Do we really think that the best way to remain unhurt is to avoid love, stay single, or not get married? Or are we used to seeing things end so we all just think that is how it is? More often we hear about how someone’s heart was broken, someone was cheated on, someone just isn’t happy anymore, and the list goes on and on. All of those things happen, it’s true. We can’t stop people from hurting each other, but we can choose to stop hurting and or causing others to hurt.
What if we all started to see that what matters is love and enjoying life with someone special? What if we let down our walls and started seeing things from different perspectives? Maybe we all feel so hard to love because we are afraid of being vulnerable. Nobody wants to get hurt, yet we hold onto the past and everything that hurt and that causes fear. I wish that it wasn’t so challenging to let go of fear, it is our enemy.
Love is truly worth it and I wish more felt that way. The Beatles had it right, all you need is love. I truly believe that everyone deserves happiness and true love.
Loving someone might be one of the hardest things to do, but it is worth it. Truly loving someone means you love ALL of them and that you want the best for them. As much as I hate the thought of hurting, I truly enjoy seeing someones face light up.
The beginning should be loving yourself. Truly looking in the mirror and reminding yourself that you are worth it and that you are amazing every single day. Say it even if you laugh because it is silly, say it until you believe it wholeheartedly. Even those who portray themselves as strong and fully confident struggle with loving themselves. Behind closed doors remember your past doesn’t define you, failure can only happen if you give up and never try again, you are worth it, you are amazing, and love is possible.
Once you do that find someone you can grow old with and not someone that fits “what others think you should have.” Laugh a lot and enjoy every single day. Maybe it’t not about “I do.” Maybe it’s “I will choose you every day because I love you and life would suck without you.”
