we don’t get to choose who we fall for. They may mistreat us, ignore us or hurt us, but we stay with them. Why? It’s not because we’re stupid or we enjoy getting hurt, It’s because we can see the good in them, it’s because despite all the arguments, they are the ones who make us feel a certain way that no one else can & we value that feeling, & because our brains won’t allow them to leave our minds, & our hearts won’t allow them to leave our lives.
As we grow up, we learn that even the person that wasn’t supposed to ever let us down, probably will. You’ll have your heart broken and you’ll break others’ hearts as well. You’ll fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them. You’ll cry because time is flying by. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, forgive freely and love like you’ve never been hurt. Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs and no second chances. You just have to live life to the fullest. Tell someone what they mean to you, tell someone off, speak out, dance in the pouring rain, hold someone’s hand, comfort a friend, fall asleep watching the sun come up, stay up late, be a flirt, smile until your face hurts and don’t ever be afraid to take chances or fall in love. Don’t let anyone you live slip away. Ever. Love them as much as you can every moment you can. But most of all, live in the moment because every second you spend angry or upset is a second of happiness you can’t ever get back.
It's easy to take off your clothes and have sex. People do it all the time. But opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hope, dreams... that is being naked.
