"there’s a reason why i said i’d be happier alone. it wasn’t cuz i thought i’d be happier alone. it was because i thought that if i loved someone and it fell apart, i might not make it. it’s easier to be alone. because what if you learn that you need love? and then you don’t have it. what if you like it? and lean on it? what if you shape your life around it? and then it all falls apart. can you even survive that kind of pain? losing love is like organ damage. it’s like dying. the only difference is death ends. this? it can go on forever."
