So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.
Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.
— The Staying Philosophy (Everyday Isa)
you and I both know we were never ‘just friends’,
there was nothing platonic about the way my hands would shake for days after you’d touched them.
