Moving On Quotes
I can’t even remember the day I truly got over you, the day the pain went away and my heart recieved clarity. I can’t remember it but I’m so thankful. I’m thankful that all the wasted hours thinking of you and waiting for your call and the way you used me is all finally over and I’m happy. I’m happy to live life without you holding me down. Keeping my mind and heart contained.
After all these months, all this time, so much has happened. The talks, the phone calls, the laughs and the feelings. If I were to look back on them, I would never have believed that, that person was once me. I wouldn’t recognize that girl because she’s so different from me. But I guess changing and moving on is growing up, I’m growing up and finding out what kind of person I want to be for the rest of my life. And maybe in the future, there are more changes to come, but as for right now, this is who I’m proud to be.
I didn’t change. I’m still the girl who sits around and laughs at dumb things and walks with the biggest smile on her face. You’re just mad because frankly, I just got tired of the bullshit and don’t give a damn anymore. You’re just mad because I’m not sitting at home on a Friday night wondering where you are, or who you’re with. Sweetie, you’re just mad I moved on.
My heart didn’t break into a thousand pieces after he left. Instead, I realized all the things he didn’t do. He didn’t want to hear my stories, he didn’t ask me questions, he didn’t smile when I was talking to him, he didn’t hug me out of the blue to make me feel good. His hugs were always a preamble of something else, and after he was gone, I wondered if he ever knew me at all.
Sometimes you have to figure out that the people you care the most about just don’t care about you. Sometimes they have better girls, girls that mean more than you ever did. Sometimes you just have to accept that love sucks, and know that he doesn’t want you in his life. Sometimes you have to realize you weren’t meant to be, and you both can find better fits in your lives. Sometimes you have to accept that people lie. Sometimes you have to know things change, and life goes on.
Letting go isn’t about winning or losing. It’s not about pride. It’s not about dwelling on the past. It’s not about loss or defeat. It’s learning, experiencing, and growing. Letting go is to be thankful of themoments that made you laugh, made you cry, and made you grow. It’s about all that you have and all that you had. It’s the courage to accept change and the strength to keep moving. It’s growing up.
This is me letting go, it goes to show I hope you know that I’m not mad. Cause after all, everyone has to learn from their mistakes, and you were just one of the many that I’ll make. I built you up so high your head was in the clouds. Too bad you didn’t look down. And no matter how much you claim I mean to you as a friend, or whatever I am to you, sometimes you just fuck up and can’t go back. You’ll see this is the last song I’ll write about you, cause you’re not worth the ink or time.
People don’t stay in your life forever. Maybe he came in, you loved him, you learned from him, and now there’s nothing more for him to teach you. Maybe your time with him is done. Maybe it’s really time to just let him go. If he has more to teach you, he’ll end up coming back.
For the first time in my life I’m not worrying about what you’re doing or how you are doing. I’m not wondering if she makes you happy, or if you have even found someone to make you happy the way I did. I know I was the best thing that ever happened to you. I know you’re lost without me, and that’s okay. Because I realized that I am so much more without you.
The truth of the matter is that what’s done is done. No excuses are necessary. You can’t go back and change anything, so there’s no point in being stuck in the past. Excuses never work, you’re only lying to yourself and lying to yourself never helps anything. Eventually all the lies and the excuses and the alibis fall away and you’re left here, stripped with the truth before your very eyes, whether you’re ready to accept it or not.
I cant believe its taken me this long to figure you out. This time around is gonna be far different. You can tell me you’re sorry, but i wont believe you this time around like i did before. I now know that i dont need to get under someone else to get over you. I now know, it will just happen and that someday, im going to kiss someone, and its gonna be for me. He will fall in love with me and he will treat me better then you ever have. You say your love is irreplaceable but his love will conquer all and ill live happily ever after.
I thought I’d feel like a jolt of energy or something, you know when I got over you. I thought I’d feel like a lightening bolt go through me, and I would just never stop smiling. But that didn’t happen. I just woke up one day and realized that I haven’t thought about you in a while. And even though I’m not smiling like I should, I’m happier. I don’t have the weight of you on my shoulders now. I don’t have to think about you anymore, but you’re my friend, and I’m sorry but that’s all you’re gonna be. I never thought I’d say that, but I also never thought it would come to this.
People come, people go – they’ll drift in and out of your life, almost like characters in a favorite book. When you finally close the cover, the characters have told their story and you start up again with another book, complete with new characters and adventures. Then you find yourself focusing on the new ones, not the ones from the past.
There’s no such thing as a grown-up. We move on, we move out, we move away from our families and form our own. But the basic insecurities, the basic fears, and all those old woulds just grow up with us. We get bigger, we get taller, we get older, but for the most part, we’re still a bunch of kids running around the playground trying desperately to fit in.
