“Never apologize for being sensitive or emotional. It’s a big heart and aren’t afraid to let others see it. Showing your emotions is a sign of strength.”
– Brigitte Nicole
She’s not afraid of telling you she likes you. As much as she fears it, she fears more not saying something.
She doesn’t look at the way she feels like something that is clingy or too much. To her, it comes naturally.
She’s been told she should be different. She should change. She should hide how she feels and not put it all out there. But being exactly how she is, is who she is to a core.
And she’s not afraid to show you exactly that and exactly what she feels.
She’s not afraid to say “I love you,” even if you don’t say it back.
She loves deeply not because she’s desperate to be loved. She just isn’t afraid to love.
She knows how to love even in those moments she’s been met with heartbreak.
She considers it a weakness to hide how she feels, in a world that’s told her to do just that. She hopes you feel the same way but she doesn’t need you too.
She knows love isn’t that which needs to be reciprocated but rather enough that you both can feel it.
Unrequited love is a life she knows but does not fear because she knows she’s doing it right.
For she’d rather love someone too deeply and let them know it than fear never saying something at all.
She isn’t afraid of intense feelings.
She lives for the eye contact that lasts a little too long. She lives for the hugs that linger. She lives for those moments where you just know something is there only none of you say it.
She’s waiting for her time, not out of fear or trying to be coy. But she knows with confidence no matter how much time passes her feelings won’t change. There is a confidence in that.
And there’s no pressure for her.
You won’t have to wonder what she’s thinking. You won’t have to wonder if she’ll answer your text or snap or like your insta. She feels no shame in answering too quickly or being the first like or view.
She won’t lie to you. She won’t make you question anything.
She knows dating is a game. A game that will never be won by those who choose to participate.
