"I think all the pressure that I put on myself has been paralyzing. When I graduated from high school, a lot of people wrote in my yearbook: ‘You’re going to do great things,’ or ‘I know you’re going to make it big.’ I realized recently that with all the time I spent trying to figure out what my ‘big thing’ was going to be, I passed over a lot of small things that could have really added up. The moment I became content with taking small steps, I started moving forward again."

The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.

Perhaps we’re not magic anymore. Perhaps we’re just comfortable. We just know our way around one another. We know which wounds to cauterize and which to let bleed.

Loneliness Within | Mary Stewart

bibliophilebunny:

“Perhaps loneliness had nothing to do with place or circumstance;

     Perhaps it was in you; yourself.

Perhaps, wherever you were, you took your little circle of loneliness with you…”

Silence fell between us. This was a common occurrence whenever we’re alone. When you’re comfortable with someone, you don’t need to always fill the void with noise. I liked it when we would just be.
