When you plan to get even with someone, you are only letting that person continue hurt you but at least you get to hurt them too and that’s pretty satisfying.
- Carleen Roxas

You just have to get through high school. Cause high school sucks for anyone who’s the least bit different. & then there’s college, & out in the real world, you’ll find where you fit in.
-Grey’s Anatomy

Most of our life is a series of images; they pass us by like towns on the highway. But sometimes a moment stuns us as it happens, & we know that this instant is more than a fleeting image. We know that this moment, every part of it, will live on forever.

Sometimes despite all your best choices & all your good intentions, fate wins

You may see me struggle but you will never see me fall.

If you live to be 100, I want to live to be 100, minus one day so that I never have to live without you.

I must be a pretty good liar for you to honestly think that everything’s alright.

You don’t love someone because they’re perfect, you love them in spite of the fact that they’re not.

it’s not true that beer makes you fat. It actually makes you lean: lean on walls, lean on doors and lean on to the person you like.

Now I understand why some people get themselves drunk. It’s not because they just want to get wasted but because they want to escape each killing moment they spent every fucking night thinking about what’s happening with their damn life. Of course they don’t forget their problems; at least they don’t spend the night crying themselves to sleep.

Would you rather know or not know? Some say that what you don’t know won’t hurt you. But what if you know that you don’t know something? Won’t that hurt too?

In our world of wrong choices, someday, someone will come into your world that will make you say, “This time, I got it right.”

How could you make a move to tell someone what you really feel for him’ her if you already feel the refection even without words?

Do you know what happens when you hurt people? They may begin to love you less and begin to forget that they loved you once.

For once, I want to be reason why he cuts his hair just because I told him so, the reason why he eats something just because it’s my favorite food, the reason why he buys a shirt just because I have the same color, the reason why he falls asleep while holding his phone at night, the reason why he loves something he used to hate because I love it and lastly I want to be the reason why he smiles and laugh. I want to be the because of his every why’s.

I let him go but it doesn’t mean that I don’t love him. I’m just thinking of what might happen. Someday, in the time we don’t expect, we’ll just meet. And maybe, just maybe, it would be our time.

People get hurt when they fall in love so what’s the fuss about? It’s just love. Sometimes, I’m hurt when I see a couple happy because I remember the days I was happy with him. Well, they say that’s life. People come and go but the truth is they never go. They are still locked up inside of you and no matter how hard you get it out of you the more it hurts knowing that you yourself don’t want to let it out. Why is it so damn hard to forget while it is so damn easy to fall?

Which is harder, hoping that the one you love will fall for you or trying to love someone who loves you?
Both hard, isn’t it? But the hardest is when you fall for the one who loves you just when the one you love is finally falling for you.

People are trying to correct their lives trying to fit everything right, trying not to be wrong again. But we must remember that being wrong sometimes makes us a better person.

Just because I’m single doesn’t mean that I don’t know a thing about love. In fact being solo is a lot wiser than being in a relationship.

The things we lose always find a way of coming back to us in the end. Just not in the way we expect it.

You know what’s sad about love? It’s when you know that there’s no hope for you being together yet you still pray to make it work.

I was walking over a tall tree. Suddenly a fruit of the tree fell down on my head and it did hurt me. I was damn to look up at the tree and I realize, “do I need to be hurt first before I look up above?”

I saw him and I silently pleaded for a smile yet he looked away not knowing he broke my heart just then such simple thought, such simple wishes yet nothing seemed to come true. I’m sorry, I wasn’t thinking. Someday I’ll be the one to look away. He needs not to do it for me.

I don’t get it why a lot of people love happy ending so much. ‘m thinking, no matter how happy the ending was still it has ended.

While walking I heard an old lady say, “I’ve been in love with the same man for almost 50 years.” I was touched but then she said, “I wish he knew.”

Two of the shortest words in the English language are yes & no, yet they are often the ones that require most thought before they are spoken.

The worst loneliness is not to be comfortable with yourself.

Most of the time we can’t tell what’s wrong w9th somebody by just looking at them. After all, they can look perfectly fine on the outside while their insides tell us a whole other story.

Fate is like a strange, unpopular restaurant filled with odd waiters who bring you things you never asked for and don’t always like.

