Most people won’t admit it, or don’t even realize it, but
caring for people takes energy out of you.
Investing your time and attention making sure somebody knows
that you love them and that you want to ensure their well-being can drain you:
- even physically.
Love people, but take care of yourself.
Don’t burn yourself out.

Fall For You // Secondhand Serenade
Hopes held up high, will fall the second after. A perfect something is never true. What is real is how hope causes sadness, and sadness brings despair. The despair of never seeing things the same. I never understood how everything ends up the same way. I just close my eyes and imagine something beautiful to take me away from reality. A utopia where my dreams come true. A utopia of endless happiness free of pain and suffering. But this utopia is a fantasy that I can’t stay in forever. For I must face the truth that I can’t ever get what I dream of. I’m that one person the world seems to hate in the movies. The person who doesn’t win in the end. The one that never smiles. A person who sees the world in a different perspective. There is a hole in my heart that will never change after today. A hole everyone just steps on and ignores. That puny heart believed that one day things would be different. Yet it is too puny to realize the truth behind all lies. But now it understands that everyone is the same no matter their appearanc.
The pain of walking this road alone, is incomparable to the pain of this broken heart. This broken heart that has longed for you since day one, can’t remember how long i have longed for you. For you i was merely a shadow of your past, the past that you kept trying to forget. To forget the past was all but a dream, a dream i had was of our happiness. A happiness that you and I have never experienced, an experience of me being happy. Being happy was hard for me, hard for i lived a life of regret. Regret is as strong as a bullet, a bullet that shoots through my memories. My memories of my different endeavors, my endeavors to see you smile. For your smile was not shown to me, but shown to all of these others. Others who have brought you pain and misery, misery that you couldn’t seem to leave. To leave was all that i have wanted, but what i want can never appear before my eyes. For my eyes are blind by these bright light, the bright lights that you have shown me. I have been shown what it was like to die, to die i wish on no one. No one should go through a repetition of struggles, struggles you can’t seem to solve. To solve something means an end to something, something that ends is this story…
