"you don't mature with time, you mature through lessons. you mature when you make mistakes and learn where you went wrong. you mature the moment you can admit that you were wrong and accept that people will always have differing opinions on you and that's okay. you mature when you look within yourself before you look at others, it is the moment you decide to hold your tongue instead of engage in unnecessary dispute. you mature when you choose kindness over arrogance, and choose to forgive over holding grudges. you don't mature through the time that passes, you mature through the lessons you seek and understand."
You were the first person who’s come into my life in a very long time that I thought would actually stay.
There's no falling, only fallen. When you know, you're already there. The realization, the clarity, the awareness; it all comes after when it's too late.
“Don’t be so hard on yourself when you find yourself dwelling on your past and overthinking about all the misfortune you’ve had. Because sometimes people forget that the past is a pathway. And a pathway is a journey. and a journey takes time. and time is all you have when you feel lost. So please be patient, be kind because something better is on the way.”
There are so many of us in this world who have hearts of gold. Hearts too gentle, too kind, and too caring for too many of the people in this world. Hearts that will get hurt and hardened by people who they never deserved to know. Hearts that never deserved everything that they had to experience, go through. Hearts that only ever want to see and think the best of people and their intentions.
You want to move on. You so desperately do. Replace the very things, feelings, that you have lost; the good ones that is. The good that you once had.
