"My heart didn’t break into a thousand pieces after he left. Instead, I realized all the things he didn’t do. He didn’t want to hear my stories. He didn’t ask me questions. He didn’t hug me out of the blue to make me feel good. His hugs were always a preamble to something else, and after he was gone, I wondered if he ever knew me at all."
"You have to be your biggest believer."
"There may be more beautiful times, but this one is ours."
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."
