You Should Never Stop Believing In Love

Brigitte Tohm

“Love is fragile. And we’re not always its best caretakers. We just muddle through and do the best we can. And hope this fragile thing survives against all odds.”

The way I see it is that love is not straightforward.

It’s like boarding a train in a foreign land, without knowing what the final destination is. Taking a leap of faith without knowing whether you’ll injure yourself or land safely.

Trying to unlock a safe without knowing what the combination or sequence is.

Sometimes the train moves fast, and sometimes the train moves slow, the one constant is that the train is always going somewhere.

You can never truly understand or experience the beauty of love until you board that train. So when you find someone worth boarding that train for, love with everything you have, love with everything in your soul — keep that train moving.

It’s a decision you have to make every single day while people love in different ways. Some will text you a love poem at 3 am. Some might send you funny pictures on Instagram. Some prefer hugs and cuddles, and some demonstrate how much they care by giving you flowers or chocolates .

It is about compatibility between your wants and what the other gives.

Everyone shows their love differently. Just because they don’t show it the same way you do doesn’t mean they don’t care just as much.

It’s about learning something from it, even if it doesn’t turn out to be as you expected.

If someone ever makes you feel unworthy of love, leave them. Get out as quick as you can and never look back. You deserve to be loved by someone who knows that.

There are going to be lots of people that bring you flowers. Wait for the person who plants a whole garden for you to grow together.

But in the end , always remember, you should never stop loving. Even when your heart is breaking, believe in love. Because it is coming, and when it finds you it will be amazing. I promise. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
