So a guy texts his buddy, asking for advice about a girl he’s been talking to. They’ve been “on and off” for a while, and he just isn’t sure if he’s ready to commit to her.

He likes her, but he doesn’t know if he really likes her. She comes on really strong, and he’s worried that she might love “too much.”

He’s considering taking the easy way out and just ghosting her. But then his best friend gives him this real talk, blunt, advice:

It’s way too easy to take people for granted in this world. With the rise of Instagram, Tinder, and other social media, it can feel like we have limitless options. Instead of focusing on what we do have, we are always focusing on what we could have. I really hope this guy took his friend’s advice and started appreciating her.

Maybe people need to just let themselves be loved. TC mark

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
