I've been going through a lot lately and I've come to one conclusion: Love is hard.
I mean I guess I always knew love was hard, but I never REALLY knew or realized that it was THIS hard. So here's my input on it all.
Love is so complicated. Love is tough. Love pushes you to your limits. Love tests your patience. Love makes you laugh and cry. Love has the ability to make you do things you would never even think of. Love makes you crazy. Love can fill your heart. Love can break you down. Love is an incredible, unexplainable feeling that no matter what, you can't get away from it.
No matter how hard, heart-breaking, or tough love is... don't stop. Don't stop loving. Don't stop trying. Don't ever let someone take it away from you. You may get heartbroken or cry OR you may find the love of your life or laugh harder than you ever have before. You have to try.
You are resilient, beautiful, strong and worthy of receiving love. You have to try and put yourself out there. No matter how hard or afraid you may be, do it. You only have one life, why wait or live it in fear of the unknown? Go and love hard, unconditionally, and whole-heartedly. If you get hurt, it's okay... use it as a stepping stone in your journey and grow from it.
So just do it. Love. Love hard, no matter how tough it'll be. It's worth it.
