sometimes on tumblr

i find things that make me cry.
it's rare, but it does happen.
somewhere between my taylor swift,
emma stone, supernatural, olivia polermo, gossip girl,
the oc, and joseph gordon levitt tags, i find things
that say what i wish could say in so few words
(but are usually more like five scribbled pages in my
journal circling around the same idea three thousand times).

Many people still confuse ‘attachment’ with ‘love’. Attachments are about fear and dependency, and have more to do with love of self than love of another. Love without attachment is the purest love because it isn’t about what others can give you because you’re empty. It’s about what you can give others—because you’re already full.” *
*i'm always the type of person that gives credit where credit is due, but i honestly have no idea what original source this came from. if you do, i'd love to know!

i love this maggie. i love the concpet of being in a relationship so you can give rather than gain. that is one thing i have noticed about my feelings towards luke. yes i enjoy being with him and would spend every minute with him if i could (which is the selfish part of it) but what i really love is being able to help him, to do things for him, to give him advice, to listen, to make him better (when in reality he is the one who makes me a better person). point is, i definitely give wherever i can, but he does too which means i gain a whole lot as well. it's sort of why i like him so much.
