Men are so used to being the protector. To being the guy that saves the girl. But truth be told, we don’t need saving anymore. And we never did.
No matter how blunt you are in front of his friends or family, if he can appreciate your liveliness and honesty, he’s not going anywhere.
Settling isn’t what we are meant to do. Don’t sell yourself short. Don’t let fear get in the way of your future. Fall in love. And watch yourself grow. Watch yourself change. And experience pure magic.
One day, you’re going to wake up without the pit in your stomach. You’re going to still be sad sure, but you will feel a little bit better for some reason. You don’t know how, or why. But for some reason, you miss them a little bit less.
‘You aren’t alone in this feeling’
This is your life you get to live! You aren’t going to be single forever. So, while you’re here, you might as well have fun with it and enjoy it.
You are worth more than a friends with benefit relationships. You are worth more than drunken lip locking kisses. You deserve more than just a friend. You deserve someone who stays. Who is your best friend and your lover.
At the end of the day, we all need to do what is best for us. No matter the stares or looks or gossip. At the end of the day, we need to do what lights us up after a long day at work. We need to stop apologizing for being ourselves, and for giving ourselves a shot. So, stop apologizing for every little thing. Stop second guessing yourself. And stop doubting yourself.
When you are lonely, and you need help, hold onto yourself. Love yourself. Don’t try to run backwards, and run to the thing you know best. Just push forward. Move on. And let go of that person who is not your person anymore.
When you find someone who lights up your world in ways no one else has done before, and when you find someone who makes you smile just by knowing they exist, you aren’t supposed to give that up. No matter the time, the location, or your age, when you find that person who loves you for you, you’re supposed to make it work.
