Since then, the idea that love is not always enough has come up time and time again. I have been in love only a few times in my life, and with each ending of these relationships, it wasn’t about a lack of love, but simply the fact that sometimes you’re just not right for someone. Just because you love someone doesn’t mean you’re a match made in heaven. In fact, in some of these cases, it’s better to end it and move on, no matter how much it hurts. Because as Dad said that day, "Sometimes love isn't enough."

If you want to travel the world and skip the whole motherhood thing , but your partner wants to be a parent within the next couple of years, then you need to say goodbye. When it comes to the future — kids especially — no matter how much you love your partner, it’s not something on which someone's mind can easily be changed.

When it comes to the future — kids especially — no matter how much you love your partner, it’s not something on which someone's mind can easily be changed.

When someone you love is self-harming, it’s confusing, confronting, frightening and the feelings of helplessness can be breathtaking. You might not understand why this is happening, but you don’t have to. I wish we could give the people we love everything they need, but sometimes we can’t. Sometimes we, the world, it isn’t enough. This is scary for you and it’s scary for them.

Whatever their struggle, there are things you can do to help. You can’t stop their pain and you can’t change the feelings driving that pain, but you don’t have to. You don’t have to fix anything. You couldn’t anyway, however much you want to. The healing is theirs but your being there is so important. It’s enough – more than enough – that you are a loving, gentle support that holds things steady and makes the world a little less painful while they heal. 

Self-harming behaviour rarely comes with thoughts of suicide. People who self-harm don’t want to die. They just want to stop the pain to stop.

I usually take better notes. Or at least take pictures of the bits of a book I want to make notes on, so I don’t forget what I thought or felt later.

I failed, utterly, while reading Someone You Love is Gone by Gurjinder Basran . There was too much to absorb.

“Yet sometimes at night or just before dawn, I wonder if that baby died at all or if it crawled into my chest and ate my heart, tore it into small pieces and, over the past twenty-four years, tore it into small pieces and replaced it with its dead body. A baby for a heart, curled into a fetal position, sucking its thumb, cold as stone.”
