If a million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing.
One day, you will realize
that you don’t need to ‘get over’ your first love,
you don’t need to forget.
One day, you will realize that the quote:
“Everyone you meet is either a blessing or a lesson” is true
And you will realize that your first love
was both a blessing
and a lesson.
And that’s okay.
Once in a very long time you come across a book that is far, far more than the ink, the glue and the paper, a book that seeps into your blood.
With such a book the impact isn’t necessarily obvious at first…but the more you read it and re-read it, and live with it, and travel with it, the more it speaks to you, and the more you realize that you cannot live without that book. It’s then that the wisdom hidden inside, the seed, is passed on.
Everyone who terrifies you is sixty-five percent water.
And everyone you love is made of stardust, and I know sometimes
you cannot even breathe deeply, and
the night sky is no home, and
you have cried yourself to sleep enough times
that you are down to your last two percent, but
Nothing is infinite,
not even loss.
You are made of the sea and the stars, and one day
you are going to find yourself again.
