“I love you” means that I accept you for the person that you are, and that I do not wish to change you into someone else. It means that I will love you and stand by you even trough the worst of times. It means loving you when you’re in a bad mood, or too tired to do the things I want to do. It means loving you when you’re down, not just when you’re fun to be with. “I love you” means that I know your deepest secrets and do not judge you for them, asking in return that you do not judgme me for mine. It means that I care enough to fight for what we have and that I love you enough not to let go and walk away.
i will never leave you.
❝ I was supposed to grow up, decide if I wanna have kids and start a family, grow old and I was supposed to have a lifetime of it. Now, that’s all gone.❞
“I just have to say it once. You just need to here it. I love you, Elena. And it’s because I love you that I can’t be selfish with you… I don’t deserve you, but my brother does.”
#the first time he says it #he says it for alaric #for losing his best friend #one of the few people he ever loved #and cared about #but the second time #is the real heartbreaking moment #it is the moment #when he realises #that not only his best friend just died in his arms #but his death also means that #elena is dead too#and this is when he just loses it #the only people he ever cared about #are dead#in an instant #everything he ever loved #simply disappears #leaving him alone#in a world #full of people that hate him #or want him dead #just put yourself in damon’s shoes #imagine that #in one second #all the people you love #die at the same time #imagine the pain #the grief
