I self-destruct every relationship so that I don't get hurt, but in reality I just hurt myself worse in the long run.
If you don't value your life start smoking, you'll die ten years early. Or, start drinking to excess every day, you'll die fifteen years early. Or you could love someone who doesn't love you back, you'll die every day.
You've got to believe you are worth more than being repeatedly hurt by someone who doesn't really care about you.
Loving someone who doesn't love you back is like hugging a cactus. The tighter you hold on, the more it hurts.
It's not the goodbye that hurts. It's the flashbacks and the memories that follow.
If you love her, never fill her ears with lies, her mouth with words, her eyes with tears, her mind with confusion and her heart with pain.
Another person will not hurt you without your cooperation; you are hurt the moment you believe yourself to be.
Surely the saddest thing in the world is falling out of love - if once one has ever fallen in.
Music I heard with you was more than music, and bread I broke with you was more than bread. Now that I am without you, all is desolate; all that was once so beautiful is dead.
