I keep seeing this around recently: “Don’t be afraid to be the one who loves the most. “
I hope to hell that it isn’t some nonsense from Thought Catalogue, because I have been repeating it to myself like a mantra, and I have been known to scoff at thought catalogue advice.
Wait there’s another one I just saw that I think is pretty good.
"Don’t be afraid to be loved more than you can return. Love need not be equal to be fair. It just needs to be true."
Oh look at me, dishing out quotes as if I’m an expert. I am worse than thought catalogue.
I have chosen a tough road. One that is riddled with frustration, pain and yearning. One fine day I may regret it. I probably will. But I promise myself when that day comes, I will remember at least that it all made sense at one point in time.
It isn’t always the silent treatment or the cold shoulder. I wish more people could understand this.
I had nightmares one after another. And then I dreamt of writing about my nightmares. And then I had more nightmares.
It was not a good night.
