You keep looking for answers to justify why it didn’t work out and why it probably never will.
You ask your friends and maybe a stranger, but most importantly, you ask yourself. You question why you weren’t good enough and what made him want her instead.
You cry and you sigh and you go over it in your head a hundred times. You fight with yourself. You hate yourself.
But at some point, you have to stop. You have stop wondering and waiting and asking, and just accept that what happened, happened. He did what he did because he chose to do it, and that’s the only answer you need.
And if you can’t accept it, learn from it. Become stronger and wiser and know that although you didn’t get what you wanted with him, you’re going to get something so much greater from someone else someday.” — (via the-taintedtruth)
"I have never been loved and I’m aching to love and to be loved, fearing I never will."
Heartache will be there in a way that feels almost comforting with time. It is like welcoming an old but well-known friend. A friend who’s grown up since you met them. A friend who mirrors the ways in which you yourself have changed.
So I was shooting on this roof earlier and this couple randomly comes out from that door and are playing and running to and from each other for like 20 minutes. They looked like little kids, It was so cute I wanted to cry.

“Leaving me was okay. People leave me all the time, I’m used to it. What hurts like hell is when you made me feel so damn special yesterday, and then make me feel so unwanted today.” — (via lonachu)
