“I wonder if you ever talk about missing me to anyone.”

“The problem is that we make people believe that love is a fairytale. We tell them that everything has to be all smiles or else it isn’t love. We make people fear arguments because that isn’t what love is shown to be. We have made it look so artificial, that not everyone believes they can find “true love.” But that’s not the case. It’s like the love you have for your family; you get into arguments here and there, but every inch of you still loves them. Things might not always be okay, but you know that at the end of the day, they will always be there. It’s not about everything being perfect at the moment. It’s about communicating through thick and thin, while making the best out of every situation. It’s about thriving whether it’s rain or shine. It’s about doing what you can because you know that it is worth it. That’s what love is; that is how you create your own happily ever after, while learning to appreciate what you have in your life.”
“Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.”
—Plato (via kushandwizdom
Stephen kissed me in the spring,
Robin in the fall,
But Colin only looked at me
And never kissed at all.
Stephen’s kiss was lost in jest,
Robin’s lost in play,
But the kiss in Colin’s eyes
Haunts me night and day.
—Sara Teasdale, The Collected Poems
