Love Loudly Because Keeping Your Emotions Quiet Will Backfire On You

Love Loudly Because The World Needs More Soft Hearts Like Yours

Love loudly because the only thing holding you back is the fear of embarrassment, the fear of rejection, the fear of being told you’re not enough. But even if you don’t end up with the result that you want, you cannot allow it to impact your view of yourself. You cannot let your self-worth depend on someone else’s opinion of you. You need to set your own opinions. You need to love yourself, regardless of who else feels the same.

Love loudly because you don’t want to look back on your life and have regrets about how you waited too long to speak your mind, to admit how you feel, to tell those special people how much they meant to you. Everything in this world is temporary, so even though the timing might not feel right, this could be the only time you have. You should take advantage of today. You shouldn’t let it pass you by. You shouldn’t wait until tomorrow to spread warmth.

Love loudly because every single person on this planet is going through more than you realize. They might need to hear those words. They might need your kindness. Even if expressing your emotions doesn’t end up getting you into the relationship you want, at least you will have brightened someone else’s day. At least you will have done yourself a favor by being true to yourself.

Love loudly because mixed signals aren’t going to get you far. Playing hard to get isn’t always going to work out. Your chances of ending up with the person you want skyrocket when you’re straightforward with them about your feelings, when you tell them exactly what you want from them, when you spill your heart to them without worrying about how they might react.

Love loudly because the things you leave unsaid are going to eat you alive. Some day in the future, you’re going to wish you spoke when you had the chance. You’re going to kick yourself for holding yourself back. You’re going to wonder what would’ve happened if you would have said what was on your mind, if you would have made a move, if you would have let your heart be seen.

Love loudly because emotionally isolating yourself isn’t going to protect yourself. It isn’t going to make it easier for you to move on from the person you’ve been thinking about nonstop. It’s only going to cut you off from what you really want from this world. It’s only going to push you further and further away from your happily ever after.

Love loudly because your emotions aren’t meant to be chained and hidden away.

Love loudly because showing your vulnerable side takes strength.

Love loudly because it’s the healthiest thing to do.

Love loudly because keeping your emotions quiet will backfire on you. If the person you’ve been chasing never learns how you feel, then you’re doing yourself a disservice. You deserve to speak your mind. You deserve to express your feelings without fear. You deserve to be unapologetically you. TC mark
