It’s okay to lose your pride over someone you love. Don’t lose someone you love over your pride.
“Wake me like coffee,
soothe me like a cup of tea,
you are all my warmth.”
— Daily Haiku on Love by Tyler Knott Gregson
Seek respect, not attention. It lasts longer.
Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something.

And sometimes I have kept my feelings to myself, because I could find no language to describe them in.
