any help with quotes would be greatly appriciated - it's getting hard to find good ones !
You deserve to be with somebody who makes you happy. Somebody who doesn't complicate your life. Somebody who won't hurt you.
Sometimes pain becomes such a huge part of your life that you expect it to always be there, because you can't remember a time in your life when it wasn't, but then one day you feel something else. Something that feels wrong, only because its so unfamiliar. Then in that moment you realize you're happy.
If you want me to change, you've got to give me a chance to try.
She's your pretty portrait , I'm your wrinkled photograph .
I don't want to say that I hate you because that would be a lie and I don't want to say that I'm hurting inside, because you would know I'm telling the truth . I don't wanna say I miss you because it's obvious, and I've said it enough and I don't wanna tell you I still love you, because everytime I do, it hurts more and more . It almost makes it harder to breathe, when you tell me how amazing she is. I know we'll never have our happily ever after after all .
What ever "we" were, it's over. Why do you insist on coming back around just to make me second guess myself. I forgot about you, and trust me you were not that easy to forget. But for my own good, you need to get out of my life. Because even if you are around, you are still there.
I'm scared because I don't want anyone to have your heart, I don't want anyone else to kiss your lips, I don't want anyone else to be in your arms, I dont want anyone but me to be the one you love. I'm scared because I don't want anyone to take what used to be, my place.
You don't stop laughing because you grow old.
You grow old because you stop laughing.
a best friend is there when you have nothing.. and more importantly, when you feel like nothing.
You try to do things so that you can fit in and then you come to a point in your life when you try to do things so that you stand out.
if someone is stupid enough to walk out of your life , be smart enough to let them go .
"Because sometimes you have to step outside the person you've been
and remember the person you were meant to be.The person you want
to be. The person that you are."
sometimes holding on doesn't mean you're too weak to let go - sometimes it means you're strong enough to have never given up hope.
and sometimes giving up doesnít always mean you're too weak to hold on - sometimes it means you're strong enough to let go .
I thought I could forget you, but I thought wrong. I thought I could get over you but its been a lie for too long. I thought that I would be able to hate you but it's something I can't do. No matter what I try to do, I have to face it I'm still in love with you.
The opposite of war isn't peace, it's creation .
Maybe we like the pain. Maybe we're wired that way. Because without it, I don't know; maybe we just wouldn't feel real. What's that saying? Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop.
- Meredith Grey
"If there's just one piece of advice i can give you, it's this - when there's something you really want, fight for it, don't give up no matter how hopeless it seems. And when you've lost hope, ask yourself if 10 years from now, are you gonna wish you gave it just one more shot. Because the best things in life, they don't come free.Ē
- Meredith Grey
Why is it so much easier to forgive a stranger then someone you love ?
You can drive at 16, go to war at 18, drink at 21, and retire at 65. So who can say what age you have to be to find your true love?
She's the one you call when you're bored because she makes you laugh. She's the one you talk to when you're feeling down because she's willing to lend an ear & be a friend. She's not the one you call when you need a date to your company's Christmas party, or to go dancing with on a Saturday night. She's the one you spend time with between girlfriends, before you find "The One." You know, the one who you keep around in the meantime. She's not one of the guys, not a tomboy, but you don't look at her as a 'real' woman, either. She's not bitchy enough, or moody enough to be seen in that light. She's too laid-back, too easily amused by the same things your male buddies are amused by. She's too understanding, too comfortable; she doesn't make you feel nervous or excited the way a 'real' woman does. But she's cool, and nice, and funny, & attractive enough that when you're lonely & need female companionship, she'll do just fine. You don't have to wine & dine her because she knows the real you already, & you don't have any facades to keep up, no pretenses to preserve. You're not trying to get anything of substance out of her, she's not easy, but you know that she cares about you & is attracted to you, & that she'll give you the friend you need. And you know you don't have to explain yourself or the situation, that she'll be able to cope with the fact that this isn't the beginning of a relationship or that there's any possibility that you have any real romantic feelings for her. It won't bother her that you'll go on a date with the woman you've been mooning over for weeks who finally agreed to go out with you. She'll settle for a goodbye hug & a promise to call her & tell her how the date went. She's just so cool. But deep down, if you really think about it (which you probably don't because to you, the situation between the two of you isn't important enough to merit any real thought), you know that it's really not fair. You know that although she would never say it, it hurts her to know that despite all her good points & all the fun you two have, you don't think she's good enough to spend any real time with. Sure, it's mostly her fault, because she doesn't have to give in to your needs. She could play the hard-to-get person like the rest of them do, if she really wanted to. But you & she both know that she probably couldn't pull it off. Maybe she's too short, or a little overweight, or has a big birthmark on her forehead, or works at Taco Bell. Whatever the reason, somehow life has given her a lot of really great qualities but has left out the ones that men want (or think