"A good relationship is when two people accept each other’s past, support each other’s present, and love each other enough to encourage each other’s future. So don’t rush love. Find a partner who encourages you to grow, who won’t cling to you, who will let you go out into the world, and trust that you will come back. This is what true love is all about."

Was with this up until the true love part. I’ve never really understood it when things say ‘this is what true love is…’ because surely it’s an individual idea, and will vary from person to person. Sure, this might be the definition for one person but it might not be for another. Just sayin’.
"I need to be alone. I need to ponder my shame and my despair in seclusion; I need the sunshine and the paving stones of the streets without companions, without conversation, face to face with myself, with only the music of my heart for company."
— Henry Miller
"If you’re happy in a dream…does that count? The happiness–does it count?"
— Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things
