Let yourself be scared, just for a moment. Let yourself feel that fear running through your body, the promise of possibility. Because where you feel fear is where you grow.
Even in the moments where we feel the most purposeless, the most directionless, the most off-track, our God is reaching out to us with His open hand. He is searching for us, beckoning to us, waiting for us. He is here.
If someone loves you, they’ll love you. They’ll love you in all the ways you need. They’ll love you in all the ways they know how. They’ll love you, and prove this love, over and over because they don’t want to lose you. That’s real love.
Because when someone loves you—it’s not about them trying to fix you, change you, or fall in love by a certain time. There aren’t rules, aren’t guidelines, aren’t ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts.’ Love is something that comes naturally.
Meet people. Go on dates. Try new places. Eat new foods. Figure out what kind of person you’re into and what you really value in a relationship. Learn what things you can’t tolerate and what makes you giddy with excitement. Talk to people. Open up. Love wildly.
When you start saying ‘yes’: that’s when you truly live.
When you were young, love was inherent and infinite.
I will be the one who believes in you when you forget how to believe in yourself.
And isn’t that wrong, but so beautiful? How we bend and break and reshape the contours, the curves, the chaos in our minds to match another’s?
You listen to both your heart and head.
