— from “The Holiday” (2006)

Iris: “…What I’m trying to say is I understand feeling as small and as insignificant as humanly possible. And how it can actually ache in places you didn’t know you had inside you. And it doesn’t matter how many new haircuts you get, or gyms you join, or how many glasses of chardonnay you drink with your girlfriends… you still go to bed every night going over every detail and wonder what you did wrong or how you could have misunderstood. And how in the hell for that brief moment you could think that you were that happy. And sometimes you can even convince yourself that he’ll see the light and show up at your door. And after all that, however long all that may be, you’ll go somewhere new. And you’ll meet people who make you feel worthwhile again. And little pieces of your soul will finally come back. And all that fuzzy stuff, those years of your life that you wasted, that will eventually begin to fade.”

    I believe that one of the best thing in life is to love and be loved. In other words you are’nt just giving your love to someone who ain’t giving their love to you. By: Nekayah Wright Jamaica West Indies. Send me a mail at prettygirlforever21@yahoo.Com. Tell me what you think.

    I think every woman in their life time has, or will feel like this just once. If t doesnt kill you, it only makes you stronger. right? ” And you’ll meet people who make you feel worthwhile again” – I really like tjhat part in this quote, becasue it is totaly true. for some crazy reason, we lose our guy, and think life as we know it is over..RIGHT! Like we are unlovable to every other man on the face of the earth. its true, breaking up is hard to do….

    getting over with someone you love is not easy it is one of the hardest thing you’d ever experience in life….but still getting stronger after the heart breaks is something were supposed to do..just don’t forget to leave something for yourself so that if ever it is the right time to meet the guy who”d love you unconditionally theres something you can give….

    getting over with someone sucks but it brings new perspective to us…

    I recently went thru a breakup with the father of my baby. I’ve been with him since i was 15, i’m 20 now. I learned that what you want is not always best for you and that you do have people that will love you and bethere if you let them. For a long time i wouldn’t, but now as one door shuts another opens. Cease your opportunities.
