Quotes on Heartbreak

I’d like to believe that one day, I’ll wake up and not miss him anymore. That I’ll finally understand that when he broke my heart, it was for a reason, one I don’t understand just yet. And when I do, I’ll see he messed up, not me.

The most painful realization a woman can have is to know that her man is happiest without her.
-Maya Tan-

I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken -- and I'd rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived.
-Margaret Mitchell-

Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life. You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.
-Neil Gaiman

Today is different... I don't look at you the same. I don't look at you and say to myself "I wish he'd love me" because this morning when I woke up it just clicked... just like that. I realized that you can never love me. You won't let yourself. But that's all on you, not me, it was your decision, not mine. So if one day you'd think "I wish she'd love me" remember that day when you told me that we'd never be anything more than friends.
