The path we take sometimes leads us away from the ones we know and love but in the end what matters is that we affect the lives of others for the better somehow, whoever we are, whatever our story. Obsession always destroys what it intended to nurture but if you are able to let yourself love honestly and without fear then maybe that huge heart you have with somehow set you free.
"The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of - words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they’re brought out. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you’ve said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That’s the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a teller, but for want of an understanding ear."
— Stephen King
