It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return, but, what is more painful is to love someone, and never find the courage to let the person know how you feel.
Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that Gift.
Love is when you take away the feeling, the passion, and the romance in a relationship and find out you still care for that person.
And sometimes in life, you meet someone who means a lot to you, only to find out, in the end, that it was never meant to be, and you just have to let go.
When the door of happiness closes, another opens, but often times we look so long at the closed door, and we do not see the one that has been opened to us.
The best kind of friend is the kind you can just be with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you have ever had.
It is true that we do not know what we have got until we lose it, but it is also true that we do not know what we have been missing until it arrives.
Giving someone all your love is not an assurance they would love you back. Do not expect love in return, just wait for it to grow in their heart, but if it does not, be content it grew in yours.
There are things you would love to hear that you would never hear from the person whom you would like to hear them from, but, don’t be so deaf as not to hear it from the one, who says it from their heart.
Never say goodbye if you still want to try, never give up if you still know you can go on, never say you do not love a person anymore if you cannot let go.
Love comes to those who still hope, although they have been disappointed, to those who still believe, although they have been betrayed, to those who still need to love, although they have been hurt before, and to those who have the courage and faith to build trust again.
It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone, but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.
Don’t go for looks because they can deceive, do not go for wealth because it can fade away, instead, go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright.
I hope you find the ‘someone’ that makes you smile.
