I will not leave you as orphans: I will come to you. After a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; because I live, you will live also.
— John 14:18-19 (via thechristopherglen)
A healthy relationship is one where two independent people just make a deal that they will help make the other person the best version of themselves.

the only person who expects you to be perfect is you. remember that brokenness is beautiful, useful, and unpreventable.
I’m really struggling with letting you go. Is it even possible to love someone as much as I love you? Fear should hold no grounds for love, but I’ll be honest, most days I’m riddled with a fear that’s mixed in my affections. I’ll make a mistake by being with anyone other than you; at least it’s how it feels. What if you turn around and we could be together…and I’m with someone else…and why am I so afraid? I want to love other people, but I can’t because I love you and it’s all so soon it shouldn’t matter. Wait, no, I lied. I don’t want to love anyone BUT you, because right now that’s all I do, and I’m sorry, but I’m also not because what we had was real, you know, but you got scared and you ran like you always do and now I’m standing in the middle of emptiness with my hands at half-mast wondering, why this time? Why now when we finally had the perfect chance to work? Why it is that you screw up the best things because you’re too hurt to believe it’s real? I wish you’d wake up and see that if I could love somebody, anybody, it’d be you. It is you.

Why didn’t I learn to treat everything like it was the last time. My greatest regret was how much I believed in the future.
