Pursue love that’s willing to die for your salvation – the love that instead of a heart, has the cross as its symbol. Because when you do, your life will never be the same again.
He knows you deserve more and he’s scared you’ll find it so he keeps you hanging on by being the one who cares less because the one who cares less always has the most control. He is manipulating you. He is doing what he can to make you stay, to beg for his attention, to make you feel like you need him.
I hope you will not settle for less. I hope you will not commit to someone who will treat you less than your value
You will find love again. And it doesn’t have to be the same kind of love that you let go of, the one you set free for a reason.
Wait for the guy who proves to you just how much you mean to him because you shouldn’t have you keep holding your breath for someone who isn’t showing up.
I spent my time with you imploding and exploding, waiting on any reciprocity I could keep, until my palms were shredded with wounds from refusal to release the rope I tied around to hope that maybe you’d someday love me like I needed – like I deserved.
We want what we can’t have. The greater the push, the greater the pull. But that isn’t love. That’s simply wanting what you can’t have. And love isn’t a want; it’s a need.
Look for the guy whose jaws drop every time he sees you tying your hair in a mirror. A guy who thanks God every single day that he’s blessed to witness a living miracle unfold right before his very eyes.
Every time I look at myself the only thing I see is everything that you didn’t want and everything I couldn’t be.
The kind of love you’re looking for? Well it’s the beautiful, pure, honest, open love you deserve. The love with a good woman. And we’re out here. We exist and we’re looking for you.
