(broken hearts)

somehow i could not ever completely let out in words how i felt. i have been waiting for some words to form in my mouth through my mind, but no words will ever come. i found this though on thoughtcatalogue and thank goodness i did, it is beautiful and melancholy.

a few extracts from On Being Brave Enough To Start Again by Kat George;

"...it’s the promise you make to yourself that you’ll never be heartbroken again.

It’s painful because you know it’s not you, it’s not right, and because your decision inhibits you from making contact the way you used to."

"You just don’t want to feel any of those feelings again—emptiness, sorrow, rejection—the ones that came from you letting yourself be vulnerable to someone else. You don’t ever want to relinquish that sort of power to someone again."
"So you’ll push the new ones away instinctively. Half of you will be relieved and the other half will pang with melancholy. You want to be braver—because when it comes down to the bones of it, all you really are is scared. You wish it was as simple as calling out to your mother and having her check under your bed and in the closet for the boogey man, but you’re on your own now, with no one to protect you from night terrors but yourself. You sometimes think the conflict inside you is tantamount to spilt milk and you feel petty and selfish, but you’ve become so accustomed to living on the back foot you don’t know how to leap forward anymore."
"You’re not a bad person—you know you’re not—you have so much love to give, but you’ve never feared anything more than giving it. It seems like such a shame and waste, but at the same time entirely necessary. You desperately want to be inspired again, to hold someone’s hand in the street, to have them brush the hair from your eyes as you rest your face on their chest in bed on lazy Sundays. You want someone to tell you they love you in the dim half-light of morning, you want someone you can cook dinner for, you want someone whose wounds you can lick... you let them all pass by you and around you, like wind whipping against your ankles. Your heart is still and safe."

That photo is gorgeous. I love reading Kat George's articles on Thought Catalog and this one was no exception - there's so much truth to it.

I actually went to the original post and read the whole thing. Absolutely true, and very relate-able to us all! I kept saying, "uh huh.." at every single line, ha.

I just loved the quote. I guess we all can pretty relate to that, at some point in our lives. So sad the time is now.

I love looking at your pictures, every set is so stunning, so peaceful. I guess I'm just tired, but looking at your photographs really heals me these days.

Thank you for delievering such a cute dose of peace.
