Enjoy the post! Keep up the feedback!
There comes a time when every life goes off course. In this desperate moment you must choose your direction. Will you fight to stay on the path while others tell you who you are? Or will you label yourself? Will you be honoured by your choice? Or will you embrace your new path? Each morning you choose to move forward or to simply give up.
-One Tree Hill
Why do we keep them? Under our beds, in the attic, in the back of some drawer. We could have thrown them out a thousand times, and yet, there they are. Old love letters, written to a person we no longer are, by a hand we no longer hold.
"“I refuse to let what happened to me make me bitter. I still completely believe in love and I’m open to anything that will happen to me.”"
I got my red dress on tonight, dancing in the dark, in the pale moonlight. Done my hair up real big beauty queen style. High heels off, I'm feeling alive Oh, my God, I feel it in the air. Telephone wires above are sizzling like a snare. Honey, I'm on fire, I feel it everywhere. Nothing scares me anymore.
You get into fights with people who care about you the most, because those are the relationships that you're willing to fight for.
And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears - they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for all the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are playing this game of tug-of-war with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.
-The United States of Leland
We will always want something more than what we've got. But face it, whatever happens, happens. And whatever we are given, we need to hold onto that with all of our might. Because that's it. That's what we were given, what we've been trusted in to keep, to treasure, to take care of and to love with all of our hearts. We need to appreciate every little thing we've got because, well, it's all we've got. It's okay to dream, but first you need to treasure reality in all its beauty.
"The problem these days are that everyone is taught to lie, lie to our friends, lie to our parents, lie to society, and lie to ourselves"
The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. The brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.
Bad stuff does happen sometimes. Always remember that, but remember that you have to move on, somehow. You just pick up your head and stare at something beautiful like the sky or the ocean, and you'll move the hell on.
I think you could fall in love with anyone if you saw the parts of them that no one else gets to see. Like if you followed them around invisibly for a day and you saw them crying in their bed at night or singing to themselves as they make a sandwich or even just walking along the street and even if they were really weird and had no friends at school, I think after seeing them at their most vulnerable you wouldn’t be able to help falling in love with them.
Doesn't matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.
Just because you miss someone, doesn't mean you need them back in your life. Missing is just a part of moving on.
And I am still the worst company that I have ever kept. I just didn't want you to witness my weakness as I wept. And I still define myself by the places that I've been. It seems to me I'm not doing anything new, I'm just not doing what I used to.
I shot for the sky, I'm stuck on the ground. So why do I try, I know I'm gonna to fall down. I thought I could fly, so why did I drown?
Never know why it's coming down, oh I am going down, can't find another way around and I don't want to hear the sound of losing what I never found.
When he left, you spent all your energy holding on to him. You could be happy if you let go.
You know me too well. When I said I didn't love you, you looked me right in the eyes and said, "Bullshit, you're just running away."
Missing someone isn't about how long it has been since you've seen themor the amount of time since you've talked.It's about that very moment when you find yourself doing something and wishing they were right there by your side.
Don’t make me sad, don’t make me cry. Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough, I don’t know why. Keep making me laugh, let’s go get high. The road is long, we carry on, try to have fun in the meantime.
All my friends tell me I should move on. I'm lying in the ocean, singing your song, ahhh, that's how you sang it. Loving you forever, can't be wrong even though you're not here, won't move on. Ahhh, that's how we played it. And there's no remedy for memory, your face is like a melody, it won't leave my head. Your soul is haunting me and telling me that everything is fine, but I wish I was dead.
