I want you to know that this isn’t a love letter.
I ignored the fact that I was losing myself in loving you.
No one asks when you’re happy in relationship, “Why aren’t you single?”
We’re brainwashed to believe that love has to be this overwhelming, insurmountable feeling towards another.
I’m looking for a Series D-cup to invest in and I like your specs.
I couldn’t live with myself not knowing myself. While being nice makes me likable, being inauthentic makes me hate myself. I succeeded in making other people like me, and failed at loving myself as a consequence.
So please, be the girl who still believes in love even after everything she has been through. After the pain and hurt you’ve felt and suffered, still love with all your heart when love presents itself to you again.
As far as we’ve come, people today are still confused if a woman is not married and beginning to start her family during her peak fertility years. We think we should be worried about her, and her life choices, and her happiness. Sure, women can work and have careers – but only if they are also mothers and wives, of course.
Every single person on this world has flaws and failures, everyone has times they don’t feel good enough and things they are unsure about, but it is what we do with those things that is important.
I will paint pictures and words that are inspiring and uplifting. I will let you shine. I will stop being envious of others (when I can help it). I will practice what I preach. My words and thoughts and actions will be harmonious.
