Up until yesterday, the only man I had ever received flowers from was my dad. 24 hours ago, I opened the door of my Lima house, to find a curly haired angel, with a bunch of Sunflowers. It is moments like those, that make me grateful for every negative relationship experience I have endured, just so that I could have been able to enjoy the beautiful ones. The best things come to those who have waited in Hell, and didn’t expect Heaven.
"If love is heaven, the hell is…" "Love too."

I was full of a hot, powerful sadness and would have loved to burst into the comfort of tears, but tried hard not to, remembering something my Guru once said — that you should never give yourself a chance to fall apart because, when you do, it becomes a tendency and it happens over and over again. You must practice staying strong, instead.

And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can’t ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older as you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it’s already happened.

would it be so bad, if i just let what feels so natural come pouring off of my tongue? How vapid it is to choke down simple truths because of fear.
