I think one of the saddest things is when two people really get to know each other: their secrets, their fears, their favourite things, what they love, what they hate, literally everything, and then they go back to being strangers. It’s like you have to walk past them and pretend like you never knew them, never even talked to them before, when really, you know everything about them.
“This is an end. And then something new will begin. You deserve the best in life Lizzie. I know that sounds odd coming from a man who has brought you some of the worst. But its the reason why Tom had to work so hard to be that for you. To be kind, to be thoughtful, to make you laugh, to make you love him. Because you deserve that. And it will come.”—Raymond Reddington to Elizabeth Keen. (via secret-phoenix)
“I have learned that when sadness comes to visit me, all I can do is say “I see you.” I spend some time with it, get up, and say goodbye.
I don’t push it away, I own it.
And because I own it, I let it go.”—