they want) in a woman. So she remains forever the funny friend, the steadfast companion, & you go on searching for your goddess who will somehow be everything you ever wanted in a woman. You'll joke to her that she should be the best man at your wedding, & she'll laugh and make a joke about a smelly rental tux. She doesn't captivate you with her beauty, or open doors with her smile. Mainly she blends in with the crowd. She's safe. She doesn't want to be the center of attention & turn the heads of everyone in the room, but she wants to turn someone's head. She wants to be special to someone, too. We all do. She has feelings; she has a heart. In fact, she probably has a bigger & better heart than any woman you've ever known because she's had a front-row seat to The Mess That Is Your Life, & she likes you anyway. She obviously sees something worthwhile & redeeming in you because although you've given her nothing, absolutely no reason to still be around, she is. But someday, she won't be around. This feeling is like drinking cold hot chocolate. It is still good, but if it was warmed up, it'd clearly be better. Just like life. If that one thing wasn't missing, then it'd be better. I'm not saying that life is bad, because compared to other people, i have it good. It's just like i'm going through life without realizing it. I feel like i'm just going through the motions without you. Sooner or later i'm going to forget about you, and forget about this feeling. But judging from the fact that i'm still not over it, it'll probably be later. It is unfair because i'm left here hanging and you have already forgotten about me. Apparently it didn't mean as much to you, apparently I didnt mean as much to you, as you did to me. Before i met you, everything was a lot simpler. I'm glad I did meet you though because it shows me that there is something more out there. More than just the people I keep on coming back to and settling with. I dont want to settle anymore, and I certainly dont want to just be content. I dont want you to think that I have been crying over you or anything because I haven't! I know better than that. Crying over you would be useless and wouldn't solve anything. I just miss you. Not even you, just the way you made me feel. I just felt as if there could've been something beautiful there, but I just caught a glimps of it. I'll only truely be happy when I have that feeling in my hands. But no one said it was going to be easy. So maybe that is my journey, to search for that feeling. But in the meantime, i'll try to go back to normal, even if it is impossible. Everytime I forget about you something else reminds me of you. This is the perfect oppertunity to make a clean break. I should've known you'd bring me heartache. "Almost lovers" always do.
It figures that the minute you risk your heart, the moment you think to yourself that this time its going to be different, is the moment that the thing that you were scared of happening - happens. You are left with your heart uncovered for the whole world to see and your angry. Angry that you let your heart overcome logical thinking. Its kind of funny in a way though.
You were always the one to sit back and clearly see the solution to other peoples silly problems.
Always the one to swear that it wouldn't happen to you. Always the one to claim to know better.
You believe that if you never risk anything, you never lose. Which is true, but you never gain either.
You believe that when your heart is broken, dont show it. Hold your head above your heart.
You believe that you are better than just good enough.
After it all, it gives you a different perspective. So now you are the one to shake your head at his fairytales, because you know he's only looking for the next best thing.
everyone has wanted something that they know they shouldn't want. that one person who no matter how many stupid, immature, idiotic, ass-hole-like things they do, you still can see no wrong. you walk around telling people they've changed. because thats exactly what he told you. that he'd changed, "grown up". yeah well, talk is cheap. people don't change. thats one thing that i now know for sure. people either become more like who they really are, or less like who they really are. but they never change entirely. they still want the same things. or thing. still have the same outlook on it all. they've just gotten better at what they do. one thing about change is that its not forever. so how long can you really "change" for? in every bad experience, there's a lesson learned. knowledge is the only thing i've gained.
love is a minefield : you take a step, get blown to pieces, put yourself back together again, & stupidly take another step. I guess that's human nature. It hurts so much to be alone, that we'd rather blow up than be single .
Don't let other people's actions phase you. You are who you are, and always have been: nothing will change that. You believe lies so that you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself. People change, you have to move on and hope its for the better. Sometimes you let go of things, and wish you never would have. Never have empty promises or awkward conversations. Always hope for the best but, expect the worst. Promises mean everything but once they are broken: apologizes mean nothing.
Sometimes you just need someone. Someone to make you smile when you're sad, someone to tell you you're beautiful, someone to look forward to seeing you everyday. Someone to call you every night, someone to say I love you and mean it. Sometimes you just need someone.
She's a summer girl - she likes things simple & she hates drama. She wishes she could wear flip flops year round and she hates being cold. She's moody during the winter cause things are usually falling apart. But then summer comes, it always does, & she realizes that she has true friends & that nothing can beat those summer days & nights that are spent with the waves crashing and the sand between her toes
"Oh she's nice, she's kind, innocent too. She's probably pretty, the right one for you. So just forget me, I'm only a friend. Though I'll be with you until the end."
