“Hurting people are not healed through techniques. People experience emotional healing when they encounter someone open to entering a relationship with them and when they encounter self. It is an inner process, a relational process, and a heart process.”—Dr. Eliana Gil (liscenced play therapist)
At night, when I lay in bed and feel the breeze on my face, I think of you. When I wake up in the morning and roll over to the opposite side, I think of you. When I drive in my car and what I chose as “our song” comes on, I think of you. When I see a magazine at the grocery with your favorite actor in the tabloids, I think of you. When someone calls me a brat, I think of you. When I think about going to Chicago, I think of you. When I hear the songs you gave me, I think of you. I don’t go a day without thinking of you.
I don’t look at your pictures anymore because I don’t need to. I memorized the features of your face.
I get a tug in my stomach when I hear your name, even when it’s not you that is being talked about.
I always get the urge to call you and tell you something that I think you would find funny. But I don’t because I know you won’t answer.
“I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme. I hate it, I hate the way you’re always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry. I hate it that you’re not around, and the fact that you didn’t call. But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.”—Ten Things I Hate About You | Submitted by: aliciaa-mariee (via quote-book)
