"You’re under no obligation to be the same person you were five minutes ago."
"We were meant to lose the people we love. How else would we know how important they are?"

"It doesn’t make sense to call ourselves ugly, because we don’t really see ourselves. We don’t watch ourselves sleeping in bed, curled up and silent with chests rising and falling with our own rhythm. We don’t see ourselves reading a book, eyes fluttering and glowing. You don’t see yourself looking at someone with love and care inside your heart. There’s no mirror in your way when you’re laughing and smiling and happiness is leaking out of you. You would know exactly how bright and beautiful you are if you saw yourself in the moments where you are truly yourself."
"He fell on me like a wave.
But like a wave he washed away, leaving no sign he’d been there."
