In A World Trying To Make You Feel Alone, I’ll Always Be By Your Side   

Twenty20 / @Angel_Eyes

In a world trying to make you feel ugly, I’ll show you your beauty; the beauty that lies within, the beauty that only a few people can show you, the beauty that you sometimes forget you have because of all the things people told you and all the lies they made you believe.

In a world trying to make you feel like a failure, I’ll remind you of your accomplishments, I’ll remind you of the days you fought so hard to be where you are today, I’ll remind you of the nights you couldn’t stop crying but you eventually found a way to smile again and I’ll remind you of how far you’ve come, how strong you are and how resilient you can be.

In a world trying to make you feel unloved, I’ll love you with all my heart. I’ll love you when you’re moody. I’ll love you when you’re weak. I’ll love you when you’re quiet. I’ll love you when you’re scared. I’ll love you when you’re lost and I’ll love you when you can’t name one single thing you love about yourself. I’ll write you a list of everything I love about you. I’ll see the things that no one sees, not even you. I’ll introduce you to a new kind of love. A love you never thought existed. The kind of love you deserve.

In a world trying to make you believe that everyone is shady, I’ll be the one thing that’s real. I’ll be kind. I’ll be genuine. I won’t take you for granted. I won’t only love you when you’re happy or rich or successful. I won’t walk out on you when you’re at your lowest. I won’t backstab you or disappoint you. I’ll always fight for you. I’ll always stand by you. I’ll always be on your side. We’ll always be on the same team, whether we win or lose. I’ll always be part of your team.

In a world trying to convince you that everyone is going to betray you, I’ll prove to you my loyalty time and time again. I’ll make you trust again. I’ll remind you that it’s okay to be vulnerable. I’ll remind you that not everyone you love will judge you. I’ll make you realize that history doesn’t always have to repeat itself. I’ll make you realize that some risks are worth taking and some chances can change your life. I’ll remind you that if you take a leap of faith, you can change your whole world. A world that makes you feel beautiful. A world that makes you feel safe. A world where you don’t have to worry about being alone, because I’ll always be right beside you. TC mark

Nothing terrifies me more than being so close to someone and then watching them become a stranger again

Nothing scares me more than someone loving me one day and deciding they don’t want me the next. Nothing terrifies me more than being so close to someone and then watching them become a stranger again.
