Moving On Quotes

Instead, this kind of love is the one where I find myself wishing nothing but the best for you, with or without me.
I am still saving myself from the last time you came knocking at my door. I shattered my wrists to catch myself from falling. After you left, I patched up my own ribcage, bone by broken bone.

Well, I know it’s over but I still have feelings. I still get a prickly sensation that runs up my spine when I see you. You just try not to look at me, you try not to see the pain that is written all over my face. Instead, you laugh and have a good time. I don’t know how, I can’t read your face. I don’t know what you’re feeling and honestly that bothers me more than anything, but I keep going and for some reason you won’t let me fall out of love with you. It scares me because I don’t want to be in love with you, but I guess I am. I am very much so in love with you. One of those that you can’t fall out of love. It’s pretty lame, I know.

We’re too content with the way things are going, convinced that everything is finally turning out right and happily ever after is just around the corner. But it’s not. It’s that belief; that’s how we get stuck, broken, alone.

You can have the guts and the courtesy to tell a woman, to her face, that you no longer want to see her. Call me crazy but, I think that, you can make a point of ending your relationship in a manner that does not include an e-mail, a doorman, or a missing persons report. I think you could all get over your fear of looking like the bad guy and actually have the uncomfortable break-up conversation. Because, here’s what; avoiding that is what makes you the bad guy. And just so you know, most women aren’t angry, irrational psychos. We just want an ending to a relationship that… That is thoughtful and decent and honors what we had together. So my point is this; there is a good way to break-up with someone.
Don’t tell me you know how it feels. Don’t tell me you understand. Don’t tell me what you’re going through is the same as this. Just don’t. Don’t attempt to make this better. And don’t you dare tell me you care. Don’t lie to me, I’ve had enough of your bullshit. I’m living for myself now. You’re gone. In one ear and out the other, our time has come and passed. I just hope you’re happy.
