This goes out to a hopeless friend of mine.

I'm trying to figure out if the tenacity sometimes shown in unrequited love is foolish or admirable, or if it's even love for the matter, actually.

Though I suppose if you do believe that she is still the most beautiful person you've ever met after all these years, after all that has been said and lost, it is love.  It's a certain kind of love at least, but most certainly, not the love of your life--so maybe it's time to stop treating it that way.


Hit em with a little bit of crazy
Hit em with a little bit of love
Let them know that I'm not leaving

Looking at the stars in the sky
You feel that far away
Whatcha trying to say?

Show me where the love is grown
Try to leave my heart alone
You're the one for me
Do you know it?
You're the one for me
Can you show it?

Show me where the love is grown.

The Five People You Meet in Heaven

I finished The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom last night and surprisingly, I quite enjoyed it.  I think what I liked most was the cadence and tone of the narration; it's written in a way that seems like it's meant to be read out loud. The story itself can be taken lightly or deeply, and you don't have to be religious to appreciate its message.  In a nutshell, it's a book about decisions and connections--the ripple effect of the choices you make in life.  A lot of what Albom writes about are things that you already consciously know, but don't think about every day.

For example,
“Sometimes when you sacrifice something precious, you're not really losing it. You're just passing it on to someone else.”
-Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven

It's just nice to be reminded from time to time.

Why pamper life's complexities
When the leather runs smooth 
on the passenger seat?

The Waiting Game

It's been said that you should wait a certain amount of time before you start dating again after you've been through break up.  A part of this has to do with respecting your past relationship together and considering your ex's feelings.

After you break up, you do not have any obligations toward your ex.  It doesn't matter if you have been together for six months or six years.  If it was a bad break up or a mutual breakup.  If you loved that person or if you didn't.

The point is, you are not in a relationship with that person anymore and you are not with that person for a reason.  You do not owe them time.  The choices you make are your ownyou don't have to share them.  If you want to date, date.  If you want to wait, wait.  But don't wait for the other person to make their choice first before you act on your own happiness.  It's called moving on--and you can't move on if you're still thinking about how the other person feels.

And you know, maybe in moving on, it will help them in doing so too.

Yeah they love you when they need you
But someday you're gonna need to
Find some other kind of place to go.

A cheery tune for your lament.

How can pain sound so good?

I know I can change 
If we both get old 
Will you let me float away?

Why you're still hung up on your ex.

Maybe it's not the person you miss, but the memories.

And you have to let go because who you knew then, is not who they are now.

Everything seems like a city of dreams,
I never know why,
But I still miss you.

There she's standing in a field of lights,
I close my eyes,
And I still miss you.

Words of wisdom.

Life is too short for fake butter, fake bacon
and fake bitches.

That is all.

Isn't it bliss
To you right now
Don't be subdued
Say it out loud.
