I only want to feel this alone if I can actually be alone. I’m tried of putting faith into things that only hurt me. I guess it’s naive of me to let people close enough. I am somehow too open yet so jaded and closed off. I hate being lonely, but I need to be alone.
I just wanted someone who hated to see me hurt.. But apparently it’s everyone for themselves and they only like you when you’re of use to them. If you’re not you’re useless.
It’s a sad place for us dreamers.. Let down because our hopes are high and ignorance to reality is bliss. But don’t look me in the eyes, stab me in the back and smile in my face. If I’ve learned anything, it’s how to be alone.
Things are constantly changing.
One minute to the next things change.
So if there’s truth in anything, it’s that you just have to learn to embrace the present.
You cannot change the past.
And things are no longer as they were.
You may not be able to see the subtle everyday changes that occur but things are always altering.
You cannot change the future, for it has not happened yet.
When that time comes, things will not be the same as they are now.
So all you can do is take care of what is happening now.
Live in this moment.
Learn and grow from the past.
Prepare for the future.
Live in the now.
For THIS is what matters.
Take everything one moment at a time and suddenly you can enjoy them more.
Release the plague of regrets of the past and worries of the future.
All that matters is now.
