I work part time because I usually go to school full-time. Due to an overlap in prerequisites I had to take a semester off as well as the summer which I usually do school through as well. I've never had this much time before and I have had so much time alone spent pondering this and that…I have always gotten “into my own head” quite easily even while living a very productive life but it's never been this bad. I have always been a happy person but recently I have been pondering my relationship with my girlfriend, my friends, my major in school, my job, moving out…When I found this quote randomly it put so much into perspective. I'm about to start working full-time as a CNA due to a feeling of nonproductivity and was looking up quote about staying positive at work since I know that's a stressful field. This quote made me feel so much better and I hope it can help someone else as well.
Between my best friend debating leaving her stalemate relationship for fear of the unknown and my Aunt sitting here absolutely bereaving over my uncle that just passed, this one hit me hard today.
“That's a chance you take when you get into a relationship. It's part of the description. Getting hurt is part of life, you can run from it your whole life and where will that get you? Running from pain just leads to more pain. Trust me when I say this because I know it the most. When you're to afraid to do something, you hurt yourself more because you feel like such an idiot when the opportunity has passed. A break up is temporary, regret is for life.” -me (Weritomexican)
I wanted to know what R/quotes thinks about it, and I hope this helps you out if you're confused about something.
And bam! The shine's off the apple. And that's when you find out that that pretty little girl you married isn't a pretty little girl at all. No, she's a man-eater. And I'm not talking about the “whoa-whoa, here she comes” kind of man-eater. I'm talking about the kind that uses your dignity as a dishtowel to wipe up any shreds of manhood that might be stuck inside the sink. Of course, I may have tormented her from time to time; but, honest to God, that's what I thought marriage was all about. So much so that, by the end of that relationship, I honestly don't know who I hated more – her or me? I used to sit around and wonder… why our friends weren't trying to destroy each other, like we were. And here, it turns out, the answer's pretty simple: They weren't unhappy. We were.
