Bright Eyes - No Lies, Just Love
Conor Oberst - You are your mother’s child
Well the future’s got me worried such awful thoughts. My head’s a carousel of pictures, the spinning never stops.
Bright Eyes - Nothing gets crossed out
Well, the future spills its intangibles, an unknown set of variables, a path that’s split infinitely up ahead. So tell me what’s the use to pick and choose, from what you should or shouldn’t do? That’s time spent better sleeping in your bed.
Bright Eyes - We Are Free Men
There comes a point in our lives when we have to accept that we have no control in what the future holds.
There is never a “right” time to be with someone, to “fall in love”.
Life comes at full speed and we must accept what is thrown at us, whether we’re ready or not.
We can fall in love just as easily as we can fall out of it.. But sometimes, falling out is one of the hardest things we may have to do, especially if it wasn’t a choice we were on board with to begin with.
Sometimes circumstances force us to make decisions that hurt us or the ones we love.
Although we can’t always prevent loved ones from getting hurt by our actions, we must remember that we are all just trying to do what is best for us. Every decision we make should be to satisfy us, to make ourselves happy.
This means understanding that the decisions others make are for their benefit. And although it may sound selfish, the only person whose happiness should be considered is our own. Meaning that we need to accept the decisions our loved ones make regardless of the consequences, regardless if we get hurt.
There can’t be any double standards, we do for us and they do for them. The best way to get through it is by understanding and letting time take care of the rest.

Is that enough to keep me from crying?
My heart needs a polygraph
Always so eager to pack my bags
When I really want to stay
