Yes, I’m selfish. I want people to stay with me. I want them all to my own. I want to keep everything that’s mine with me. But in the end, they still leave— for good. And I have no idea why. Is it me? Am I the reason things change? Am I loving too much, or my love isn’t enough? I don’t know. I don’t understand.
hope u learned something today
If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never get it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.
To care for someone means not to expect anything in return. It also means to care enough to believe in the other person’s strengths and that they will solve their own problems. Caring does not mean taking in their emotions as though they are your own (as this affects your ability to be fully there for them; you start to care about your own feelings instead). Empathy by definition is to be able to identify how the other person feels and convey those feelings to them so they feel understood and will more likely open up. Empathy doesn’t mean to share their emotions with them!
No one can promise they’ll never hurt you, because at one time or another they will. The real promise is if the time you spent together will be worth the pain in the end.
this just this
