“What I mean is, I’m tired
of everything gorgeous.
Of the burden of burning.
Of wondering when. What I mean is,
on some nights I miss you so much
that I never want to see you again.”—Ali Shapiro (via perfect)
“I think you need to fall in love with the wrong person. I think you need to fight and cry and sweat and bleed and fail. I think you need to have bad relationships and bad breakups. I think you need all of that so that when the right person and the right relationship comes along you can sigh with relief and say, “Ah yes. That is how it’s supposed to feel.””—Excerpt from “Conversations with my Mother” (via connotativewords)
