Maybe that’s what it all comes down to. Love, not as a surge of passion, but as a choice to commit to something, someone, no matter what obstacles or temptations stand in the way. And maybe making that choice, again and again, day in and day out, year after year, says more about love than never having a choice to make at all… Love is the sum of our choices, the strength of our commitments, the ties that bind us together.

We must all get our hearts broken sometimes. This is a good sign, having a broken heart. It means we have tried for something.
— ‘Eat Pray Love’ by Elizabeth Gilbert (via quote-book)
How long am I going to beat my head against the wall, getting all excited, getting my hopes up every time he looks at me? I’m like a bad joke. I get stepped on, I come back for more. I get shoved aside, I come back again. What the hell am I doing waiting for him? I have to get it through my thick head that it’s just not going to happen.
