Love Like A Child With All Your Heart

When you fall, fall hard and fall deep. Don’t let the past make you guarded and angry. Open your arms and dive into love headfirst. Don’t worry about the repercussions just do it because it could turn out to be the best thing in the world.

When you love like a child you love fully and deeply, you say what is on your mind and you don’t hold back because you don’t know any better. You don’t know the pain the world can cause you because you still have stars in your eyes and hope that the world is inherently a good place.

Don’t lose that.

When you love make sure you love with your whole heart, don’t guard it because you’ve felt pain before because you might be the cause of your own heartbreak. Say what’s on your mind and don’t hold back. If you think you might love someone let them know, use your words and express yourself. If you’re angry communicate that, people can’t read minds, well at least not most people.

Don’t keep everything bottled inside, it’s not healthy and it’s never going to work out the way you want if you don’t talk about what’s happening.

Love like a child and love like you don’t know pain, like you don’t know hurt, like you aren’t scared of rejection and if you do get rejected and feel pain know it’s okay to cry.

It’s okay to be upset and cry out all the tears you have in your eyes, it’s okay to talk about it to your friends, but make sure you wipe your eyes and get back up again.

Don’t let the walls build – keep them shallow and try again.

Try your best to forget the pain and let it go. Allow yourself to move forward because you’re now one step closer to finding love than every single person who has barricaded their heart inside their chest with a lock and chain to avoid the pain your feeling. Acknowledge it, allow yourself to feel sad for however long you need then move forward without regret.

Whatever you do try your best to not close yourself off to the world because the world needs your happy-go-lucky attitude and your full heart. You’ve felt pain but you’ve never let it get you down.

It’s okay to acknowledge your emotions, in fact you should acknowledge your emotions because they will ultimately make you stronger, just don’t let them make you more guarded.

Keep your head high no matter how many times you fall, because it’s not how many times you fall that count but how many times you get up and laugh it off and keep on loving.

Love with a burning passion and don’t let anyone dull the fire you have inside you. Keep loving and laughing and learning because someone like you doesn’t deserve to be guarded your heart is strong and your intentions are pure.

Someone will come along and love you for you and make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else who came along and played with your heart. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
