Rose Kennedy on Grief - It has been said that time heals all wounds. I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind protecting it's sanity, covers them with scar tissue, and the pain lessens, but it is never gone.
Don't depend too much on anyone in this world. Even your shadow leaves you when you're in darkness.<<<-- maybe in darkness your shadow is simply wrapping around you in a hug. It's okay to trust people, just don't unhealthily do so.
when someone walks out of your life, let them. there is no use in wasting your time on people that leave you. what you make of yourself and your future is no longer tied to them. yeah, you may miss them. but remember that you weren't the one that gave up!
