"“When things break, it’s not the actual breaking that prevents them from getting back together again. It’s because a little piece gets lost - the two remaining ends couldn’t fit together even if they wanted to. The whole shape has changed.” - John Green and David Levithan, Will Grayson, Will Grayson (via wanduring)"

I never reblog, but I must say that this bit here is slightly off. See, things break regardless. It’s a part of the cycle of life. Nothing lasts forever, but everything gets made anew. That little lost piece, whether it be good or bad, is gone. The individuals involved are making the classic mistake of trying to build the same thing again which, as history has shown, is not possible. Those two must be willing to rearrange those broken pieces into something beautiful; they must both understand that it won’t be easy and will take time, but that they can create something so much better if they really wanted too. The thing that really prevents them from getting back together is that through the initial break they realize it wasn’t love. Plenty of people have broken each other and still create a wonderful life, and it’s because they were in love.

I beg the question at hand when a person cannot seem to open their eyes or mind. It is desperately frustrating to deal with someone who is unable to see that they are causing themselves the pain that torments them. I have tried to be helpful and a good friend, but I am no saint; patience and mercy have never been my primary strengths. I have seen the edge before. I was certain I would jump at one point until the day my mind snapped, leaving me to rebuild from what was left. I gave months of my patience and mercy. I have no more to give.

Life has so much to offer to those who identify their goals, and learn to survive; enduring through hardship while never fearing pain. I want so much out of this life, yet the fundamental structure of society makes sacrifice a main pillar in the foundation of success. I will survive in this life. I have no other option. 

I need an outlet to deal with stress. I am not sure how much longer I continue on this current path, and it is not for a lack of care or effort. Difficult decisions define and sculpt the future of a person. I must clear my mind in order to make proper decisions. My will is crumbling, I feel like an eroded piece of land; never moving while everything else shapes me without my consent.
