"maybe she wasnt ready to get out. Maybe she still had hope-that it’d get better, that this time she wouldnt piss him off, that if she were thinner or wore more makeup or diff clothes or a diff hairstyle he would love her and the pain would stop" #quotes #love #relationship #goodreads#book #ifiammissingordead

“Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold you head high, look it squarely in eye and say, ‘I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.’”-

Ann Landers

“Love isn’t about attraction, not about infatuation, not about lust, not about gifts and the length of time you spent together. Bottom line? There’s no reason at all. True love is having to wake up each day feeling so deeply in love and overwhelmingly happy whenever this person is around you without even knowing why. Making you forget about the past, cherish the present and wishing the future would be spending your lives together entirely.”

Once you get your hopes up, your mind starts acting on its own. And when your hopes are dashed you get disappointed, and disappointment leads to a feeling of helplessness. You get careless and let your guard down.
