This is unlike the story it was written to be. I am riding its back when it used to ride me.
I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone.
Robin Williams (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
This is important and I didn’t even realize how true this is until just this very moment. I spent a few years with someone I loved very much and whom I believe loved me in his own way. Throughout my time with him, in spurts, I would feel alone because of the distance and the fact that I felt I was never worth any effort from him—or at least any effort that required anything more than driving two hours. There was no motion to change his life or be closer or move forward despite years of talk and when he decided he needed to get out and do something, he wanted to do it without me (but with, you know, a lot of random girls he’d fuck around town, but that’s another issue entirely). The point is that I felt alone with someone I gave everything to, and that I (incorrectly) felt I wasn’t worth anything, because of the way he treated me.
This quote is everything. I hope I never forget it.(via stephaniebreijo)
