"I want you to promise me something. 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 then you go from there."
"It is not cowardice to put down the phone, to delete the text message, to delete their number. To turn and walk the other way when you see them in the street. You may tremble, you may cry, but slowly, slowly, your heart will heal. Give yourself time. Allow for the bleed. That is the bravest thing I know. The second bravest thing is how hard you’re trying. Keep trying. The brave conquer."
