If you haven’t stayed up until the early hours of the morning reading with your eyes itching and burning with tiredness and your vision blurred as you fight to stay awake to finish the book, you haven’t lived at all

"But if we’re lucky… we can seize the chance to make changes.
Sometimes, taking a chance can give us a second chance.
But what second chances always represent is hope. The hope that this time, you’ll get it right.
No matter what the obstacle."

Carrie Bradshaw (via whentheheartwaits)


People do change, people can learn and improve. They do get second chances.

Those chances do not have to be with me.

I can forgive and never have to speak to them again. I don’t have to give them another opportunity with me, the world gives them the chance to be a decent person to many other people every day. They should take the world up on that offer, but for my part? I’m busy with my life. Forgiveness just resets the clock to “total stranger” not “trusted companion”.


"I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings."
