I think that in the end we all just want to be loved.
That effortless type of love that doesn’t consume us, but warmly wraps around us. That healthy love that doesn’t lead to dependency, but rather allows us to love while continuing to be free.
But how many of us wait for that type of love?
The number of souls that settle for
because of the constant fear of
Isn’t the thought of 15 years from now still being half loved and unhappy more horrifying than waiting?
Think about it.
Imagine waking up 15 years from now, and instead of waking up with a partner that is fully emotionally prepared and invested in loving you, you’re still with the person who never could, but worse, now there is resentment and pain.
Precious years have gone by because you were more worried about what others thought, more afraid of being alone than just waiting.
Why are so many of us so scared of being alone with ourselves?
Looking back at our past relationships, how many of us are
glad that we left when we did?
Glad that they left when they did?
A loving relationship that should come easy, but instead is filled with constant pain. Every day having to explain to them your needs, and wants. Constantly begging to be loved how you deserve while they pretend to listen.
As terrifying as it is, isn’t it more terrifying to stay in a relationship where you constantly feel like you’re begging for scraps?
Why haven’t you left, love?
Why can’t you love yourself enough to want more for yourself, to want more for your heart?
I hope that we are all taking this time to reflect on our past and present, and are putting our hearts and needs first.
