“Why do people have to be this lonely? What’s the point of it all? Millions of people in this world, all of them yearning, looking to others to satisfy them, yet isolating themselves. Why? Was the earth put here just to nourish human loneliness?”
― Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart
Who knew I had to lose you
For me to realize
That everything I needed was right here all the time.
I’ll never forget the love we shared
No matter how you see me
Know that I loved you,
But time wants me more now.
I don’t need your approval.
Don’t need your voice.
Don’t need reassurance
I’m moving on from that kind of thinking.
I never knew I could.
There are so much more to look out now;
It’s all waiting for me.
And I think of all the others
Piled up in a cloud of dust.
I had a choice
And blew them all away.
It’s the end of the year, and I’m happy
But there is so much more out there.
Happiness is never permanent
But peace is
And faith is.
I told myself I would sink my teeth in
It’s not like I had anything to lose then
But here I am surrounded
By beauty and wickedness.
In the end, all I have is myself.
Might as well, learn to live with her.
There’s no point to cutting the cord of my soul.
I didn’t…yet here I am.
Yet here I am.
“Dear old world’, she murmured, ‘you are very lovely, and I am glad to be alive in you.”

“Because there was a hunger in me to see everything and do everything. I wanted to be everyone I saw. I wasn’t enough for me. Can you understand that?”
― Sidney Sheldon, Bloodline
“All my life I used to wonder what I would become when I grew up. Then, about seven years ago, I realized that I was never going to grow up–that growing is an ever ongoing process.”
― M. Scott Peck
“a person is a fluid process, not a fixed and static entity; a flowing river of change, not a block of solid material; a continually changing constellation of potentialities, not a fixed quantity of traits.”
