…because it happens.
Love is such a strange thing. It can be the cause of the happiest moments in your life and it also has the potential to make you experience the worst pain imaginable. It all depends on how the tables turn in your life at the time. It’s a risk, but it’s a risk that is always worth taking. You guys know that I am a firm believer that love always wins, but that’s only if you let it. Sometimes we shut love out because we’re scared. Sometimes we shut love out because we’re worried about what other people might say. Other times we shut love out because it doesn’t fit our ideal picture in our minds, but it feels right. Love. Feels. Right. It’s an indescribable feeling, love. It’s the thing that makes being scared and taking the risk so worth it. Still, choosing love is not always the “safe” move and that risk causes a lot of people to miss out on real love. That’s just the bottom line. You could be in a relationship that feels good, but not great. We all know that life is too short for bad coffee and mediocre love. If you’re not with the person you truly love… what’s the point? So, what do you do when the person you want isn’t the person you’re with? There’s not a lot to be said, but still there’s someone out there who needs to hear it. Let’s get into it!
I don’t ever want to sound like I have all the answers because I don’t, but I have failed at love enough to have an opinion–and still I believe in love so much that I never let anything stop me from taking the risk of achieving the real thing. When the person you want isn’t the person you’re with, the best life you’ll be able to live is a content one. Is “living your best life” not everyone’s goal in 2018? When you choose what feels comfortable over what feels real and right, you sell yourself short every time. The heart has a very keen way of communicating with you. It all sounds so cliché, but I mean, really think about a time when you were head over heels in love. It wasn’t because you said it or because they said it. It wasn’t because of something tangible. It was a feeling. It was the feeling of not wanting to do life without them. And when you make that decision to do life without them, you will always have that ‘ShouldWouldaCoulda’ and ‘What if?’ in the back of your mind.
On top of that, you’re selling the person you’re with short. Even if you truly love them you’re doing them a disservice because they will never get your full heart. They will never experience the true depths of your love–because we all know you can’t give someone your full heart when parts of it are with someone else. It’s not right. The sad thing is, most times you are with the person you’re with because you don’t want to hurt them. For whatever reason you chose them over your true love, you are trying to convince yourself that it’s enough. And if you’re willing to settle, then it is. But don’t settle. Choose love.
Please, choose love.
