If I do something for you, I don’t expect anything back but gratitude and appreciation. But do not take my kindness as a weakness.
Never realized how close this music video hits home.
sit yourself down and repeat this mantra until you believe it:
loneliness is not an appropriate reason to settle. it is not a reason to actively seek out someone special. love does not come easy. it doesn’t come when you want it because everyone else around you is in a happy relationship. love isn’t something you yearn for when the nights are cold and it’d feel nice to have someone to hold you through the darkness. be patient, your time will come. do not settle. you deserve the best. you have your faults. you may be skeptical, impatient, abrasive, and disillusioned. do not settle. wait for someone who is willing to accept you as you are and want to help you change for the better. wait for someone that will work with you to get past your inner demons, whatever they are. it doesn’t matter. you may not be kind or beautiful or have direction in your life. just because you see couples holding hands on the street, smiling, laughing, admiring each other from the corners of their eyes. it doesn’t mean that you need someone. do not settle. you are not perfect, but you are deserving.
are you still craving companionship?
if your answer is yes, read and reread it over and over again until the aching inside of you is suppressed.
What’s keeping me here? What’s the reason that I don’t just walk up and leave and start fresh in a new city?
