I could pick thousands of quotes or lyrics that mean something to me, but one in particular goes:
"Everything I’ve ever let go of has claw marks on it."
It’s such a brief, but powerful and painful, message. I’m not someone who lets things or people go very easily, especially if they mean something to me. I’ll fight, even in silence. So if (or when) I lose, these hypothetical “claw marks” show the battle I went into, trying to make whatever or whoever it was stay.
