I know how you feel. I know exactly how the pain inside of you stings your heart. I know how exhausted you are from trying. I know that you’ve given yourself too many times, only to be broken and left disappointed once again.
And I know that you are on the verge of giving up. You no longer care about finding real love. You no longer have the strength to give more chances. You no longer fight for the things you once believed in. I see you and, in your eyes, I see a person who is ready to settle for the next, convenient opportunity.
I understand that. Believe me, I do. There was a time when I felt exactly the way you feel right now. I was trapped in my own maze of torment.
And there was a time when I was ready to make that mistake. To give my heart to someone I knew I would never love deeply. To surrender myself to whoever comes into my life. To condemn myself to a life of misery.
But somehow, I found the light at the end of the tunnel and I realized the truth.
This life is short. And true love is worth the wait.
Nothing else is more wonderful and life-changing that experiencing real love. Nothing else is more sacred than finding true, genuine love in a world that considers having emotion a weakness.
I know, true love is rare. And it is really difficult to find. Especially in today’s world of low moral values. But that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist. True love is real. I am telling you this because I’ve been lucky to find it where I least expected it. And I am lucky to be reminded of it each and every single day of my life.
True love will come to you. But it will come when it is time. You cannot force it. You cannot rush it. And you cannot do anything to find out when it is going to happen. The only thing that is within your power is to wait.
And once the wait is finally over and love enters your life, you will realize that no matter how difficult it was, the wait was worth it.
You know why?
Well, because true love is unlike anything you’ve felt in your life. True love is the sunlight peeking from behind the heavy clouds. True love is the most precious, shiny diamond among millions of pebbles. True love is a rainbow brightening your day after a scary thunderstorm.
It is not something to be doubted. True love comes when you are ready for it. It stays and it lasts forever. It lifts you up when you have no idea that you needed to be lifted. It holds you in its warm embrace when you need it the most. It changes your whole life from the core and makes you feel things you’ve never ever felt before.
So, please don’t make the mistake of settling for just about anyone.
Don’t say yes to people who don’t make you happy. Don’t accept a relationship that doesn’t make your heart flutter. Don’t condemn yourself to a future that you would regret choosing. Don’t settle for anything that isn’t wholehearted.
You deserve to experience love in all its splendor. You deserve to be loved. You deserve to be happy. You deserve to hope, dream, believe, smile. You deserve to live.
