"I think there are some people you will just never forget. No matter how many miles stretch between you, no matter how many years unravel in the space, you will defy distance, beat borders, trick time, and continue to exist in each other’s worlds because something that special can’t be broken down so easily."
"Breathe. You’re going to be okay. Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass
. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass."
"If you put your self-love in someone else’s hands, then you can’t control it when it breaks or when they toss it out. I wrote something down after a session with my therapist: ‘I don’t want to lose myself in fear of losing him.’"
