It didn't matter what people thought about her. Her focus was never on small talk. She had better things to do with her life, like become a better woman. She didn't care what people said behind her back because most of them never had the guts to say it to
(The girl who seemed unbreakable broke, the girl who always laughed cried, the girl who never stop trying finally gave up. She dropped a fake smile as a tear ran down her cheek and she whispered to herself "I can't do this anymore" ~ Unknown)
when someone walks out of your life, let them. there is no use in wasting your time on people that leave you. what you make of yourself and your future is no longer tied to them. yeah, you may miss them. but remember that you weren't the one that gave up!
