Dustin shook his head and sighed. People were starving, wars were being fought all over the world, so many people were suffering. And yet here was an eighteen-year-old dropping two gs on some bullsh*t like it was nothing. It didn’t seem right that some people had so much when others had so little. He knew he shouldn’t go on principle, but when it came to Kimmie, Dustin’s convictions were like a bunny getting battered around by a bear.
I can totally understand where Dustin is coming from. Especially since he didn’t want to go to the party on principle. He only chose to go for Kimmie.

There are many things in life that can be explained fully with “human error”. Better known as human emotion.
If he’s giving you up, maybe he isn’t worth it.
This is a very simple and wonderful quote. It means so much. If a person who’s willing to give up on you without even hearing your side or your wishes, you can do better. Another great piece of advice with relationships that stuck with me is “He’s Just Not That Into You.” Movie and Book.
