It is well sometimes to half understand a poem 
in the same manner that we half understand the world
One of the deepest and strangest of all human moods is the mood which will suddenly strike us perhaps in a garden at night, or deep in sloping meadows, the feeling that every flower and leaf has just uttered something stupendously direct and important, 
and that we have by a prodigy of imbecility not heard or understood it. 
There is a certain poetic value, and that a genuine one, 
in this sense of having missed the full meaning of things. 
There is beauty, not only in wisdom, but in this dazed and dramatic ignorance.

 G. K. Chesterton, 'Robert Browning'

If you would hold my hand, maybe the rest of me could fall apart. 
I could shed this extra grief and begin again.

If you’ve been through enough relationships, you begin to suspect there’s no right person, just different flavours of wrong. 
It isn’t until you finally run up against your deepest demons, 
your unsolvable problems—the ones that make you truly who you are—
that we’re ready to find a lifelong mate. 
Only then do you finally know what you’re looking for. 
You’re looking for the wrong person. 
But not just any wrong person: the right wrong person
—someone you lovingly gaze upon and think, ‘This is the problem I want to have.’
I will find that special person who is wrong for me in just the right way. 
Let our scars fall in love.

 It’s all messy:
The hair.
The bed.
The words.
The heart.

 Everyone is my teacher. Some I seek. Some I subconsciously attract.
Often I learn simply by observing others.
 Some may be completely unaware that I’m learning from them, 
yet I bow deeply in gratitude.

“Good Morning dear”
“How was your day?”
“Be careful”
“Text me when you get home so I know you’re safe”
“Sweet dreams”
“How are you?”
“I hope you’re feeling better”
“Have a good day today!”
“I miss you”
“Good night”
“Can you come over?”
“Can I come over?”
“Can I see you?”
“Can I call you?”
“You’re beautiful”
“Want something to drink?”
“Watch your step”
“Let’s watch a movie”
“What are you up to?”
“How is your day so far?”
“It will be okay”
"I’m here for you”
“Do you need anything?”
“Are you hungry?”
“I just wanted to hear your voice”
“You just made my day”

 You don’t have to hear “I Love You” to know that someone does. 
Listen carefully. 
People speak from the heart more often than you think.

Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. 
It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, 
or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, 
fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. 
The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. 
Everyone has their own unique journey.
