"And I'd choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I'd find you, and I'd choose you."

“And I keep the photos of us on my wall. So everytime I see our faces and our smiles, your eyes, and my freckles, i smile. I see the photos on the walls and I give the memories the respect, the appreciation they deserves. Even if it’s long gone and we won’t ever have the moment back, I don’t erase our past.”
-n.c. // even though we are not the same people in the photo anymore, i still have love for them

Truth is, there are times you need to let a romantic relationship fade into nothingness. Sometimes, when a bond turns into a restriction than the release it has been all along, you need to learn how to let go gracefully. And sometimes, when you find someone who wouldn’t let life escape you, when you find someone who challenges you and drives you towards your dreams, you need to be aware of the fact that the moment you look at their face and feel that they’re done with giving you the kind of intensity they introduced in your life, you need to let go rather than watering yourself down to fit in. No matter how much you wish things could have been different, sometimes, someone doesn’t love you the same way they did last summer. And their “I don’t feel okay, I need you” goes from driving through state lines to be in your arms to “I’m sorry, I’ll be okay in a while.” And they don’t talk to you as much, they don’t take pictures of you anymore or watch you when you aren’t looking. They may still make the mistake of kissing you, but just not on your forehead or the at places where it hurt the most like they once did. And sometimes, that’s when you should remind yourself of the simple fact that the person you wanted to love and spend the rest of your life with has always been someone who wouldn’t change like they are in the first place. So let this be your reminder to collect yourself and quietly move on from a relationship like that. No more convincing them of how important they are to you. No more making efforts to make them realise you took down your walls and dove nose deep into building a strong relationship around them. No more telling them that you’re heartbroken. Just moved.
