The people I have loved in my life have never been easy to love. I’m not used to normal. I’m used to disaster.
I have a strong feeling that the opposite of love is not hate, it’s apathy - it’s not giving a damn.
Learn how to be lonely. Learn what it’s like to know that you are coming home to yourself night after night—that empty is just another word for open.
