Love like it’s the only thing you know how to do.

Everyone has been hurt in life.
 That’s life. The important thing to remember is although people may hurt you/break you down.. you can’t let it turn you cold.
 
 No one’s heart turns cold unless it’s been treated with coldness for a while.
 
 I’m not afraid of commitment, I’m afraid of surrendering control too quickly,
 of placing my heart into hands that won’t know how to hold it.- Beau Taplin.
 
 I have a big heart. I’m guilty for that. When I care about someone, I give them all I have.
 I will never let anything/anyone change that about me.. But I do have to admit that I am more cautious in allowing others to see/feel my love to it’s full extent due to my fear of losing control and putting myself in a position to be hurt.
 
 “I think a lot of people don’t understand what real romance is. Anyone can buy flowers, candy, jewelry, there’s no love in that. The truly romantic things in life are those little things you do every day to show you care, and that you’re thinking of them. It’s going out of your way to make them happy. The way you hold her hand when you know she’s scared, or you save the last piece of cake for him. The random text in the middle of the day, just to say “ I love you” or “I miss you”. The way he stops to kiss you when he passes by. It’s dedicating her favorite song to her, and letting her eat your fries; telling her she’s beautiful, even when she’s in her sweats; with her hair in a ponytail and no makeup. It’s putting your favorite show on pause so she can tell you about her day, and laughing at his jokes even the really lame ones. It’s slow dancing in the kitchen and kissing in the rain. Romance isn’t about buying, it’s about giving. True romance is in the gestures.”
 
 I’m a sucker for thoughtful gestures.
 I’m a sucker for the little things, the innocent parts of a relationship.
 The “Hey I can tell something’s wrong,” the “I thought of you when I saw this.”
 The “I took this picture of you when you weren’t paying attention, “
 The “I framed this of us so I can see it everyday.”
 
 Love like it’s the only thing you know how to do.
 
 Every woman deserves a man who will proudly praise her in front of other women and men.
 Don’t ever allow yourself as a woman to feel anything less than unconditional love.
 You are deserving
 What you give is enough.
 The love you have is enough.
 You are enough.
 
 & when you realize that- you will attract someone who also realizes that… probably more than you do because your flaws are perfect for the guy that is meant to love you.
 
 Don’t subject yourself to feeling 2nd best/not worthy of being praised for amazing person you are.
