Anchorage: The longing to grasp a moment between your fingertips, to hold onto the sentences, the words, the memories and keep them with you.
Love is not a power play, not roles and dynamics and shoes you must fill. You don’t need to become something better just to have someone’s affection, even if the other person’s intentions are pure. And you can’t make someone change for your reasons, or even the right reasons.
Splash your face with cool water and close your eyes, feel the sensation on your skin. You are alive. How beautiful is that?
So much of ourselves is measured, calculated, and compared to the worldly standards we should uphold. Love was never meant to be one of those things.
When you start to doubt, ask yourself this: Why are you so worried, do you not serve an incredible, all-powerful God?
You suck because you’re letting a few terrible times alter your perception of the way the world dates. You suck because you’re choosing to only see the crap, rather than the possibility, the ‘maybes,’ the ‘could bes’ surrounding letting another person in.
You appreciate yourself for the imperfect, complex, and astounding being you are.
I want sweaty palms and timid fingers reaching out to hold one another’s hands. I want flushed cheeks and hesitant steps. I want laugh lines and nervous giggles.
Virgo: You are a great listener, trustworthy, calm and collected, no matter the drama you face. Because of your patient nature and your ability to often take on more than you should, you find yourself attracting the guy with baggage.
