“Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night.”
-Edna St. Vincent Millay
“Wanting him is hard to forget, loving him is hard to regret, losing him is hard to accept, but even with all the hurt I’ve felt, letting go is the most painful yet.”
“Love is as much of an object as an obsession, everybody wants it, everybody seeks it, but few ever achieve it, those who do will cherish it, be lost in it, and among all, never… never forget it.”
“Everyday is a new opportunity to stand up and try again.”
“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.”
God is closest to those with broken hearts.
Giving up doesn’t always mean you are weak; sometimes it means that you are strong enough to let go.
Sadness flies away on the wings of time.
~Jean de La Fontaine
I thought when love for you died, I should die.
It’s dead. Alone, most strangely, I live on.
Sadness flies on the wings of the morning and out of the heart of darkness comes the light.
When love is lost, do not bow your head in sadness; instead keep your head up high and gaze into heaven for that is where your broken heart has been sent to heal.
Relationships are like glass. Sometimes it’s better to leave them broken than try to hurt yourself putting it back together.
Love is like a puzzle. When you’re in love, all the pieces fit but when your heart gets broken, it takes a while to get everything back together.
Count the garden by the flowers, never by the leaves that fall. Count your life with smiles and not the tears that roll.
Don’t worry about losing. If it is right, it happens – The Main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.
~John Steinbeck, 10 November 1958
Maybe part of loving is learning to let go.
~From the television show The Wonder Years
It’s not love’s going hurts my days
But that it went in little ways.
~Edna St. Vincent Millay
Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it.
Let no one who loves be unhappy… even love unreturned has its rainbow.
~James Matthew Barrie
Sometimes the memories are worth the pain.
Sometime you just have to hold your head up high, blink away the tears and say good-bye.
People think it is holding on that makes you stronger, but sometimes it’s letting go.
I made a choice to finally let go, because I can’t stand the pain, it’s time for my last tear to fall and smile again.
I cried today… not because I miss you… or even wanted you… but because I realized I’m gonna be all right without you.
So… from now on… when you think of me… just remember that I could’ve been the best thing you ever had.
Why did I break up with him? Well ,it’s like, once I sat down and looked at the situation, all the pieces lying on the floor, it just wasn’t a puzzle anymore. None of the pieces fit together. And even if I tried really hard, the pieces, well they were two different puzzles. That’s why I did it, he needs to understand that.
The hardest thing about growing up is that you have to do what is right for you even if it means breaking someone’s heart. Including your own.
Sometimes all you need is a broken heart to realize that something even better is right in front of our eyes, just waiting to be found.
Of course, you’re going to get your heart broken. And it isn’t just going to happen once, but a lot. That’s just part of growing up, and it makes you stronger. Then you can handle it better next time. You may not get through it yourself, but your friends will help you through it. And you’ll be a stronger person because of it. Then one day someone will come along, and it’ll all pay off and no one will ever break your heart again.
Frustrated because I can’t tell if it’s real. Mad because I don’t know how you feel. Upset because we can’t make it right. Sad because I need you day and night. Angry because you won’t take my hand. Aggravated because you don’t understand. Disappointed because we can’t be together, but still I’ll love you forever.
It’s not that we aren’t meant to be together, I think that we’re just not ready for forever.
There were reasons we met, reasons for the good times and reasons for the bad times, and most importantly a reason to end. We have more to learn, more to experience and more loving to do in this lifetime.
Sometimes we must get hurt in order to grow; we must fail in order to know. Sometimes our vision only clears after our eyes are washed away with tears.
I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mending whole was good as new. What is broken is broken – and I’d rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived.
It’s really painful to say goodbye to someone that you don’t want to let go but its even more painful to ask someone to stay if they never wanted to stay.
