Please Believe Me When I Tell You That I Love You

I know that I’m not always the perfect girlfriend and I know that I do not always give you the love that you deserve.

Far too often I expect you to show me the kind of love found in fairytales and movies while I sit back and fail to do the same for you and for that I’m sorry. I wish you could get inside my brain and realize just how much I want to kiss you while we’re driving…when I see you in the halls at school…everywhere.

Thank you for showing me affection even when I feel like I have not earned it. I know it must be hard to try and love me when I seem closed off to you at times, but please trust me when I say that I need you to keep trying.

Too often I have opened my heart up to those who do not deserve it, only to have it broken again and again. Believe me when I tell you I love you, because although I may be closed off, it is simply because I don’t want to get hurt again.

With every random text and hug, my heart opens up more to you, and I fall more in love with you then I thought was possible. It may not always seem like it babe, but I’m trying so hard to open up to you and be vulnerable so that I can show you how much you really mean to me.

I know that one day I will look back and laugh, thinking about how silly it was that I had my guard up for you. But until that day, please continue to love me, for I know that I love you. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
