Be Proud Of The Way You Love Deeply

happy girl, loving deeply, be proud of how you love
Marcelo Matarazzo

If there’s one thing you should always keep in mind, it’s this: Never change the way you show your love. It might be terrifying and risky to be different in a world where everyone is playing the same game in dating, but keep following what your heart is saying.

Keep doing what you think is right for you. Don’t be afraid to carry yourself as you step out of your home. Wear your principles in life like a badge of honor. Show the world your personality and don’t let anyone intimidate you from shining bright.

Don’t let the opinions of others discourage you to pursue your voice, to fight for what you want, and to stick to your own standards. Don’t let anyone tell you who you should love, how you should love, when you should love. Don’t let your soul be controlled and be isolated in a box. Don’t let words of others affect the way you fall for someone.

Be proud of the way you show how much you care. There’s nothing to be embarrassed about how you express your emotions. Your feelings are what make you a human being and there’s no point for you to hide them. There’s no reason for you to hold yourself from saying what you want.

You will not stay on this earth forever and you will not always get the chance to let the words out of your tongue. Never hesitate to tell someone how much you love them. Never think twice about giving someone a compliment. Never feel too small for owning your mistakes and asking for apologies.

Your heart is going to be so much lighter when it’s free from guilt and anger. Your heart is going to be at peace because it doesn’t carry any secrets. And your heart is going to live longer because it’s brave enough to take more risks.

Be proud of the way you love too much. Forget about the ones who took your big heart for granted. Forget all the times you felt broken because you fell in love with the wrong person. Forget about the tears that you shed for all your lost love.

You learn from the bad choices you made. You become stronger because of your horrible experiences in the past. And you grow wiser in choosing the next person you’re going to fall in love with.

Be proud for always choosing your heart over anything else. Not every decision that you pick should be logical. You don’t have to feel obligated to rely heavily on your brain all the time. You don’t have to always weigh the pros and cons in everything that you do. Because sometimes, the best answer comes from trusting your own gut.

Be proud of believing that love has the power to change everyone and everything. Love can connect people despite their differences in culture and upbringing. Love can heal all wounds, brokenness, and sufferings. Love can give hope even in desperate situations.

Be proud of your openness, of your vulnerability, of your depth. Be proud about your old-fashion way of falling in love. And most of all, be proud of having the courage to share your soul to everyone, because the world needs someone like you more. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
