“People think they know you. They think they know how you’re handling a situation. But the truth is no one knows. No one knows what happens after you leave them, when you’re lying in bed or sitting over your breakfast alone and all you want to do is cry or scream. They don’t know what’s going on inside your head—the mind-numbing cocktail of anger and sadness and guilt. This isn’t their fault. They just don’t know. And so they pretend and they say you’re doing great when you’re really not. And this makes everyone feel better. Everybody but you.”

“Your soulmate is not someone that comes into your life peacefully. It is who comes to make you question things, who changes your reality, somebody that marks a before and after in your life. It is not the human being everyone has idealized, but an ordinary person, who manages to revolutionize your world in a second …”

I think it’s so stupid to beg people to stay in your life. If they don’t put in the effort, let them go. ESCORT them out. Hold the door. It’s not worth it, it’s a waste of energy. No one is that important for you to lose sleep over their lack of work in a friendship or relationship. Let them go. It will be better for you, I promise.
