Love Gives Life

So give a little

Look, I’ve been through so much terrible shit. Shit that other people can’t imagine. Shit that will break a woman down. And yet, you know what? I still have hope. Cause here’s the thing: There are good folks out there, and some of them will want you in their life. They will love, cherish, and respect you. Their love might not be perfect, but it will be better than this, and I want you to have it. It’s yours.

This quote makes me so very happy.

Yes, I wrote this. But based on the number of young men and women who read this blog and reach out to me, I can’t emphasize this enough. I actually have to remind myself of it, too. You are worthy of love and of happiness. It’s true.

You kept your love for me hidden like a teenage girl’s diary; you left it protected by pillowcases, masked by mattresses or even underneath your underwear. Yet if I walked past you in public you’d look up and look down again without shooting me the shy smile that made me fall in love with you in the first place. When we were alone you’d shower me with affection and adoration and say “this is for all the times I saw you today that I had to pretend I didn’t know you.” I know why you do it and I know you have to but at the same time it kills me to even think that your love for me is not as deep as the Mariana trench, or high as Everest, or as long as the Nile.
I hate the fact we have to hide our love just because the world isn’t ready for it.  (via theglycoprotein)
