We are left with a choice. Either let the guilt throw you back into the behavior that got you into trouble in the first place, or learn from the guilt and do your best to move on.

I’m still mad at you and I don’t know if I trust you, I wanna trust you, but I don’t know if I do. So I’m just gonna try, I’m gonna try and trust you. Because I believe that, we can be extraordinary together. rather than ordinary apart.

As we grow up, we learn that the one person who isn’t supposed to let you down, will and the one person you never thought would be there for you, is. You’re going to have fights with your friends, you’re going to lose some of your friends, and you will eventually lose someone you love and love someone you never thought you’d find. People are going to hate you, love you, love to hate you, but the ones that mean the most to you will always be there. Life is too short. So have way too much fun, take way too many pictures, have way too many friends and enemies, laugh way too much for way too long, but most importantly, love with all you have.

We are friends, real friends. And this means, no matter how long it takes, when you finally do decide to look back, I’ll still be here.

You are my person. You will always be my person.

Forgive & 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.

There’s a reason I said I’d be happy alone. It wasn’t ‘cause I thought I’d be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It’s easier to be alone. Because what if you learn that you need love and then you don’t have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It’s like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
—Meredith (Grey’s Anatomy)
If there’s just one piece of advice I can give you, it’s this—when there’s something you really want, fight for it, don’t give up no matter how hopeless it seems. And when you’ve lost hope, ask yourself in 10 years from now, you’re gonna wish you gave it just one more shot because the best things in life, they don’t come free.
—Meredith Grey (via inbetweenfearandfreedom)
I do love you. Don’t you see? Don’t you understand? You’re the love of my life. I can’t leave you. But you’re constantly leaving me. You walk away when you want, you come back when you want. Not everyone, not your friends, but you leave me. So I’m asking you…if you don’t see a future for us, if you aren’t in this… please…please just end it, because I can’t. I’m in it. Put me out of my misery.
—Derek (Greys Anatomy)
We do our very best, but sometimes it’s just not good enough. We buckle our seatbelts, we wear a helmet, we stick to the lighted paths, we try to be safe. We try so hard to protect ourselves, but it doesn’t make a damn bit of difference. Cause when the bad things come, they come out of nowhere. The bad things come suddenly, with no warning. But we forget that sometimes that’s how the good things come too.
I mean, we get addicted for a reason, right? Often, too often, things that start out as just a normal part of your life at some point cross the line to obsessive, compulsive, out of control. It’s the high we’re chasing, the high that makes everything else fade away but it never ends well. Because eventually, whatever it is that was getting us high, stops feeling good, and starts to hurt. Still, they say you don’t kick the habit until you hit rock bottom. But how do you know when you are there? Because no matter how badly a thing is hurting us, sometimes, letting it go hurts even worse.
