“The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.”—Thomas Merton (via kari-shma) (via quote-book, kari-shma)
Just because somebody flirts with you, Doesn’t mean they like you. Just because somebody likes you, doesn’t mean they wanna go out with you. Just because they wanna go out with you, Doesn’t mean they love you. Just because somebody loves you, Doesn’t mean they won’t hurt you. Because people lie, things change. boyfriends cheat, & “Bestfriends” ditch. And there are always gonna be those people who would kill to see you fall.
Do you ever wonder what it is that he thinks about at night before he falls asleep? because they’re the only thing in your dreams. do you ever wonder how many times your face flashes through his mind? because his face is like a film reel in yours. do you ever wonder if he stares at the phone hoping that message is from you? because he’s the only one you want a message from. do you ever wonder if he reads things like this that cause him to think of you? because he’s the one you’re thinking of now, huh?

“Everything we do is a choice. Oatmeal or cereal. Highway or side streets. Kiss her or keep her. We make choices and we live with the consequences. If someone gets hurt along the way, we ask for forgiveness. It’s the best anyone can do.”—Ned (Lee Pace), Pushing Daisies (via eunichick) (via quote-book)
“Forgive and forget. That’s what they say. It’s good advice, but it’s not very practical. When someone hurts us, we want to hurt them back. When someone wrongs us, we want to be right. Without forgiveness, old scores are never settled; old wounds never heal. And the most we can hope for, is that one day we’ll be lucky enough to forget.”—Meredith (Grey’s Anatomy) (via kari-shma)
