"I learned the hard way that i cannot always count on others to respect my feelings, even if i respect theirs. Being a good person doesn't guarantee that others will be good people. You only have control over yourself and how you choose to be as a person. As for others, you can only choose to accept them or walk away."
“Passion has little to do with euphoria and everything to do with patience. It is not about feeling good. It is about endurance. Like patience, passion comes from the same Latin root: pati. It does not mean to flow with exuberance. It means to suffer.” — Mark Z. Danielewski, House of Leaves
I want to tell you that I’m falling in love with you. ‘Like’ was never the word to describe what I felt for you. I was enamored. I think I was in love with you on that very first day and since then I’ve found more reasons to love you and my heart has become more and more of you and now it’s all you. This thing in my chest– it’s got your name carved all over it and I never saw it happen. One day I woke up and I said to myself, “I’m in love with you and that’s it.” That is it. You and me? I want this. I want this painful, crazy, swirling thing and I want it with you. And not a lot of people can say that.
