Never allow yourself to fall in love with the idea of being in love,
So many good hearts in this world convince themselves that their partner is perfect for them, not because they are; but because they want them so badly to be.
They act against who they are; what they want and give up so much forsaking their own happiness, so they can maintain a perception that what they have is perfect.
If you base all your joy upon a person, your joy becomes defined by that person. This is a path to losing sight of who you are as a person, and prevents the light within you from shining.
Those who truly see the light in you are not the ones who would see it locked away for only themselves; but those who would lift you and support you to do all the things in life you’ve wanted to try; which excite you; make you smile and make you feel ‘alive’.
Those who want nothing more than to see the light within you shine forth like the sun; and bask proudly in seeing you live the fullest potential of who you are, and who you want to be. Not the person they want you to be; or you think you should be for them.
Life moves so quickly; too quickly to give so much time to not exploring who you are and could be. You do not want to look back in regret at all the joy, memories and experiences you should have had, which you missed by not loving yourself as much as you loved someone else.
Remember that what is given; can be taken away. And if it does they could end up having taken something far greater from you than just your heart; like all the chances you had to live.
Your lives and who you are, are something which should be ‘shared’ with each other; not given up for each other.
Find perfection in life in every moment; do not settle for second best.
Taste all in your short time here that you wish to; so that you do not feed regret.
Never stop searching for EXACTLY what it is you are looking for, especially when it comes to the person you give your heart to.
For believe me when I say; that it is much easier to mend a broken heart, than it is to mend a broken life.
