Don’t put your happiness on hold for someone.

Stop breaking your own heart by trying to make a relationship work that clearly isn’t meant to work. You can’t force someone to care about you. You can’t force someone to be loyal. You can’t force someone to be the person you need them to be. Sometimes the person you want most is the person you’re best without. You got to understand some things are meant to happen, but just not meant to be. Some things are meant to come in your life, just not meant to stay. Don’t lose yourself by trying to fix what’s meant to stay broken. You can’t get the relationship you need from someone who’s not ready to give it to you. And you might not understand WHY NOW, but I promise you, your future will always bring understanding of why things didn’t work out. TRUST ME. Don’t put your happiness on hold for someone who isn’t holding on to you.
Some chapters just have to close without closure. Straight up.

  3. I love this site and the quotes, but does anyone ever proofread? I am always finding errors, here’s today’s: “You can’t get the relationship you need from someone who’s not ready to give it you .” To give it you? I like to save some of these to send to others, but can’t when they haven’t been proofread.

    Otherwise, I love the quotes. There are so many that speak to me.

    1. Dear Jansi, It is unrealistic to expect perfection; in a person, in a book, in a newspaper and in this website. You will find mistakes everywhere. I am human. Look at the positive, the message and the beauty and remember this website is provided to you free of charge. Thank you for your compliment, I am glad you love this site. Brigitte
