From Mai Osman

If you think that I didn't try to be the type of girl who would listen to your heart beat and interpret what you need, you are wrong.

It's true that I grew up afraid of sharing a bed and whispering I love you's before going to sleep, but with you I was willing to learn and I was willing to try again and again.

If you think I don't know love, you are wrong. I grew up with people who loved, differently but intensely, I was loved by the heart and I was loved by the head, and I have loved back, and I love you, I have loved you by all the ways I know how.

You may think that I carry my pain around like an armor to  keep away anyone who can fix me, maybe you are right but with you I was willing to leave the armor next to the nightstand.

If you think that by leaving me you didn't ruin anything that wasn't already ruined, then you are wrong.

Now my armor is back in my bed, now my armor is in my heart pinned with nails from every end.

Breathe Again

"It hurts to be here
I only wanted love from you
It hurts to be here
What am I gonna do?"

If you’re with her and you wish you were elsewhere then leave. One of the cruellest things you can do to a person is make them feel like home when to you they’re only temporary. We all deserve adoration and undistracted attention. We all deserve to feel complete. If you can’t give her your whole heart, then don’t you dare hold it hostage.

All I Want Is YOU

And I want you, I want you to know
All I have is you, all I need is you
All I want is YOU.

I hate you today

Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.

"I need to stop being in love with the ideas of what could have been. We could have slowly inched closer and held each other a little tighter. We could have laughed a little harder and fallen in love some more. There are so many things that could have happened, but didn’t. We almost were. We almost weren’t. We almost happened. Cupid almost won. But he didn’t. And we didn’t either."

For YOU...

"Maybe I’m scared to love, because when I love, it is never returned. Maybe I’m scared to trust, because I’ve never been put first. I’m always the one being left behind; the one who’s forced to feel it all during the night."

You're Going To Get Through It

You’re going to be sad.
You’re going to want to scream and punch things.
Do it.
Let out every ounce of anger you have.
Sit on the floor and cry until you feel numb.
Listen to songs that make your heart sink to your feet.
Write angry letters to all the people who have broken you, left you, ignored you or hurt you.
Throw your hairbrush at the wall.
Do it twelve times.
Do it until you feel like you can breathe again.

You’re going to be sad.
You’re going to want to hurt yourself.
Don’t you dare do it.
Sit on the floor and watch cartoons like you did when you were little.
Listen to songs that make you want to dance around your bedroom in your underwear at 3 A.M.
Make paper airplanes out of those angry letters and watch them soar into the fireplace.
Brush all the knots out of your hair and say “I am worth it” into the mirror.
Say it twelve times.
Say it until you feel like you can breathe again.

You’re going to be sad.
You’re going to get through it.

You Say It Loud

"If you love someone, you tell them. Even if you’re scared that it’s not the right thing. Even if you’re scared that it’ll cause problems. Even if you’re scared that it will burn your life to the ground, you say it, and you say it loud and you go from there."
Mark Sloan - ‘Remember the Time'
