I turned to my ma and asked her, like a child asking why the sky is blue, “but what if the person who loves you just lives really far away and has other important things to do?” There was a battle of silence that bled through the air in the next minute or two. “If you really love a person enough, you’d find a way. You did.”
“If a guy wants to be with a girl, he will make it happen, no matter what. So trust me when I say if a guy is treating you like he doesn’t give a shit, he genuinely doesn’t give a shit. No exceptions.”—He’s Just Not That Into You (via allforthemems)
“The Buddhists say if you meet somebody and your heart pounds, your hands shake, your knees go weak, that’s not the one. When you meet your ‘soul mate’ you’ll feel calm. No anxiety, no agitation.”—(via sexsplosive)
So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.
Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.