You can't swim in a town this shallow.
You will never know how it feels to have the one person who means everything to you make you feel like you're nothing .
It's just one of those days when I feel like I could be prettier. Better. And it's just one of those days that I'm at war with calories and every girl in the magazines represents someone I want to be, anyone but who I am.
Remember when we used to say " no matter what , things will always be this way . "
I think I love you. I know we aren't together anymore, but you're all I think about. I miss you terribly & everything reminds me of you. I know it's wrong, but when I'm with other guys, I wish it was you.
This girl is just like any other ordinary girl. Just like any other girl, she cries her eyes out every night, looks up at the stars
& turns to God to wish that he would look her way one day. This girl made her mistakes & learned her lessons, got her
chances & lost them. She's had her smiles & her frowns; she knows that he keeps the truth from her & the truth hurts.
He says ''I love you'' with that face but she knows that he never meant one of those three words. The day that he means it,
she'll know because it'll be different, sound different because he'll actually mean it. And that day will be never come. So this
girl should just fall asleep & never wake up, because she's happiest in her dreams.
All the things they thought she'd never do - she did.
All the morals she once had, the beliefs - they're dead
All the things they thought she'd never say - she said.
As she's letting all the popularity get to her head.
She used to be so innocent, so much more down to earth -
now seems like all she wanna do, is make everyone else hurt.
She thinks that its her right, because all the pain that she's endured,
but she has got it wrong and all she wants is to be heard
but she was heard so long ago, now its just a cry for help
she's livin for all the 'cool' kids, she's not livin for herself
dont wanna go back to the way it was, she dont like rejection
she's nothing but a high class wannabe, lookin to be accepted.
Maybe some rumors are true, or maybe, they're as fake as the people starting them. But in life if you don't stand for something, you will fall for everything; and if you keep trying to be everything you're not, you'll end up missing out on everything you were meant to be. "
Look at all the pictures of the past, thinking of how this year went by so fast. The dances, the parties, the jokes, the laughs, the shoulders to cry on, cute photos, the people i've known since way back when, the new kids that came every now and then, the friendships you make come and go, but there's always those few you'll always know. Now as we go our seperate ways, i know i'll never forget those days .
The rest of your life is a long time, and whether you know it or not it's being shaped right now. You can choose to blame your circumstances on fate or bad luck or bad choices or you can fight back. Things are always not going to be fair in the real world. That's just the way it is but for the most part you get what you give. Let me ask you a question - what's worse: not getting everything you wish for or getting it, and finding out it's not enough. The rest of your life is being shaped right now with the dreams you chase, the choices you make, & the person you decide to be. The rest of your life is a long time and the rest of your life starts right now. the choices we make can define the rest of our days.
god i know your awake, just give me a break
cause time keeps washing
away, i feel im lost in today.
i climb up one step but i fall down a flight
i'm the girl who wants to be loved by you .
the best time to make someone mad at you is when you have their stuff.
dealing with backstabbers, there is one thing i learned. they're only powerful when your back is turned.
you change for two reasons : either you learn enough to want to . or you've been hurt enough , that you have to .
you want it , we got it . you dream it , we rock it .
you talk it , we live it. your jealous , admit it .
Donít be afraid of death , be afraid of an unlived life ...
You donít have to live forever, you just have to live.
" I do what I do, and I like what I like, and that's just who I am. "
- Brooke Davis
tonight will be the night that i will fall for you over again.
don't make me change my mind or i won't live to see another day.
here's to the nights where the sand is your seat
the waves kiss your feet, your friends outnumber the stars,
and even the chilliest of nights, are still warmer than
the cold one in your hand.
you were the last thing my heart expected .
You don't know about my past, and I don't have a future figured out.
And maybe this is going to fast, and maybe it's not meant to last.
But what do you say to taking chances
nobody said it was easy , nobody said it would be this hard .
maybe i could have loved you better.
maybe you should have loved me more.
maybe our hearts were next in line.
maybe everything breaks sometimes.
Death gives you heartache that no one could heal.
Love gives you memories that no one could steal.
I lie on the grass, breathing in the silence, listening to the night, looking up at the stars. I look up at the night sky and I wonder about life, about you, about why I'm here. And I look up at those cold, beautiful stars, so far away, and I realize life has never seemed so big.
It breaks your heart when people you know, become people you knew. When you can walk right past someone as if they were never a huge part of your life. You used to be able to talk to each other for hours, and now you can barely look each other in the eye. It completely breaks your heart to know that things change and there's nothing you can do.
