Do you think its possible
that some people
are born to give
more love
than they will ever
get back
in return?

i’m a very sentimental person.

i hold on to trivial little things that are attached to memories i’ve made with someone that’s special to me - like a ticket stub to a movie that i watched with you. i remember small details and the tiniest things they might’ve mentioned to me in passing, the sorts of things that most people might overlook. i screenshot funny text message conversations that i’ve exchanged to look them over later, in case i’m having a shit day &need a pick-me-up. i enjoy the simple things - for the most part, all you have to do is keep me company and i’ll have a pretty rad day/night. i’m a hoarder for tiny tidbits/memories.

the feeling that hurts the worst to me? when i fondly remember an experience/conversation we’ve shared together, no matter how insignificant or uneventful it might seem on the surface, &the person i’ve shared it with has no recollection of said memory/conversation. it always makes me feel like i’ve failed the other person as a companion, that my company was insignificant, forgettable.

in any sort of relationship, friendship, whatever, i always feel like i’m the person who cares more. like “you don’t even understand how much you mean to me.” I feel like i’m the person who always falls faster, harder, deeper, that at subtle points, i come on too strongly - as a friend, as a girlfriend, whatever. &i hate feeling like we’re on unequal ground. at that point, it seems as if any further contact i have with that other person is starting to become annoying to them.

whenever my “i’m probably starting to annoy them” radar goes off, the only way i know how to compensate is by falling back, and eventually fading away entirely. &then i’m stuck here knowing all about your favorite things, your preferences, the memories we’ve made &i never know what to do with them cause we don’t even talk to each other anymore.

It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think that yours is the only path. Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist (via kushandwizdom)
