    I had an extremely intelligent woman on EP send

    this in a private message to me. I believe she has posted it elsewhere in one of her own stories, but I simply had to share it here, too. If you see this, please know I found it extremely profound and have read and reread it so many times I've nearly committed it to memory...

    “We should love, not fall in love,

    because everything that falls, gets broken.” I hate this quote so much. Not just because some things don't break when they fall (bouncy balls for example), but also because it's called "falling" in love for a reason. If we fall, we are moving towards something against our own...

    Be careful who you open up to.

    Only a few people actually care, the rest are just curious.

    I learned true friendship is true power

    and with a little courage and wisdom you can conquer anything while jealousy darkens the heart and may give you "power" but eventually it all comes to an end and that is my interpretation from Hyrule Warriors (and every other Zelda series)

    I Am Proud Of My Heart

    I'm proud of my heart.  It's been played, stabbed, cheated, burned and broken,  but somehow it still works. There is nothing more beautiful than a person whose heart has been torn apart, but still believes in the beauty of love.

    Let go of the things that can no longer be fixed. If you force yourself to try and put them back, things will only get worse. Holding on is being brave, but sometimes moving on makes you even tougher.