They say friendship is all about the ones who said, "I'll be there for you" and proved it. And the truth is, not everyone proves it. Actions speak louder than words.. what you do - and not what you say - is what people remember. I think we've all learned a thing or two about who our real friends are this year, and it turns out .. "Best Friends" is easier said than done.
There comes a point in life, when you get tired of chasing everyone and trying to fix everything. But it's not giving up. Simply realizing that you don't need certain people.. if they don't need you. Don't be reckless with other peoples' hearts; don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.
The cracks in the concrete are just constant reminders that you fall apart no matter how strong you are.
Life doesn't always turn out to be your fantasy. That's why you need friendships that are real to get you through it.
It's never easy to understand why memories hold our hand, but people let go.
"So what you're saying is, I'm your brand of heroin?" I teased trying to lighten the mood.
He smiled swifty seeming to appriciate my effort. "Yes, you're exactly my brand of heroin."
" never let love get in the way of your happiness "
On the outside , you know you're not the same naive kid anymore. You've been through too much lately but deep down at your core - ther'll always be that part of you that refects reality that is eternally hopeful.
I was just looking at him when something happend. It wasn't an explosion of emotions or the butterflies of love in my heart. It was more of a slow and subtle creeping of feelings that finally when there was enough of them , it leaked into my heart and i had noticed him differently.
Sometimes the feelings we start to have again are the same ones , same feelings that never really went away .
The biggest mistake you can make is drifting apart from someone you once had the time of your life with.
Friends change. Usually into everything they
said they wouldn't be. You just have to accept it
and realize everyone changes in their lifetime.
The challenge is to stay friends and prove to
everyone that friendships can last through anything.
See when you're mad, you don't miss people. So if you stay mad, it's like you
never knew them at all. That way you don't feel sucky about them leaving you .
Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing themself.
it makes me anxious to be away from you .
You can choose your actions but you can't choose your consequences .
Fear proves we are human , pain proves we are alive .
Scars prove the past is real , love proves we have a weakness .
" If you're lucky enough to be different from everybody else , don't change . "
- Taylor Swift
let's be honest.
sometimes there is nothing harder in life
than being happy for somebody else.
- sex and the city.
i'm not afraid of heights, i'm afraid of falling .
i'm not scared of the dark, i'm scared of what's in it .
i'm not scared of water, i'm scared of drowning .
i'm not scared of people, i'm scared of loosing them .
i'm not afraid of commitment, i'm afraid of getting broken .
i'm not afraid of love, i'm afraid of not being loved back .
fine, i admit it - you're the guy i can't stop thinking about ,
the guy who makes me wanna scream ,
the one who can make my day in a million ways .
In case you're wondering , yeah . That guy is you .
When you do something right - no one remembers .
But when you do something wrong - no one forgets.
I love you and I probably always will. but we go DAYS without having a meaningful conversation !
And I used to miss you so much when that happened. But it never seemed like you missed me ,
and I guess because of it , I stopped missing you .
-one tree hill
but sometimes, we just have to be happy with what people can offer us. even if it's not what we want, at least it's something. you know?
- sarah dessen ; lock and key
sure - you have history with her , but you have chemistry with me .
and i've been dying to know -
who is your heart beeting for ?
is it for me or is it for her ?
never bend your head, always hold it high. don't be afraid to look the world straight in the eye.
nothing compares to the stomach aches you get, from laughing too hard with your best friend.
I can't promise that I'll solve all your problems, but i will promise you won't have to go through them alone.
I don't know why we all hang onto something when we know we're better off letting go. It's like we are scared to lose what
we don't even really have. some of us say we'd rather have something than absolutely nothing, but the truth is, to have it
halfway is harder than not having it at all.
" What I wanted? I wanted you to fight for me. I wanted you to tell me there was nobody else you could ever be with and that you'd rather be alone than without me, but that won't happen!? will it?.. "
If Iím not out burning bridges, Iím buying matches.
I'm scared to get too close to people. Whether they're friends or whatever. It
seems that every time I get close to someone, they always have to go away.
Maybe it's to teach me how life goes on and how I shouldn't depend on
people. Or maybe, I just trust the wrong people.
"Just because somebody doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with everything they got . "
i remember someone old once said to me that "lies will lock you up - with truth the only key . "
its a typical love story, we started out as friends, we met way back when.
what if the love of your life, told you he was leaving forever?
what if you woke up, and realized all your friends had moved on?
what if your best friend told you they were moving so far away?
what if everything you knew, suddenly was flipped upside down?
maybe you took it all for granted, and you wish you had it back.
