So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.
Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.
The Staying Philosophy (Everyday Isa)

Be with someone who acts like they’re still trying to get you when they already have you. Be with someone who sends you cute random “I miss you” texts. Be with someone who holds your hand in the car. Be with someone who randomly shows up at your doorsteps with flowers. Be with someone who grabs you and kisses you again after you’ve already said goodbye. Be with someone who gets overly excited when you call to say hi. Be with someone who you can’t stay mad at. And most importantly be with someone who’s proud to call you theirs.

The loneliest moment in someone’s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly.
