I know how much you fear getting hurt…
You’ve let your guard down easy in the past. You’ve trusted the wrong people. You’ve cried too many tears over people who weren’t even worth it. I know you don’t want to get hurt. I know you see vulnerability as a weakness. I know how strong you are because there was a time when you weren’t.
But how you also hate sleeping alone at night.
You toss and turn through the night, reaching over in a bed too big for one, not even remembering the last time you had someone next to you that you wanted to stay. A vital component is missing in your life and it’s okay to admit that. To say you want to meet someone and have a relationship is not a sign of weakness.
It’s a sign you’re human.
And I know what it’s like to put up a front like it doesn’t bother you.
But you won’t ever admit it. Because as much as you’re trying to convince others that you’re better off alone or you’re ‘really into your career right now’, you’re trying to convince yourself too.
But every couple that walks by, you look at with a bit of envy.
You look forward to the day when that’s you but you also can’t even picture it yet. It kind of feels like everyone else is in a relationship but you and you’re doing everything you can to be okay with that.
And you’d rather be alone than in the wrong company.
The past has taught you how it feels to settle for anything less. You remember what it was like being with someone and feeling alone right next to them.
But if there’s one thing I can remind you…
You deserve love more than anyone I know.
One day you’re going to meet someone and regardless of how much you push him away or run or try and actually mess something good up, he’s going to stick around. He’s going to break through these walls you build up and you’re going to let someone in again. He’ll see you at your worst and he’s going to stay. You’re going to fight and he won’t walk out but you’ll resolve it.
One day you’re going to realize needing someone doesn’t mean you’re weak. You’ll meet someone and their love will give you strength. One day you are going to meet someone who is deserving of you.
One day you’ll learn to love again and you’ll open your heart and only then it will heal.
