I like drinking coffee alone and reading alone. I like riding the bus alone and walking home alone. It gives me time to think and set my mind free. I like eating alone and listening to music alone. But when I see a mother with her child, a girl with her lover, or a friend laughing with their best friend, I realize that even though I like being alone, I don’t fancy being lonely. the sky is beautiful, but the people are sad. I just need someone who won’t run away.
You deserve friends. You deserve love. You deserve love when its tough, when its awkward, when: what does it look like to love someone who lives in a place we’ve never been.

You’re not in love with me, not really, you just love the way I always made you feel. Like you were the centre of my world. Because you were. I would have done anything for you.

Who isn’t crazy sometimes? Who hasn’t driven around a block hoping a certain person will come out; who hasn’t haunted a certain coffee shop, or stared obsessively at an old picture; who hasn’t toiled over every word in a letter, taken four hours to write a two-sentence email, watched the phone praying it will ring; who doesn’t lay awake at night sick with the image of her sleeping with someone else?

More and more I found myself at a loss for words and didn’t want to hear other people talking either. Their conversations seemed false and empty. I preferred to look at the sea, which said nothing and never made you feel alone.

April was too lonely a month to spend alone. In April, everyone around me looked happy. People would throw their coats off and enjoy each other’s company in the sunshine—talking, playing catch, holding hands. But I was always by myself.

It’s tough to get out of bed; I know that myself. You can lie there for an hour and a half without thinking anything, just worrying about what the day holds and knowing that you won’t be able to deal with it.

Right now everything looks so strange to me, as if I don’t belong here. It’s me that’s out of place. And the worst thing is that I feel there’s somewhere I do belong, but I just can’t find it.

I thought about how love was always the thing that did that - smashed into you, left you raw. The deeper you loved, the deeper it hurt.

Anonymous asked: Once, this girl called Sofia, told me "Thank God I don't have your life". And Sofia probably doesn't even remember it anymore... But honestly, I really deeply think about it too often, because she knows almost nothing about me. And the truth is, I don't even know if that's a good thing or if it only makes it all worse...

Don’t you dare give this girl and what she said to you, even another thought.

I always remember things that other people forget. sometimes people say things and they don’t realize the heaviness it can have on who they are saying it to. They don’t realize that some people deeply internalize things like this.

Just be content with who you are and what you have. that’s all that matters. don’t let anyone make you feel bad about any thing, no sense in giving them that kind of power.

Anonymous asked: Do you like someone?

depends who’s asking…

You think ‘Okay, I get it, I’m prepared for the worst’, but you hold out that small hope, see, and that’s what fucks you up. That’s what kills you.
