My cousins and I! :) Before and After <3
“Sometimes you just have to stop caring. You have to turn off all emotions and feelings to protect yourself from getting hurt. You have to stop caring what other people think of you and be yourself. Sometimes you have to hide it all, and not let anyone know how you feel or what you think. You gotta put a smile on and pretend everything is fine, even when it’s not. Sometimes that’s the only way to save yourself from a broken heart.”
Deep down I’ve realized that’s just how you really are. Even if I begged and pleaded for you to change, I know I‘m not a good enough reason for you to do so. I knew I could never be good enough for YOU, period. I don’t know why I’ve told myself to think any differently.
when you’re happy with your life and just enjoying it, you’ll get an unexpected text. Maybe by this time you’ve already forgotten his number, maybe not. And it’ll be him, wanting to “talk”. Wait, hold up. Remember all those tears you shed, while he shed none. Remember those corny pick up lines, remember the hurt. Look at how happy you are now. Yeah, that’s what I thought. Don’t answer that text.”
…knowing what I know now, I’d do everything exactly the same. Even the stuff that didn’t turn out well because it all leads me to you and you are worth it.
Why do you always find another flaw and accuse me for things that don‘t need to be argued about? You’re making it harder on the both of us. Telling you how I feel has become nearly impossible and I’m really starting to care less and less on how you view me. Seriously, stop pushing me away. Because you’ll be the one hurting in the end when I eventually give up, walk away and never come back.
“She isn’t clingy because she cares. She isn’t psycho because she wants to know who you’re with. She isn’t doubtful because she fears losing you. She isn’t insecure because she thinks another girl isn’t pretty. She isn’t boring because you don’t see her dolled up anymore, she just feels comfortable. Don’t blame her if she doesn’t call you all the time, she doesn’t want you to think she’s crazy. She just wants you to have some space. When you ask your girlfriend if you can do something and she says yes, it doesn’t always mean sure, go ahead. Yes she trusts you, she just doesn’t always trust the people around you. She’s not territorial. She’s not controlling. She just likes you, wants you to stay, and is just being the normal, caring, loving, will-do-anything type of girlfriend she is. So don’t break promises, even though we know you will. So don’t ignore her, even though we know sometimes you do. Don’t take advantage of her kindness, even though you already have. And don’t hurt her. Us girls don’t ask for much, just a moment of your time, a hand to hold, shoulder to cry on, and ears that will actually listen. We don’t expect you to be perfect because we already think you’re perfect for us. Your imperfections just make us love you more and more. So don’t hurt her, because she dropped her guard for you.”
“If you are going to fall in love with me, it’s only fair that you know what you are falling in love with. You are falling in love with my insecurities, and my obsession with trying to figure out what everyone thinks of me. You are falling in love with my immaturity, my constant need to feel loved and appreciated, my overactive tear ducts, my internet obsession. You fall in love with my troubled past, and my hopes and dreams, and how I’m a hopeless romantic at heart. If you fall in love with me, you fall in love with my self-hate and all my imperfections and my perception that nobody could ever love me.
But, you are also falling in love with the way my eyes will smile when I’m with you, the way I’ll text you in the mornings just telling you I hope you have a great day. You’re falling in love with the occasionally humorous and/or thought-provoking things I say, and the way I blush when people ask me about you. But to me, the most important thing will be that you are falling in love with me, despite me thinking that it is impossible.”
