❝ Maybe happiness is just finding the right people at the right time. But say you do find the right people—how do you love them without smothering them? How do you not suffocate them with all the love you’ve built up in their absence? ❞

— Simon Van Booy (via thunderpopcola)

❝ Your real first love will make you realize that your first love wasn’t really your first love. ❞

❝ People always fall in love with the most perfect aspects of each other’s personalities. Who wouldn’t? Anybody can love the most wonderful parts of another person. But that’s not the clever trick. The really clever trick is this: Can you accept the flaws? Can you look at your partner’s faults honestly and say, ‘I can work around that. I can make something out of it.’? Because the good stuff is always going to be there, and it’s always going to pretty and sparkly, but the crap underneath can ruin you. ❞

❝ I knew the second I met you that there was something about you I needed. Turns out it wasn’t something about you at all. It was just you. ❞
