Yes, you. Don’t think I don’t know you because I am like you. I have stepped into your shoes so many times. I know how you feel.
Don’t listen to those who will tell you that you love too much. Do not let them tell you that you are too emotional, clingy, old-fashioned, boring, a difficult person to deal with. Do not listen to them when they say to you: “You have to change. You love way too hard. Keep your feelings to yourself. Do not get too attached to people.” Yep, I know how this feels like. I have been there many times.
Don’t listen to them: your love can never be too much. Your heart is special; it is as big as to absorb all the love on Earth. Your heart is rare. It is unique.
I need you to know you are not wrong. You are not weird. It isn’t you who is weak, but them. They secretly want to love the way you do, but they are afraid they will get hurt. They do not know what pure and sincere love feels like because no one has ever shown them love like yours. They are not as strong as you are.
You’re too kind and compassionate. You give your heart, mind, and body to the person you love. You entirely invest yourself in your relationships.
When one loves as you do, it means they should not be judged for how they express their love. They should not worry whether their love is “too much.” Ever.
Selfishness is a concept you’re not aware of. When you’re tired, worried, or sad, you do not focus on your feelings and needs; instead you like to take care of those of others. When you are having bad days or going through tough times, you worry others will think that you’re oversensitive and self-absorbed. They do not care about how you feel.
You have taught people that you come second because you always put them first. For people like us, falling in love comes naturally. We do not see it as something to be won over or as a way to play with someone’s feelings. We know how we want to be treated, looked at, spoken to, touched. We believe that if we love people unconditionally, they will love us in the same way. That almost never happens.
But, you know what? Maybe some people do not deserve to be loved that way. Some just are not worth fighting for.
You’ll never let others down when they need your advice, support, or help. You’ll treat them with respect and dignity although they do not deserve your kindness. You’ll put in a lot of effort to make others happy even though you know deep down they will not give you anything in return.
You often believe the whole world is against you. You even feel like nothing you do is ever good enough. Because, whatever you say or do, people never seem satisfied with you. However, never blame yourself when others fail to understand you or when they leave you. Do not let their cruel behavior determine your value and happiness.
Do you usually wonder why people ca not understand you? Well, if you do, you’d better stop now because you will never find the answer. They are not like you. Their soul is not like yours. They do not see people the way you do. Because your heart is different from theirs – it’s rear.
They do not know anything about the burden you carry on your shoulders. They do not know that your heart has been broken several times and you were left to pick up your pieces all by yourself.
Trust me; you’re special. Let others believe or say whatever they want about you because you are much more than that.
Do not let others make you question yourself. Do not let them shatter your confidence and hopes. You are strong, smart, and capable. There is indeed a lot of strength as well as courage inside of you; you only need to find it.
I need you to know that you deserve to be surrounded by people who will treat you with love, kindness, and compassion – the way you treat others. Don’t you ever doubt that you deserve that?
Accept yourself the way you are. Do not change your attitude towards people. Do not let your love scare you. Do not hide your heart because it is a blessing, not a curse. Learn to be careful who you give it to. Protect yourself.
Give your heart to the one who’ll know its worth and who’ll love you too hard; like the way you do. Give it to the one who’ll appreciate you and who’ll be grateful for having such a fantastic person in his life; YOU.
Somebody reminding you to love yourself as much as you can love others.
