___________________________________________ “You’re the reason I come home. You’re the reason I come home, boy. You’re the reason that when everything I know falls apart… Well, you’re the reason I come home.
Paper doll silhouettes, Fingertips on window glass; The street’s asleep, So I breathe you in deep.
The tragedies of chemistry, People dream of what you and me Have found… Effortlessly.
But you’re the reason I come home. You’re the reason I come home, boy. You’re the reason that when everything I know falls apart… You’re the reason I come home.”
You can’t date a jerk and expect to turn them into a good person. Jerks are fully committed to being unpleasant. Those brief moments of tenderness they give you are designed to trip you up and give you false hope. It’s best to stay away altogether.
The rumors are true: your metabolism does slow down as you get older! That means if you’re still eating whatever you want, there’s a good chance you’ll start to gain an awkward amount of weight. It won’t be too drastic but your clothes will start to hang differently on your body and you’ll feel an overall feeling of unattractiveness. Start to be conscious of what you eat and strive to live a healthier lifestyle if you want to get your teen body back. (Let’s be real though, that might not ever come back.)
You’re going to lose touch with a lot of your friends. With some people, it will be expected but with others it will feel like a punch to the stomach. No friendship is truly safe in your twenties. You’re undergoing so many personal and professional changes that there’s bound to be some casualties along the way. Don’t worry though. You’ll end up with the ones that matter. If someone’s no longer in your life, it’s for a reason.
You’ll be jealous of everyone who’s more successful than you. That’s okay. Just transfer that jealousy into something productive, like working really hard so you can one day eclipse them and make them feel jealous of YOU.
if only i could have found this the day he broke my heart.
“”At a certain point in our lives, we were / are / will be blessed with someone who we think will forever stay with us. We fight our hearts out to make the relationship work. Plans and goals that we have charted for ourselves when we were younger start to change and we start to envision a future with that special person. We miss drinking sessions so we could be with our special someone. We literally brave heavy rains just so we could make that movie date happen. We were happy doing all these until fate takes a turn and things start to change. You feel all drained and exhausted. Every single thing you do for your partner slowly becomes an effort. Appreciation is no longer felt. Things slowly fall apart.
We get torn. We get broken. We get shattered. But things are bound to fall where they truly belong. If it’s meant to be lost, hearts will certainly break but you should also be forever thankful that someone like him/her came into your life. If the person stays, learn from the experience. If s/he worth holding on to, fighting for and living for, I see no reason why you should overwhelm yourself with the pain of the possibility of losing your partner.
Remember: No storm can break two hearts that are meant to be together. If s/he is meant for you, trust the heavens that your other half will find his/her way back to you. And more importantly, do your part to make your relationship with your partner work. Love isn’t a one way thing. It takes two people in love to make a relationship work. If one falls out of love, live the pain but not for too long. Cupid’s arrow might miss you when it’s time to meet the right one.
Hearts love. Hearts break. Hearts learn. When it’s time to love, give your all and regret nothing. When it’s time to let go, cherish memories but always make room for a greater love that’s bound to stay forever.”“
