It’s reflecting. Asking questions. Listening without needing to respond. Focusing on being happy in your presence alone.
But, although people with soft hearts aren’t always the best at tough love, they are among some of the toughest people you will know.
Everyone deserves a second or third chance.
In the new year, I hope you believe.
This me accepting that a heart that is broken is still worthy of love.
While she’s the type of girl who knows right from wrong, she’s also the first to admit that sometimes life isn’t so cut and dry. Every time it comes to you, she throws logic out the window. But one day, she will realize that she deserves someone who shows her that love is consistent and never convenient.
I wonder if my name is a wound that won’t heal. I wonder if every time it gets brought up, you try to sew it back together with the remaining threads of whatever mess this was.
When you push her away, you will look for her in everyone else, but no one will quite compare.
You were never the person I needed you to be. And I know it won’t be easy, but nothing worth doing ever is. But I will learn to take things slowly.
The moment you accept that, at one point or another, you will fuck up in life, is the moment you can allow yourself a chance to breathe. It is the moment you give yourself the opportunity to grow and learn along the way.
