One day you lose something, and you say: ‘Oh my God. I was happy. And I didn’t even know it.’
sometimes when I’m in slow traffic I feel like I’ve made a bond with the person in the car behind me; and when they eventually leave I feel sad

People aren’t always going to be there for you, that’s why you learn to handle things on your own
but if I let you go, who will make me feel alive again?
Having anxiety and depression is like being scared and tired at the same time. It’s the fear of failure but no urge to be productive. It’s wanting friends but hating socializing. It’s like running a marathon with the will power of a corpse because you want to get to the end but you also want to sleep and evaporate into the soil and become compost for snails and flowers because then at least you’re useful.
You know what the scariest thing about loving someone is?
The fact they could just be lying the whole time about how they feel. Its just their words against the feelings flowing through your body. And one day they could just decide that they’re tired of lying, and they leave you empty and cold and they’ll take your heart with them and never look back.
