"Just because you love someone does not mean you should be with them, and vice versa. You can love someone and be broken up about them and that can be part of your story. It can stand alone. Acceptance does not necessarily mean being happy about something… it just means recognizing it for what it is and letting it be that way."
"I want to take back at least half of the ‘I love you’s, because I didn’t mean them as much as the other ones.
I want to take back the secrets I told you so I can decide now whether to tell them to you again.
I want to take back the piece of me that lies in you, to see if I truly miss it.
I want to take back at least half the ‘I love you’s, because it feels safer that way."
David Levithan, The Lover’s Dictionary (via wickedfemale)
Ugh, I wish this wasn’t true.
