“Because I wanted you to know”
Her tears rolled down her cheeks as Elio said those words and repeated them to himself.

Some times you know you are just dragging things on and there really isn’t a point but you go on anyway — lying to everybody.
But maybe you don’t have the strength to stop.
Maybe you don’t have the strength to be better.
Or maybe you just can’t be bothered
and you’re not worth it.
Maybe happiness requires work and since you’re not putting in the effort
you don’t deserve it.
