I'm Bethany. I’m 18. I’m from Michigan. I’m in love with the idea of being in love. I’m too sarcastic and gullible for my own good. I try my best to make everyone smile. I always care, even if I don’t want to. Altogether I’m kind of a hopeless girl who's losing herself between what she wants and what she needs.
And you tried to change, didn’t you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake… You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave. You are terrifying, and strange, and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love.
