"You have to decide if you'll bloom or if you'll wither."
Some of my scars will always show, whether I want them to or not.
Her embrace is the only thing that gives me the courage to say what I want, mostly because I know that I'm putting everything on the line.
"Just wait," Auntie says. "Wait and see what blooms for you."
"You have to decide if you'll bloom or if you'll wither. Put down roots or you'll die."
"All I know is that it's the good memories that cut the deepest, because those are the ones where you remember what you've lost."
"The thing about being pushed away is that it feels a little bit better when you get to do it to someone else, too. That way you're not hurting alone."
Thank you Wunderkind PR for sending me a review copy in exchange for an honest review!
