Forgiveness is giving up all hope that the past could have been any different. - It is forcing yourself to accept it, no matter how much it hurts. Forgiveness is the slow terribly painful healing process for a deeply wounded soul.
"You're so beautiful" :) The way Anakin looks at Padmé is how I want to be looked at (though I would rather not be killed by my love because he goes crazy and thinks I've turned against him because of what his best friend/mentor said).
I am tired of trying to hold things together that cannot be held. Trying to control what cannot be controlled. I am tired of denying myself what I want for fear of breaking things I cannot fix. They will break no matter what we do.
