“It’s weird…you know the end of something great is coming, but you want to hold on, just for one more second…just so it can hurt a little more.” Unknown.
” I hurt myself today to see if I still feel. I focus on the pain the only thing that’s real” Nine Inch Nails
“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…You give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should be just friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.” Neil Gaiman
“Love comes when manipulation stops; when you think more about the other person than about his or her reactions to you. When you dare to reveal yourself fully. When you dare to be vulnerable.” Dr Joyce Brothers
“Love me when I least deserve it, because that’s when I really need it.” Swedish Proverb
“The worst thing one can do is not to try, to be aware of what one wants and not give in to it, to spend years in silent hurt wondering if something could have materialized – never knowing.” Jim Rohn
“There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.” Richard Buckminster Fuller
“Just like the butterfly, I too will awaken in my own time.” Deborah Chaskin
