Please trust me when I say you are easy to love. That if anyone makes you feel like you are anything else, they are your teacher, not your lover.
The ones we show up fully to love who still leave, they are here to teach you that your heart knows no limits. That the one who is here to love you will stand in the eye of the storm with you, reaching for your hand.
Even if you both shake as the reality on which you walk crumbles beneath you, they will stay. That you don’t have to be the only one fighting to be in each other’s stories. That love is a fight but does not have to feel like a war.
Trust me when I say if this was your great love story, you wouldn’t be the only one sitting with pen and paper in hand ready to write out the story of your lives side by side. If this was your great love story, you wouldn’t be left feeling hard to love. If this was your great love story, they wouldn’t have slipped out the back door in the darkness of night. If this was your great love story, no matter how many times you felt like you were walking a bridge that was nearly broken, you would make it through to the other side.
If this was your great love story, staying wouldn’t have a question mark inked in its skin.
If this was your great love story, you wouldn’t be the only one showing up to try again.
Trust me when I say that this love you desire is real and waiting for you if you trust it. Believe in it. Fill the cracks of your broken heart with hope because I promise you, you are one step closer to discovering the beauty that lies within it.
