This Is For The Girls Who Care Too Much

To the girls who love with their entire hearts, who pour all of themselves into the relationships, into the people, into the family members, the friends, and the men they love—don’t ever change.

Don’t let the world make you harsh because it doesn’t understand the power of forgiveness.

Don’t let life turn you cold because people haven’t discovered how loving doesn’t make you weak, but actually gives you strength.

See, you have things figured out. You know that there’s power in being a good person, a person who loves and doesn’t look back with regrets. You know that every relationship has built you, every kiss has changed you, and every heartbreak has made you a better lover.

You’ve been hurt, but that hasn’t stripped you naked, hasn’t made you careful or guarded. You know that even in hurt there is redemption, and you’ve crossed to the other side, refreshed and renewed.

Things haven’t always gone your way; in fact, you’ve had your share of loss and loneliness, but you still love because that’s who you are. You care. You care too much. About things and people, about the ones you’ve loved, about the relationships you’ve been in.

And it’s okay to be that way.

You have a lot of feelings, a lot of heart. You are too much.

But it’s okay to be too much.

It’s okay to pour yourself into all aspects of your life, even love. It’s okay to keep believing, keep falling. It’s okay to forgive those who have hurt you. Because forgiveness not only lifts them, but frees yourself.

You are not weak because you care too much. No, don’t hurt yourself in the process. Don’t let yourself be taken advantage of or give yourself away with nothing in return. But you shouldn’t feel that it’s weak to care about things and people. Truthfully, you are as strong as they come.

So please, never stop caring and loving with that big, beautiful heart of yours. Because for the right person, you won’t be too much. You will be the perfect amount. TC mark

Poetry That Will Empower and Inspire You

Salt Water, the new poetry collection by Brianna Wiest, is a must-have book on your journey to healing. Grab a cup of tea and let these essential, purifying prose calm your mind and filter out the noise.

Salt Water is a slow deep breath, in and out. It sits in a new genre of poetry, somewhere between artistic self-expression and candid self-help. It is a meditation on acceptance, growth, and what it means to be human. Salt Water is the note you wrote to yourself years ago, which you find again when you most need it, that reminds you ‘it’s going to be okay.’”
—Lee Crutchley, Author of “How To Be Happy, Or At Least Less Sad”
