“No one is going to love you exactly like you imagine.
No one is ever going to read your mind
and take every star from the sky
at the perfect time and hand it to you.
No one is going to show up at your door on a horse,
with a shoe you lost.
Do you understand?
That’s why you have to love yourself enough,
so that any other love
just adds more candles
to the cake your’ve already iced.”
