Our generation is riddled with indifference. Nobody wants to be the one who cares too much, so we act like we don’t care about anything at all. Don’t let society trick you into believing that sincerity is a weakness. Stop choking on your desires and be upfront about what you want, because passion is so underrated. People are going to try to convince you that life is all about the chase but they’re wrong. It’s impossible to truly enjoy anything in life when you’re expected to do it from a distance.
You are accountable for your own happiness, so figure out what brings you joy and then surround yourself with it.
Grab hold of the things you love and cling to them unapologetically. It’s okay to show an interest in someone. It’s okay to be the one who cares too much. Don’t pay attention to anyone who is intimidated by your feelings. They might be content to play games with their heart, but you don’t have to be. Invest your time into someone who embraces your vulnerability. Hold out for the one who isn’t afraid to tell you how they feel about you.
Keep showing your heart to people, no matter how many times it is returned to you in pieces, because once you start concealing who you are you lose your value. The person you are meant to spend the rest of your life with is going to fall in love with your heart, not your shadow. Anyone who runs from you as soon as things get real is doing you a favor.
You need to do yourself a favor by letting them go and looking to the future.
You get to decide whether to embrace the vibrant colors of the world or to live your life in shades of gray. You get one opportunity to live this life, and you owe it to yourself to live boldly. When you feel something, feel it deeply; from the tips of your fingers all the way down to your toes. When people tell you not to get your hopes up, tell them that a world without hope would be a world without light. When they discourage you from speaking your mind, talk louder. Rebel against the expectations of society and show them just how much you care.
