It’s important to be the type of person who loves too hard.
It’s important to be the type of person who hurts too easy and not be ashamed of it.
It’s important to be the type of person who is a little too soft for the hardness that is the reality of the world. We need those people. We need the people who feel things a little too deeply. We need people who jump into love knowing very well the risk that comes with it. We need the people who say I love you a little too often. The ones who are drunk honest but do it sober. We need the people who cry a little too much, and when they break, it isn’t with grace, but rather violently at rock bottom. We need people who open their hearts to others even if it’s broken. Because being broken doesn’t mean you have to put yourself back together alone. Because the only real way to heal is to love the people in your life with everything you have in you.
When we get hurt we think we have to shut out love, but that is when we need it most. And when you get hurt, healing won’t come in the form of one relationship, but rather every relationship you’ve built up to this point. We need people who know that vulnerability isn’t weakness, but essential and asking for help doesn’t mean you’re wrong for doing so. We need people who don’t let heartbreak dictate how deeply they believe in their next love story. We need people who feel things a little too much. We need people who hurt when something ends. We need people who stare at the door someone walks out and it pains them to see them go. We need people who don’t know how to ends things and hate the word goodbye.
It’s important to be the type of person who believes love is everything it’s cracked up to be. Because it is. And even when something ends, you’ll find yourself looking back and seeing how worth it that it really was. There is no promise things will work out, but in the midst of heartbreak and things that don’t go right, it is important to be the type of person who sees beauty even when your eyes are welled up with tears and blurry.
