I didn’t become heartless, I just became smarter. My happiness will not depend on someone else. Not anymore.
I want a girl who gets excited to talk to me. A girl who saves stories throughout the day just to tell them to me later. I want someone who texts me every morning to tell me to have a good day, even if I’ve been up at school for 3 hours already. I just want someone who acts like they care. Because I haven’t been getting much of that lately, and when people ask what’s wrong, I don’t know what to say. “I don’t feel loved?” “I don’t feel like I’m being fought for or given the effort i deserve?” It seems to petty to say out loud. i just want to feel excited to talk to someone. I want passion, and I don’t have it.
You have to accept that sometimes that’s how things happen in this world. People’s opinions, their feelings, they go one way, then the other. It just so happens you grew up at a certain point in this process.
― Kazuo Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go (via wordsnquotes)
Don’t ever give someone more importance than your self respect. You don’t need a person to make you happy, you need a person who can help you get through this life.
