I see you and I see a glimmer of light. A rainbow after a cloudy and grim sky. You are sunshine in human form. You are love transcended into a living being. You are a galaxy full of stars and possibilities.
If someone gave you the chance to express your emotions, you would glow like the brightest star in the night sky. If someone believed in you, you would transform into an intense and all-consuming passion. If someone said yes to you, you would get out of your way to show them that you are ready to love unconditionally. If someone took your hand and put all of their hope into you, your fire would only become brighter and stronger.
But, like everything else in life, you have to understand that not everyone out there is going to see that flame inside of you. You will learn this the hard way, but there are going to be people who will not be able to perceive the sparkle inside your soul. These people won’t need you to warm their hearts, because they will prefer the cold. These people won’t need your light because they will prefer darkness. Some of them will even use your emotions to make you mad and your sensitivity to blame you for everything.
There will be people that will not be strong enough to endure the intensity of your love.
There will be people that will give up after seeing how vulnerable and fragile your heart is.
There will people that will take you for granted. And some that will do everything in their power to transform you into something that they need.
There will be people that will tell you that you are not enough and will try to make you feel worthless.
There will be people that will stab you in the back once they get the chance.
There will be people that will be bothered by the blinding light that shines from your heart. And some that will desperately try to cut off your wings.
It will break your heart to realize that not everyone is as pure as you are, but that will be the lesson that will show you the way to your new journey in life.
The journey of self-cognizance and eventually, SELF-LOVE.
The journey that will prove to you that you don’t necessarily need another person to make your fire burn brighter and stronger. That you don’t necessarily need someone else to transform into an intense, fiery passion. That you don’t necessarily need another human being to glow like the brightest star in the night sky.
Always remember. You deserve to feel the love that you are giving to everyone else. You deserve the love that you unconditionally show to this world. You deserve to be loved by someone who won’t be afraid of the magnitude of your heart. You deserve to be caressed by someone who won’t be scared by your fearless roar. You deserve to be kissed by someone who will encourage you to fly and explore yourself. You deserve to be loved by someone who will take care of that flame inside of you.
And if you don’t find that person, you deserve to give that same love to yourself.
