“No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater…The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that’s the key. It’s like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot.”—Sarah Dessen, This Lullaby (via dissapolnted)
“You often think loneliness is sitting alone in a dark corner, hiding yourself from the world, no one bothering to talk to you.
But it’s not.
It’s sitting on your bed at two in the morning with an aching soul, a broken mind, and no one to call.
It’s a never ending black hole, vacuuming any light that approaches; vanishing in an instant.
It’s knowing that no matter how many fake smiles you try to compose, everyone can see through your transparency.
It’s an anchor, holding you underwater, and no matter how close you think you are to drawing a breath, you never break the surface.
Loneliness isn’t locking yourself away,
Loneliness is being alive.”—t.a.t. (two am thoughts)
