I’ve survived too many crappy relationships. I’ve been hurt too many times. My heart still aches, and I feel broken inside. But, here I’m, stronger than ever. I know, I deserve better and won’t settle for anything less.
I have a lot to offer. I’m worth every bit of effort. I’m worth all the trouble. Here’s what you need to know about loving me.
1. The walls of my heart are high.
I used to think that everyone was good-hearted like me, but I was wrong. I suffered a lot. Now, I’m very cautious of people whose actions don’t match their words. I don’t want to be hurt again; that’s why I’m afraid to give my heart away.
Forgive me if that makes you feel frustrated; I just want to feel safe. Just be patient and treat me right and I will lead you through the thorny path; I’ll give you the keys to my heart.
2. I trust my intuition.
I can sense if your intentions are bad. I can see through all your bulls*it and lies. Life has taught me that. If you want to be with me, just be yourself. No masks. No fakeness. No lies. I deserve to be treated the same way I treat others.
If you can’t accept this, I’ll not be ashamed to show you the door.
3. I notice small things and react accordingly.
If I notice that you want to manipulate me, I won’t stay silent pretending like nothing happened; I’ll react and tell you right away. I don’t want to keep my true feelings inside anymore because I know the outcome of it. On the other side, also, I’ll notice your small acts of kindness and love and appreciate them.
The focus on the good and bad details will give the whole picture whether you truly care about me or not.
4. I truly appreciate kindness.
You may think you are the smartest, most talented person in this world, funny and rich, but I don’t give a damn about that. I’m interested in your character. I’m interested in the way you treat me and other people.
Integrity is everything. I can’t imagine myself being with someone who has no idea what kindness is.
5. Sometimes, my fears are greater than my faith in love.
I want to trust you, believe me. But after all that pain, I’m not able to trust anyone. I can’t believe your sweet words because, in the past, the same words were a poison to my heart. I’m afraid that love is nothing but a game to you.
Don’t give up on me when I fear love. Stay patient and walk beside me holding my hand.
6. When I love, I love wholeheartedly.
With my mind, body, heart, and soul. And I expect the same. I want to be with someone who deserves me. I want to be with someone who will love me as I am and inspires me to be a better person.
I want to be with someone who’ll fight for me with the same passion I fight for them.
7. I always believe in a better tomorrow.
Yes, my heart has been broken too many times, but I still hope for the best. I’ve experienced the worst, but my heart is still full of love. I still dare to take risks in life.
What is life without hope and faith? What is life without love?
8. I’m worth real love.
I’m worth every bit of effort. I know, earning my love won’t be easy, but I’m worth the fight.
You may be the one who will break the walls of my heart, and it will be a new, fresh start. I promise I’ll be only yours. You’ll always be in my heart.
