"some people are grateful when you offer them what they want most, but some people are terrified of it. because to gain your hearts desire you have to lose some part of your old life, your old self. to do that you have to have courage; without it you cant make the leap. and if you dont make the leap, you have only three choices: you can hate yourself for not taking the chance, you can hate the person for whom you've sacrificed yourhappiness, or you can hate the one who offered you the happiness, and blame them for your lack of courage, convince yourself it wasnt real. that way, you dont have to hate yourself. its always easier to blame someone else."
