I’d spend nights lying awake, thinking, if I just stay up 15 minutes longer, he’ll call like he said he would. Or if I just don’t bother him for a few days, he’ll take it upon himself to make a plan to hang out with me. And maybe if I forgive him for cancelling on me at the exact time we had planned to meet tonight, next time he’ll remember how understanding I was and he’ll try harder.
“There are 7 billion people on this planet who I have not met,
and 195 countries I have not visited.
Yet I am stuck in this insignificant town,
Being pressured into making decisions about my future,
When I barely even know who I am.”—Unknown (via rebreathing)
