You think you are ready to take the leap but when someone great comes along, you start freaking out that you have to spend the rest of your life with them. You feel trapped and want to leave.
I’m learning to discard the parts of myself that don’t fit and shed the layers that no longer belong.
Let it kill you and bring you back to life.
You let your anxiety win by giving away your power.
Your needs are as important as anyone else’s. You are human just like everyone else. There is a limit to the sacrifices and compromises you can make. Don’t lose yourself trying to give other people what they are unable to give themselves.
You stay up at night wondering how you can contribute to the world and make a difference. You invest in developing your spiritual, intellectual and moral values.
Smart people give up easily when they fail. They are used to solving problems very quickly compared to others. When they fail at something, they think that something is wrong with them and give up, instead of realizing that it is simply another stepping stone to success.
This is the kind of love that will never give up on you, even when you’ve given up on yourself. This is the kind of love that will build a foundation of mutual trust and respect upon which stands strong partnership.
To my girls who express themselves and speak their mind, who say what they feel, and wear their hearts on their sleeves, don’t change. The world needs your earnest authenticity and creativity.
You need to get over your past, and you need to get out of your own way.
