  • if you feel broken when you are supposed to feel whole, it's divine intervention. when someone is supposed to be your better half, they are supposed to be better. if you feel empty and lost and scared and they're not there, they won't ever be. you can't make exceptions for them because you don't mean as much as you think. if you are stuck reaching out and there is nothing to grab, it's always going to be like that.

    we all want to believe in love, me especially, but sometimes it feels so unreal. it changes, it has to, or there would be no more people being created but i always have to wonder if it will ever change for me. is love supposed to be simple? is love supposed to be complicated? i keep thinking that maybe it's because i'm crazy or that it's because i don't understand but that doesn't make me want it less.
