to this realization and you have to hold on tightly to this truth because your heart will tear away the foundation of your logic, by making excuses for why this person doesn’t try as much as you. The truth is this: Real love is simple. We are the ones that make it complicated. A part of disconnecting is recognizing the difference between being desired and being valued. When someone loves you they will never keep you waiting, give their attention and affection away to others, allow you to continue hurting, or ignore what you have gone through for them. On the other hand, a person that desires you can’t see your pain, only what they can get from you with minimal effort in return. They let you risk everything, while they guard their heart and reap the benefits of your feelings. We make so many excuses for the people we fall in love with and they make up even more to remain one foot in the door. However, the truth is God didn’t create you to be treated as an option or to be disrespected repeatedly. He wants you to close the door. If someone loves you and wants to be in your life no obstacle will keep them from you. Remember, you are royalty, not a beggar.”



“You have certain ideas about what should happen… expectations. And if life is not moving that way, something is wrong. Nothing is going wrong! Life is going on its own, only you have some fixed ideas. So drop those fixed ideas. Life is never going to follow you… you have to follow life. So if it is muddled, be muddled. What can you do?”

“The key to successful relationships is recognizing who can fulfill what – naturally. Relationships fail, we remain discontent because we are forcefully trying one to fill all. This is a powerful realization, when it hits you, it can make you more content with relationships, people and even yourself, especially when you start to apply the same principle on you. You cannot be everything for someone… just as no one person can be everything for you.”

“If you have to be told how you should feel then those feelings are not strong enough to make you feel alive; they become rules that don’t fit your life script. Not every person will place the same importance as you do on one of the six human needs: certainty, variety, significance, connection/love, growth or contributions. When you know what is most important for yourself and learn to recognize what need is the most important to others, then you can begin to unlock the real reason behind conflict.”


“I gave you my love and you gave me heartaches in return.”

“They say when you are missing someone that they are probably feeling the same, but I don’t think It’s possible for you to miss me as much as I am missing you right now.”

“It’s better when I hate you; when I miss you is when it hurts the most.”

“I don’t know if I’m getting over him or if I’m just getting used to the pain.”

“To burn with desire and keep quiet about it is the greatest punishment we can bring on ourselves.”

“Because what’s worse than knowing you want something, besides knowing you can never have it?”

“Maybe I was destined to forever fall in love with people I couldn’t have. Maybe there’s a whole assortment of impossible people waiting for me to find them. Waiting to make me feel the same impossibility over and over again.”

“Let no one who loves be called altogether unhappy. Even love unreturned has its rainbow.”

“There comes a time in your life when you have to choose to turn the page, write another book or simply close it.”

“A person doesn’t know true hurt and suffering until they’ve felt the pain of falling in love with someone whose affections lie elsewhere.”



“The saddest thing is to be a minute to someone when you’ve made them your eternity.”

“Being in love with someone who doesn’t even know you exist isn’t the worst thing in the world. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Almost like passing in a term paper that you know sucked, but having that period of time where you haven’t gotten your grade back yet – that kind of exhale where you haven’t been rejected, although you pretty much know how it’s going to turn out.”

“The most confused you will ever get is when you try to convince your heart and spirit of something your mind knows is a lie.”

“Sometimes no matter how many eyelashes or dandelion seeds you blow, no matter how much of your heart you tear out and slap on your sleeve, it just ain’t gonna happen.”

“I had discovered that there was something more painful than falling in love with someone who hasn’t fallen for you; hurting that person – hurting him and not being able to do anything about it.”


“Your memory feels like home to me. So whenever my mind wanders, it always finds its way back to you.”

“I’d always secretly believed that a love as fierce and true as mine would be rewarded in the end, and now I was being forced to accept the bitter truth.”

“Love is as simple as the absence of self-given to another. God, when invited, fills the void of any unrequited love; hence loving is how one is drawn closer to God no matter its most horrific repercussions.”

“Never fall in love with someone that won’t fight for you because when the real battles begin they won’t pull your heart to safety, but they will their own.”

“I think perhaps I will always hold a candle for you – even until it burns my hand. And when the light has long since gone… I will be there in the darkness holding what remains, quite simply because I cannot let go.”

“You think being dead inside is bad until someone brings you back to life and stabs you in the chest without the intention of killing you.”
