You’re allowed to give your heart to people who don’t deserve it, to try to love people you know you shouldn’t just because you want to know if love is something you’re capable of doing.
This is for the ones who bottle their emotions up. Those who have been through so much that an emotional turmoil just seems like a normal Tuesday.
Vulnerability is not a flaw. It is not a shortcoming, not something to apologize for. Vulnerability is something strong, something raw — a sort of power not everyone possesses.
Please understand there’s more to me than just meets the eye. Please understand I have substance and I really do cry sometimes. Below the surface is a girl who’s been hurt, a girl who is looking for a moment when she won’t get hurt, a girl who is looking for someone that will wipe her tears, a girl who is looking for someone who won’t hurt her. Will you be that someone?
It’s when you feel fear but do it anyway. It’s when you let someone you love know that they’ve hurt you, instead of reacting with anger. It’s being truthful when you feel shame for what you did. That’s strength and it’s to be admired.
Whenever others get emotional over something, sensitive people are the best to turn to for comfort because we respect and understand your feelings, and in turn we just need someone to do the same for us.
What kind of music do you listen to when you’re sad?
Being vulnerable is scary. But I promise it’s not as scary as waking up and realizing it’s too late to hold someone’s hand. To tell them they’re magic. To dance with them. To kiss them. To take a long drive with them. To rest your head on their chest. To count the freckles on their nose while they’re sleeping next to you.
Vulnerability is courageous. It’s a willingness to drop your shield and expose the unguarded underbelly of your fears, doubts, and insecurities.
Take a chance on love. Take the biggest leap. Take the riskiest option. It’s better to fail in love than not to experience love at all.