He isn’t my boyfriend- but I love his hugs, his smile, his advice, his love, his kindness, & the times we laugh together- I guess I fell in love with our friendship

All my life I thought I needed the perfect setting, the perfect opportunity & the perfect way to tell someone I love them but suddenly, I realized I don’t need any of that because I know it’ll be perfect as long as I’m saying it to you.

You only have 3 choices when it comes to love: give up, give in and give it your all. You just need to decide - which one is worth it.

If we’re perfect for each other, and if we’re meant to be with each other, we will be with each other. Maybe not now, or tomorrow, but later, and I can promise you that.

A couple was celebrating their 1st year anniversary. The man gave the woman a dead rose attached 2 it. The woman felt insulted & slapped d man. Sad part is, the note read: “this s me w/o you.”

Someday I’ll die. No more talks, laughter and tears. But there will always be traces to live by. If I die surely my life would end but when I die, you can still continue talking and I’ll listen.

You’re the reason I live, you’re the reason I’d die, you’re the reason I smile yet breakdown and cry. You’re the reason I keep going and the reason I fall. But without you in my life, I’m nothing at all.

Some people are plain fools, some are really stupid. When you love someone who doesn’t love you back desperately, you are a fool. If you don’t have any idea that somewhere, somebody loves you, you’re stupid. Admittedly, I know I’m a fool. I just hope that you aren’t stupid.

Everyone in this world is different, but the people who are truly brave enough to show their differences are considered embarrassing or not normal. Maybe, the “normal” people in this world are just scared to show who they really are…

Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.
-Oprah Winfrey

If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever.
-Winnie the Pooh

If you think a guy is too good to be true, then he is
-Oprah Winfrey

One night, they argued. The next day, the guy gave flowers and chocolates. They sat and looked at the stars.
GF: “is this your way of saying sorry?”
BF: “no, this is my way of saying goodbye.”

What’s the hardest part in ending a relationship? Not the feeling of letting go, not the part of goodbye, but going through every damn day and having to remember it.

We don’t choose the person we fall for or get attracted with…it just hits us like a speeding bullet and… BANG!!! We couldn’t feel it at first, unless we see ourselves bleeding…

We used to think that life is a fairytale: full of magic, exciting, vivid! But that was a long time ago… Now we know that there’s more to life than just “happily ever after…”

We’ve learned that we get wiser each day…And no fairy can lead us to happy ending. We decide, we struggle…And somehow we begin to understand…That we have the power to make each day better than yesterday.

Always make your absence felt; in such a way that somebody misses you. But let not your absence be so long that somebody starts to learn to live without you.

1 Being broken hearted is like having a broken pair of ribs… on the outside, it looks like there’s nothing wrong but every breath hurts…

Waiting for someone you love is never easy. It may even be irrelevant especially if the one you love isn’t aware that you’re waiting…

it’s hard to fall in love again, when you’re still attached to your past. You must learn to let go and open your heart to someone else. It’s not easy to do but sometimes, you just have to.

It's best to wait for the one available, best to wait for the one you love than the one who’s around, best to wait for the right one because life is too short to be wasted on the wrong one.

When you love, you thought you would never get tired. You thought it would never end. But sometimes, you need to be tired to realize that love too can end especially if it wasn’t meant to be.

You are the reason why I have sleepless nights. You are the reason why I tend to hold my pillow tight. It’s you that I’m thinking when I lay down at night. And you are the reason I can’t sleep without saying goodnight.

You wanted friendship, I gave it to you. You wanted me to care for you, I did. You made me fall in love with you, I fell for you. You wanted to break my heart, I’m giving it all to you coz I’ll always love you.

Somewhere in your heart try to find a place for me, somewhere in your heart I won’t care where it would be. One little corner might not mean so much to you, but one little corner is all I ask of you.

When you truly care for someone, you don’t look for faults, you don’t look for mistakes, instead you fight for the mistakes, you expect the faults and you overlook the excuses.

People seldom say I love you. And when they do it’s either too late or the love is gone. But when I say I love you, it doesn’t mean you have to stay but I wish you’ll never go away.

Would you be kind to let yourself be my teddy bear? Someone I could hug, I could kiss, I could cry on. But don’t worry about looking for your own teddy bear because you already got me.

Everyday I walk towards you, hoping that I’d somehow get to be with u, for at least a moment. But it’s hard for me to catch up with you if you’re also trying to catch up with someone else.

You’re someone who’s different, but who wants to be the same as everyone else. And that, in my view, is a serious illness.
