Giving someone your heart who then CHOOSES to abuse it doesn’t make YOU stupid…⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It means you were hopeful… ⁠⠀
and hope is everything.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Sure, you could have told yourself you knew better,⁠⠀
listened to the red flags,⁠⠀
but people generally opt for giving people a chance.⁠⠀
We WANT to believe it!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Innocent until proven guilty…⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The Universe truly does WANT us ALL to thrive… but, it won’t happen if you only use your previous pain for sabotage.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
That false hope led me to higher heights than I ever knew…. never had even imagined being possible for me.⁠⠀
I had everything, even if it was all in my head.⁠⠀
And I’d do it all over again.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Sure, it hurt like fucking hell had gouged me through the heart, personally.⁠⠀
But “smooth seas never made for a skilled sailor.”⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Don’t lose your hope for a better world, ⁠⠀
or a better you.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Don’t let other people’s pain and bitterness harden your heart, it won’t do you any good.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Protecting yourself from feeling is like living inside a glass bubble… and where is the fun in that?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Life can be an uphill battle…⁠⠀
and sure, some heavy ass rocks might fall on your delicate head when you’re climbing up a ridiculous mountain…⁠⠀
and it will fucking hurt like a mf and make you want to quit.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But you will get there,⁠⠀
and it will be that much more rewarding.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Don’t beat yourself up for seeing what others don’t,⁠⠀
or for believing what others simply won’t.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Just keep going. You WILL make it… I promise you.⁠⠀

Even if it is against all odds…
