Life is be too long to spend each day staring at a phone that doesn’t ring; life is too long to spend each day silently wishing your boyfriend or girlfriend treated you better; life is too long to come home to a house each day and be unhappy with who you are sharing it with. Life is too long to be unexcited about who you share your heart with."
