A relationship that doesn’t make you feel adored or loved. We all deserve someone who gives us every reason to believe in ourselves and make us realize how lovable we are.
No man who loves you will make you feel as if you’re compromising yourself to be with him. Because that’s not love, that’s manipulation.
I refuse to settle for something that won’t fulfill just because I feel lonely or sad or empty. I refuse to take all of my loneliness and put it on another person’s back. I refuse to settle for a relationship that I don’t even really want.
Don’t settle. Don’t settle even if he or she seems perfect to you on paper. Don’t settle for someone just because they are gorgeous. Don’t settle for anything less than what your gut is telling you. Don’t settle for the rich, when their hearts don’t match the amount of money they make. Don’t settle for anyone who doesn’t make your heart feel held.
Date someone who loves you enough to answer your questions, to open up when you ask, and to give you a little extra assurance when you’re feeling slightly insecure. No it’s not too much to ask, it’s simply honesty. And trust me, the man who loves you never wants you to feel like there’s a hidden reserve of love he’s holding back.
You deserve a trustworthy relationship that won’t give you a reason to be guarded. You deserve a lifetime of feeling secured and protected. You deserve a love story that is built in honesty.
You deserve more than the boy who only wants you at 2 am, not 2 pm. You deserve more than whatever you’re settling for on the internet. You deserve more.
I am better than this crap. And so are you. It’s infuriating that we just lose our self respect just to get a taste of attention. Just to get a drop.
It’s not solely about finding the love that we deserve, but making sure we’re loving people how they deserve to be loved, too.
I realized that I was never going to be fully happy until I could learn how to grieve, how to fail, how to grow, and how to succeed — all on my own.
