connecting with someone really this complicated, or is it simple and we just make it worse?

John Mayer

“If you want to be truly intimidating, if you want to make an impact, if you want to have a strong connection with others, just be sincere. Sarcasm is not an attitude, and it’s not a personality trait.

“It’s a style of rhetoric meant to be used occasionally to highlight a larger point… Saying you’re a sarcastic person is like saying your favourite cuisine is salt. Sarcasm is easy because you never have to take a stance. And that’s just the problem; It’s so noncommittal.”
Then, one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…you give them a piece of you. They don’t ask for it. They do something dumb one day like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore.
Let me tell you a few things about regret…There is no end
Those who walk away from you in the dark should be forgotten in the light.

People always say, “Be humble, be humble, be humble.” When’s the last time somebody told you, “Be great, be amazing, be awesome?” Be awesome. BE AWESOME.
Have I ever told you about the first time I saw you?
…and I thought how easy it is to destroy the past and how difficult to forget it.
I guess that’s what saying good-bye is always like—like jumping off an edge. The worst part is making the choice to do it. Once you’re in the air, there’s nothing you can do but let go.
You looked at me
and I was done
And we’re, we’re just getting started.
It’s a special thing, saying ‘I love you’ to people you love. Because you never know when you’ll lose them, or when they’ll lose you.
Sometimes you just have to reach out and grab what you want, even when they tell you not to. This is something that I’ve struggled with my whole life long.
And the dangerous thing about excuses is that if we recite them enough times, we actually come to believe they are true.
Fearless is having the courage to say goodbye to someone who only hurts you, even if you can’t breathe without them.
Taylor Swift
I have to say that although it broke my heart, I was, and still am, glad I was there.
Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe, shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.
You are so busy being you that you have no idea how utterly unprecedented you are.

When people are ready to, they change. They never do it before then, and sometimes they die before they get around to it. You can’t make them change if they don’t want to, just like when they do want to, you can’t stop them.
Missing someone is a part of loving them; if you’re never apart, then you’ll never know how strong your love really is.
how do you just stop being terrified of getting left behind and ending up by yourself forever and not meaning anything to the world?
that was the kind of hurt that could only be inflicted by someone you loved, who you thought loved you. It was sort of like being stabbed from the inside out.
