We attach ourselves so strongly to people and when they’re gone a part of us is gone, too.
Things are so different now. We were together for most of our lives and now we’re not “us” anymore. Just promise we’ll always be friends, please?
Here’s the truth about big life changes: Some people won’t come with you and that’s okay.
Sometimes the door closes on a relationship, not because we failed but because something bigger than us says this no longer fits our life. So, lock the door, shed a tear, turn around and look for the new door that’s opened. It’s a sign that you’re no longer that person you were, it’s time to change into who you are. It’s going to be okay.
There comes a point in your life when you get tired of chasing everyone and trying to fix things. It’s not giving up. It’s realizing you don’t need certain people.
Sometimes you just have to erase the messages, delete the numbers, and move on. You don’t have to forget who that person was to you; only accept that they aren’t that person anymore.
Besides the obvious difference, there was not much distinction between losing a best friend and losing a lover: it was all about intimacy. One moment, you had someone to share your biggest triumphs and fatal flaws with; the next minute, you had to keep them bottled inside. One moment, you’d start to call her to tell her a snippet of news or to vent about your awful day before realizing you did not have that right anymore; the next, you could not remember the digits of her phone number.
Handle with Care by Jodi Picoult
If you meet someone whose soul is not aligned with yours, send them love and move along.
Wayne W. Dyer
I don’t leave much room in my future for people who left me in their past.
Just because you have a place in my heart doesn’t mean you’ll always have a place in my life.
I don’t mind being there for you. I just mind being the one you run to just because everyone else is busy.
Sorry, but I don’t need any part time people in my life. You’re either with me or you’re not. You can’t just come and go as you please.
That is the saddest part when you lose someone you love—that person keeps changing. And later you wonder, is this the same person I lost?
The Kitchen God’s Wife by Amy Tan
I saw you today and it was different. I mean, I see you everyday but today I could feel the distance. It’s like we’re strangers now. I know I should talk to you and tell you how I really feel but I can’t because I don’t want you to feel like it’s your fault that I’m the way I am now
Sometimes, when you give up on someone, it’s not because you don’t care anymore, but because you realize they don’t.
