"I loved you so much once. I did. More than anything in the whole wide world. Imagine that. What a laugh that is now. We were so intimate once upon a time I can’t believe it now. I think that’s the strangest thing of all now. The memory of being that intimate with somebody. We were so intimate I could puke. I can’t imagine ever being that intimate with somebody else. I haven’t been."
Raymond Carver, Where I’m Calling From (via simply-quotes)
"When something bothered me, I didn’t talk with anyone about it. I thought it over all by myself, came to a conclusion, and took action alone. Not that I really felt lonely. I thought that’s just the way things are. Human beings, in the final analysis, have to survive on their own."
Haruki Murakami (Sputnik Sweetheart)
"Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over. "
Octavia Butler (via theselittlewondersstillremain)
My Confession (76/365)
"I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke."
Meredith Grey (via erraticintrovert)
"Remind yourself that you are other things besides in love and hopeless and sort of sad in the saddest way possible like, you are also a friend or a son, daughter or an employee, student and also a thinker, a doer, a person who lives and has lived before this sad, sad mess came to pass."
