“In love, no one can harm anyone else; we are each of us responsible for our own feelings and cannot blame someone else for what we feel. It hurt when I lost each of the various men I fell in love with. Now, though, I am convinced that no one loses anyone, because no one owns anyone. That is the true experience of freedom: having the most important thing in the world without owning it.”

—   Paulo Coelho (via middlenameconfused)

“Perhaps our love originated in the loneliness we both had known before. His hunger for togetherness was insatiable. That hunger became a vital necessity for me. In a way, each seeded a revolution in the other. We opened to each other so completely — not only physically, not only sexually, but like human beings related in a secret way. We bound ourselves, together.”

“All suffering originates from craving, from attachment, from desire.”

“Well, I think that when you have a connection with someone, it never really goes away, you know? You snap back to being important to each other because you still are.”

“Oh, my friend, it’s not what they take away from you that counts. It’s what you do with what you have left.”

—   Hubert Humphrey (via larmoyante)

“You don’t ever really let go, though. You don’t stop. You don’t stop hurting, you don’t stop loving. It doesn’t go away, you just keep living and eventually things get pushed into the background of your life so it’s not consuming you every day. And then one day you know you’re okay. It still hurts, you still miss that person. And yeah, you forget the details. The way she smelled, the way her mouth tasted, how her skin felt, the sound of her voice. It’s almost like a different life, a different person that loved her, was with her. But on a day-to-day level, you know you’re okay. Sort of.”

“Compliment yourself when you look in the mirror, massage yourself, eat food that makes your body happy, talk nothing but positive about yourself, treat yourself as if you’re the most important thing in your life. Because you are.”

“I’m afraid of losing you again. I’m afraid of having to do without you again. I’m terrified of that.”
