It’s Time To Stop Apologizing For Your Heart

It’s time to stop apologizing for your heart. For the way you feel everything so deeply, for the way you give no matter how many times you’ve been broken, for the way your heart moves and for the way your heart falls in love. It’s time to stop listening to those who tell you that it needs to slow down or stop or hold back. It’s time to stop suppressing how you really feel because nothing feels better than setting your heart free, nothing feels better than knowing exactly where you stand so your heart can finally have an answer. So your heart can either dive in or move on. Nothing feels better than liberating your heart from the cage people want to lock it in.

It’s time to stop apologizing for the way you put your heart back together or the way you heal. It’s time to stop apologizing for the way you choose to mend your heart and it’s time to stop apologizing for your new standards or your new boundaries. It’s time to stop apologizing for the ways you guard yourself and the people you choose to let in. It’s time to stop apologizing for the doors you close and the people you leave to protect your heart.

It’s time to stop apologizing for how you choose to show your love. Whether you love too much or too soon, whether you’re too emotional or too romantic, whether you’re too trusting or too forgiving. It’s time to stop apologizing for not wanting to settle, for not playing the games people play or for not wearing a false mask so you can get false attention. It’s time to stop apologizing for the way your heart beats and what makes it feel alive. It’s time to stop apologizing for wanting a certain kind of love. It’s time to stop apologizing for taking the time to find the right kind of love instead of rushing into the wrong relationships just so you can keep up with everyone around you.

It’s time to stop apologizing for the way you put yourself first or the way you choose yourself. It’s time to stop apologizing for walking away or cutting people off. It’s time to stop apologizing for how long it takes you to move on or why you decide to leave. It’s time to stop apologizing for taking back your love from those who didn’t make you feel enough or those who made you feel like you’re too hard to handle. It’s time to stop apologizing for your heart and how it fights for love or how it chooses not to give up on it no matter how many times it got broken. It’s time to stop apologizing for who you are.
