“Saying you’re sorry is an act of strength. Apologizing says I appreciate you and your feelings and I am strong enough to admit that I did something that hurt you. Honest self-reflection is not for the weak. It is perhaps one of the greatest acts of courage. So is apologizing. It is not lowering yourself. It is not about power. It does not even have to directly relate to the transgression itself. It says, I see you and hear you. You are important to me. Saying I’m sorry is telling someone they matter.”

“Empty Spaces

I wanted to feel less.
To not be burdened by emotion,
To not feel sadness,
To not know loss.
I envied the inanimate,
The trees that stand proudly in winter,
Not missing their leaves.
I wanted to be weightless,
To not experience limitation.
I didn’t want time to pass,
The blur of days, months, years.
It moved too quickly,
I wanted to grasp on,
Hold it.
It eluded me,
Intangible,
Like light.
I wanted to preserve life before you were gone.
I didn’t want to know grief.

But the pain kept me connected.
It meant that I loved you,
It meant that I would always be a little broken,
It meant that our love filled all of the empty spaces.
It meant that you would be with me... forever.”
Jacqueline Simon Gunn

“His absence was a presence.
Who knew an empty space could take up so much room.”
Jacqueline Simon Gunn

“Love was feeling the person everywhere, under your skin, in every strand of your hair, in your heart, in your bones, in the tone of your voice when you said their name. Love wasn’t always about being with the person, it was feeling that your world was better just because they lived. Even if you weren’t ever going to be together, he was the air you breathed, invisible but everywhere.”
Jacqueline Simon Gunn, Where You'll Land

“He was footprints in the snow.

Not all loves are meant to last.
Some are meant to grace you briefly,
before fading,
somehow leaving the impression
that the world is just a little bit better
because you had been touched by
something so beautiful it was impossible
to grasp.”
Jacqueline Simon Gunn

“Her thoughts were like the moon eclipsing the sun.”
