you don’t realize how attached you are to someone until you go without talking to them for a bit

Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone. It isn’t just death we have to grieve. It’s life. It’s loss. It’s change. And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime. That’s how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can’t breathe, that’s how you survive.
Once you’ve accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you.
If you fight like a married couple, talk like best friends, flirt like lovers, and protect each other like siblings, then you were meant to be. (x)
