Sometimes, I do fall apart too.

hi i'm
ann,

i sound much happier here.

I have a habit of falling too hard and falling too fast, and getting my hopes up for something that won’t last.

I’m terrified of seeing you with someone else. The thought of someone replacing me makes my body go numb and my heart shatter.

Take care of the people you love, but take even better care of the people that love you.

If you can look at the sunset and smile, then you still have hope. If you can see the good in other people, then you still have hope. If you meet new people with a trace of excitement and optimism, then you still have hope. If you give people the benefit of the doubt, then you still have hope. If the suffering in others still fills you with pain, then you still have hope. If you still watch love stories or want endings to be happy, then you still have hope. If you can look at the past and smile, then you still have hope. If, when faced with bad and told everything is futile, you can still look up at the end of the conversation and say “yeah, but…” then you still have so much hope. If you still offer your hand of friendship to those who have touched your life, then you still have hope. If you refuse to let a friendship die or accept that it must end, then you, very much, still have hope.

I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.
