I didn’t plan on writing anything today but I am feeling grateful for the amount of love I have in my life despite the heartbreaks and break ups. I want to keep this short and write out my love lessons.
1. Sometimes you can only love someone from a distance
I never understood this until now. Once upon a time I fell in love with a beautiful girl and we dated but things ended. We didn’t talk for a year until she reached out to me out of nowhere. I wanted to give us another chance and I did. I thought she changed but still kept playing with my feelings and I cut off communication for good. I have never stopped thinking about her but I know that I can only love her from a distance to protect my heart.
2. Don’t look for romance, let it find you
I know this is so cliché but it is true. A year ago I stopped looking for any romantic relationship or connection but I met someone I really liked and we dated. Unfortunately, we stopped seeing each other. The point is just don’t look for romance and see how life surprises you.
3. You are worthy of unconditional love
I was told that commitment and love wasn’t for me because I struggle with my mental health. Let me be clear: I don’t care who you are but you deserve healthy and unconditional love from your partner, family, and friends. Remember that your struggles don’t define you at all.
4. Love doesn’t have to be a person
Love can be something you are so passionate about.
5. Listen to your sixth sense, that gut feeling
You know what I mean, that feeling in your gut and uneasiness you feel with this person, listen to it. If something doesn’t sit well with you, that’s a red flag and you need to leave. I have gone through this too many times and now I know my “sixth sense” is correct.
6. Love yourself
OH MY GOSH, PLEASE JUST LOVE WHO YOU ARE. This is what I am currently trying to do by healing my wounds and finding peace. Be grateful for the support and love you have from your family, friends or partner. If they love you then why don’t you love yourself? I can’t even imagine how much more I will enjoy life once I fall in love with myself 100%
Okay, that’s all I have for now! Feel free to tell me what lessons you have learned when it comes to love!
