Take a minute to think about all the things you've said and all the things you've done.
If you put them all together, it all adds up to one. One moment. The moment you realize your mistakes aren't failures. They're teachers.
At the limit of doubt,
you **** me with time, we fail again to plan a love that is almost done.

I’m too smart to fail
I’m too good to mess up I’m too pretty to be insecure I’m too talented to be doubtful I’m too perfect to be anxious I’m too loved to hate myself I wish this was the truth.
The failure in us both runs free;
Bleeding out from wounds of love, Snagged on broken bones of trust. The futile attempts in all of us.
Maybe if I hadn't tried
I wouldn't have failed
Look in the direction you want to go
Not at you feet You will just fall down Into the middle of the ocean But there are other waves In the sea Swim, swim, swim Paddle, paddle, paddle And try again
