"When you close your doors, and make darkness within, remember never to say that you are alone, for you are not alone; nay, God is within, and your genius is within. And what need have they of light to see what you are doing?" -Epictetus
Being completely shattered over and over again, getting all excitement pulled away from you repeatedly, getting used after being reassured it’s different this time.. Again, when it never is can become pretty overwhelming with self pitty and anger. But this quote makes me feel better, there’s more out that than what seems so important to me now. It won’t matter when I move on, when I see things in a different light, and when I finally buck the fuck up and get over it I’ll be fine. But right now I just want to be angry, but soon enough, I’ll be okay.
Eventually the fast text message responses will become slow. The long conversation will cut short. The attention they give you will become neglected. The comfort they give you will become something awkward. The time they have for you will become non existent. The feeling of being close to them will become distant.
