After I read this book, which was amazing by the way, I kept coming back to this quote, because that’s exactly the way I fall in love. It starts slowly, a steady descent, so slow that you don’t even notice it. And then you wake up one day and realize that your someone is your someone and that you are batshit in love with them. That’s how I fell in love with Andrew; slowly, and then all at once.
I found this quote on Pinterest when I was sad and looking for sad quotes to be all moody about while listening to sad music and trying my hardest to dig myself into a hole made just for pouting and feeling sorry for myself. And so I found this and I just stopped and stared at the screen, feeling like I’d been hit in the face with some truthy bullshit I should have realized long before, because yeah, the terrible doesn’t last forever. It has an expiration date.
My yoga instructor said this in the middle of class a few weeks ago and I’ve been repeating it to myself every since because sometimes you’ve got to let things. Most of the time, I’m clinging to things with a death grip, whether it’s the way things were or schedules or having the perfect run and, as it turns out, clinging to shit so tightly doesn’t really help anything.
