I have to remember this. I have a tendency to want to hold on to people forever. And when they don't want the same, I become hurt, and react by building walls. I am grateful for the time some people gave me.
I'm never going to be the girl who's OK with being controlled, and I'm never going to be the girl who's OK with being half loved. I'm also never going to be the girl who apologizes for those two things, ever again.
I hope this is true. Because to at least one person, you're going to be absolute perfection and they're going to fall in love with you. But before they do, don't be afraid to fall in love with yourself.
