Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror.
Just keep going. No feeling is final.
Anyone who takes the time to be kind is beautiful.
Note to self: every time you were convinced you couldn’t go on, you did.
Having your heart broken once is hard. Trusting someone else with it is difficult; loving again is a risk. Having that heart broken once again is devastating… But, now I know I can get through it because I have before. I’m stronger this time around; and I will continue to love without abandon, loving deeply, trusting fully that my love won’t be tainted simply because others don’t know how to receive it; believing God gave me this heart full of love to love a world who needs it. Someday, someone will love me just as faithfully as I love them- a true commitment. Meanwhile (and God forbid, it ever stops there), I will love as Christ loves. That’s what He’s taught me to do.
