because sometimes it's there.

images : we heart it


my greatest regret is not getting out of a failing relationship right away. In the end it hurt us both and someone i once shared a life with... someone i knew with all my heart... is now a stranger. If we had done it right... if we had ended it earlier, correctly... less messy-- maybe we could have been friends.

because more than anything... i miss the friends we were.

---written as an answer to the question, if i ever regretted anything

i fell in love with "someone like you" by adele when marisa featured it (a great live version too). then claire emailed it to me again tonight. so beautiful, so heavy, so felt{isn't that the definition of nostalgia?}

"Regrets and mistakes, they're memories made,

who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?"

the futures i left behind... 

yet this one i am blessed with, i would chose a thousand times over

regrets will always surface after a relationship. just know that what could be in the future is not completely lost. there is time for what will be, to be.

i love this post. very real, we all go through with it. i think once i learned what the aftermath is when you don't leave once you know it's not working out, i've made it a point to be honest with myself, with both of us. it's not fair. i don't like to waste my time, i also don't like to waste other people's time. like you said,it'll hurt, but in the end, it'll be better that way.

I feel all these things about Masa these days. But in all honesty, I don't know if we would have ever been able to be just friends. Still, I miss him. Nostalgia is just a fact of life, right? Actually, as much as it hurts sometimes, I don't think I'd want a life without it.

That song is SO PRETTY.

you wrote a post that reads my thoughts.

and I was listening to that song earlier too, thinking of a future I left behind.

this, this is why I love you, M.

I think it's natural to revisit "what could have been" every once in awhile - it helps us reflect where we've come from, and what brought us to this point in our lives.

But the amazing reminders of the best decisions we've ever made are staying us right in the face. And the feelings that come from knowing this is irreplaceable.

It is tough not to wonder what would/could have been. I like the way Little Tree Vintage puts it though, there is time and who knows what may happen. x

Some people just take a hold of us... physically, mentally, emotionally and I have come to realize that know matter how far away you move from them them, they have just taken a piece of you a piece that can never be replaced... no matter how happy you may be in your present.
