Make your life not solely about who you’re loving, but how you’re loving your world.
loving your life
You have expectations—for yourself, for your future lover, for life—that you never had before.
One day, things will have supposed to hurt, but miraculously they won’t.
You value the relationships that you do have, instead of focusing on the ones you don’t.
Be honest with yourself. Are you happy? Is this where you want to be? Is this who you want to be with? Will you regret things in the future if you don’t make a change now?
I try to make things look beautiful rather than authentic and flawed because I don’t yet realize that I’m sitting a little too close. That my nose is pressed against the canvas, searching for imperfections, when really I could take a step back and see that my painting is beautiful. Just the way it is.
Happiness must be given space to grow and room to evolve. Instead of binding it up and ripping it apart as a semblance of keeping control, surrender yourself to it.
