If no one told you this today – I am proud of you for the way that you care.
Despite what you have been through at the hands of love, I am proud of you for having the courage to keep loving deeply in a world that sometimes fails to do so. I am proud of you for having the courage to believe that genuine connection still exists.
I know how difficult it is to continue to be this kind of person when love hasn’t always been kind to you. I know what it is like to have a heart that cannot stop pouring, to have a heart that sometimes feels like it is too much. I know that you can overthink your sensitivity, and I know that it can be something you have been convinced that you have to silence. But I am proud of your heart. There is something deeply beautiful when you discover the kind of person who makes you believe in the goodness of others. There is something deeply beautiful when it comes to seeing someone who is genuine, and kind – someone who makes people feel seen, someone who makes people feel deeply loved for who they are, in all of their light and all of their dark. It is beautiful to be the kind of person who cares. To be the kind of person who stays open, who believes in going deeper.
Because we need souls like that. We need people like you in this world. We need softness, we need people who remind us of connection when we are all avoiding eye contact. I am proud of you for being this person in this world. The way that you love others is inspiring. You do not need to apologise for the way you feel. You do not need to apologise for how your heart exists here. There is courage in being the person who connects. There is bravery in staying open despite what you have been through. You should be proud of yourself for loving. Please don’t ever stop.
