Having a brave and pure heart in a cruel world like this is not a weakness, it is a sign of bravery. Loving unconditionally and having a vulnerable soul means that you would never settle for anything less than real emotion, even if you end up getting hurt in the process of finding it. It is a rare, remarkable quality that only a few of us possess.
And even though it is considered the greatest gift a person can have, there is always a dark side to every story.
You are the person everyone else counts on. You are the one who is always there to comfort people’s souls. You are the person who picks up the heavy load with their own bare hands and carries the sadness of the world on their own shoulders. The one who is always taken for granted.
You are the one who cannot live their life by holding grudges. The one who likes to forgive and forget. The one who never judges the actions of others, but rather tries to find the reasons for their unacceptable behavior and help them change. The person who searches for the meaning in everything but also the one who gets easily judged and misunderstood…
You are the person who cannot say no to other people. You’ve seen so much pain and sadness around you, that you simply don’t want to be just another reason for someone’s tears. You are the person who is always happy to help around and take care of everyone. The person whose heart is a shelter for every soul out there. And because of that, you are used to being hurt.
You are the person who has an incredible amount of love in their hearts and an extraordinary ability to really understand people’s way of thinking. You are the person who possesses a golden heart and believes in the good in people.
Yet, somehow, you are never treated the way you deserve to be treated.
You’re not loved the way you deserved to be loved. You are not taken care of the way you deserve to be taken care of. You are simply not appreciated enough for the things you do.
The ugly, dark side of being someone who cares too much is not getting nearly enough love in return. The bittersweet reality of being someone who is always there for others, even the ones who never did anything for you, is being taken for granted, when you deserve the whole wide world and more instead.
It’s not fair. Nor it is logical.
Because, you deserve everything in this world.
But it is the bitter truth. The unfortunate reality for some of us out there.
The only thing I have to say to all of you out there who are going through this is the same thing I’ve been repeating to myself over and over again.
Do not lose your hopes. Do not give up on your dream to find love no matter how hard this world is trying to destroy you and make you comfortably numb. Do not let anyone make you just another heartless, soulless creature.
Spread love, be love and never stop looking for love.
