and you tried to change, didn’t you? closed your mouth more. tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake. you can’t make homes out of human beings. someone should have already told you that. and if he wants to leave, then let him leave. you are terrifying, and strange, and beautiful. something not everyone knows how to love.

The emotional ache is so heavy you can’t manage - not without ripping the hair from your head and picking at your skin until it bleeds. It seems only logical to replace the pain that is complex and shapeless with one that is a violent red in colour and easier to understand.

Date someone who is interested in you. I don’t mean someone who thinks you’re cute or funny. I mean someone who wants to know every insignificant detail about you. Someone who wants to read every word you write. Someone who wants hear every note of your favourite song, and watch every scene of your favourite movie. Someone wants to find every scar upon your body, and learn where each one came from. Someone who wants to know your favourite brand of toothpaste, and which quotes resonate deep inside your bones when you hear them. There is a difference between attraction and interest. Find the person who wants to learn every aspect of who you are, and hold onto them.

So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.
Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.
