"You try to hurt him, because you don’t care about him, but it actually means that you care more than he will ever care. He hurts you, but he doesn’t care, because he doesn’t know he is hurting you. He doesn’t think about you."
"Darling, I don’t want you; I’ve got no place for you; I only want what you give. I don’t want the whole of anyone…. What you want is the whole of me-isn’t it, isn’t it?-and the whole of me isn’t there for anybody. In that full sense you want me I don’t exist."
Elizabeth Bowen, The Death of the Heart (via feellng)
"You will fall in love with someone who’s cold and always seemingly pushing you away. When all is said and done, they will be forever known as the one person you couldn’t get to love you. Unfortunately, it will hurt and sting worse than the good ones, the ones that chopped up your meat for you and picked out an eyelash from your eye and were nice to your mother, because love often feels like a game we need to win."
Ryan O’Connell, The People You Will Fall in Love With in Your 20s (via feellng)
