Hey, (mood) readers!
Mondays are always hectic, so here’s a short post.
I’d like to start this weekly thing where I’ll post favorite quotes from books that I have read. I know I promised to do this last year but I was unable to cope up, so here am I attempting to stick to this again.
For this Monday, January 27th, here’s my entry.
“Nothing has changed in my life recently to explain this profound emptiness I’ve been feeling. Or maybe it has, and I’m just too afraid to notice it.”
“Sometimes when we’re alone, he looks at me in a way that makes me feel empty when he looks away..”
“I just feel like I’m full of all this untapped potential. Sometimes my chest feels hollow, as if I’ve lived a life with nothing significant enough to fill it. My heart is full, but that’s the only part of me that feels any weight.”
“Sometimes, you have to walk away from the fight in order to win it.”
“Relationships are hard for that very reason. Your body and your heart don’t stop finding the beauty and the attraction in other people simply because you’ve made a commitment to one person. If you ever find yourself in a situation where you’re drawn to someone else, it’s up to you to remove yourself from that situation before it becomes too hard to fight.”
“My mother was put through the most maddening, painful, tragic event of her life. Yet, as always, she put me first. Before her anger, her grief, the betrayal. She did everything she could to shield me from the truth, even if that meant unfairly taking the blame.”
“Teenagers think their parents should have it all figured out, but the truth is, adults don’t really know how to navigate life any better than teenagers do.”
