Does she scare you a little? Good. She should make you fear her love, so that when she lets you be apart of it, you won’t take it lightly. She should remind you of the power that beauty brings, that storms reside in her veins, and that she still wants you in the middle of it all. Do not take this soul for granted, for she is fierce, and she can take you places that you never thought you could go; but she is still loving in the midst of it all, like the calm rain after a storm, she can bring life. Learn her, and cherish her, respect her, and love her; for she is so much more than a pretty face, she is a soul on fire.
I don’t know about you, but when I see bridge photos it screams out,

"Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
It roots back to how much you love yourself,
How content you are- seeing your scars and kissing them softly
I will never be tired to constantly remind you that
When you’re content with yourself,
You’re more or less set with everything else
I had other plans in mind for my saturday night- most especially for this day of the month, but it didn’t turn out the way I imagined it to be.
But you know, the conversations I had tonight made up for it.
One of my closest friends came to me talking about how confused she was on handling a specific person in her life. She tells me that they had planned to go out on a date, however, she had to cancel unexpectedly because of how exhausted she was from school. Upon telling her date she couldn’t make it, he simply shrugged it off and ended the conversation.
I wondered if she was upset because of how this person reacted towards her canceling on their date that night or if she was upset because their date didn’t push through at all even though she wanted to.
She later on admitted that she was frustrated because of both reasons- his reaction and she was looking forward to the date, but she really couldn’t make it.
The next thing we tackled was what she wanted to do next- does she allow her pride to take over and acknowledge being “right” or does she give in to her emotions? Explaining where she’s coming from, asking the person to soften up?
The conversation eventually got even deeper when I told her to just be-
"If that’s how you truly feel, then say it. I honestly believe that there’s no point in hiding your emotions or whatsoever. It isn’t a game and it shouldn’t be seen as one, but that’s how people treat it.
Don’t be afraid to show your truest self, why would you want to change yourself for anyone? Isn’t that the point of getting to know someone- why you would spend time with them, go out with them? If you’re afraid that the person can’t accept you for who you are, then don’t stay. Don’t settle, it’s perfectly fine.
But no matter what, be fair.
Go back to your truest self, but always be fair to him or to anyone else for that matter.”
