В мире существует так много видов любви.
Есть романтическая любовь, то самое чувство, которое ты испытываешь, когда он берет тебя за руку в машине или целует в лоб, делая мир более упорядоченным.
Есть платоническая любовь, когда вы вместе с другом смеётесь до тех пор, пока уже не сможете дышать, над самым тупым видео в истории YouTube или когда человек останавливается посреди комнаты, чтобы улыбнуться тебе. Когда ты смотришь в свой телефон, чтобы увидеть сообщение: ''ты добрался домой?" от своего друга.
Есть семейная любовь, когда твоя мама обнимает тебя в то время, как ты буквально разваливаешься на части, а ты даже не говорила ей об этом. Или когда папа возвращается домой после тяжёлого рабочего дня и все ещё находит силы спросить о том, как прошел твой день.
Есть страстная любовь к путешествиям, когда ты опускаешь окна в машине, впуская звуки океана, или когда испытываешь совершенно новое удовольствие от посещения незнакомого места. Любовь к тому, как барабанит дождь по оконному стеклу.
Существует даже любовь животных, когда твоя собака восторженна встречей с тобой, потому что тебя не было дома весь день, или когда твоя кошка спит на твоей груди, будто защищая.
Есть любовь к себе, когда ты позваляешь себе маникюр, танцуешь нелепые танцы, потому что так хочется, или даже просто делаешь выбор выбраться из кровати этим утром.
Ты не должен переживать или грустить по поводу того, что один из видов любви отсутствует в твоей жизни в данный момент. Ты будешь приобретать и терять маме разные виды любви всю свою жизнь. У тебя есть целая жизнь, чтобы стать частью красоты любви во всех ее формах.
💌"When you meet someone who tries their hardest to stick by you regardless of how difficult you are, keep them. Keep them at all costs because finding someone who cares enough to look past your flaws isn’t something that happens every day."
💌"I do believe in the idea that once you feel the littlest love for someone, it never leaves, you can think of all the terrible things they’ve done, all the annoying little things they do, how they constantly steal the blankets and you can never get a goodnight sleep, how they constantly act too needy, all the little things they’ve said that didn’t sit right with you. Or you can really dig deeper, which takes a lot more patients and a lot more self discipline, to kind of dig down into those memories…those memories that just seem to be dreamy in a way. They have that beautiful glow that just radiates pure happiness, as you see yourself, and this other person, and the smiles on your faces are so extremely uncontrollable, that smile you try to hide around others, but in this moment you couldn’t even give a fuck about your insecurties, as you are just so extremely caught up in the beauty of that moment, the beauty that you both create.” Via~ @thefragilitylesson
💌"this valentine’s let us remember all the different types of love. love is drinking that first sip of coffee on an early sunday morning. love is the way that you and your siblings laugh about silly things till your tummy hurts. love is the way that the trees change. there is romantic love, sure. it’s the way that your partners hand touches your cheek before they kiss you. it’s the way you fit together when you’re asleep. it’s the up all night talking about anything and everything because you just don’t want to say goodnight. love is when you look in the mirror and smile. love is when you put your hair up and tuck in that extra strand behind your ear. love is self care, love is having that piece of cake. romantic love isn’t the only one. romantic love will come in time and you do not need to rush it. it will come when it does and it will be so worth it. they will be so worth it. don’t settle for mediocre, you are so much better than that. so if you find yourself a little alone on this holiday, remember that your love is the best love, that romantic love will come in time, that you can totally eat all that chocolate by yourself with no judgement, and that you’re never really alone. you have you and that’s one of the most beautiful loves i have ever known.” Via~ @wildfiresss
💌"Why should a relationship mean settling down? Wait for someone who won’t let life escape you, who’ll challenge you and drive you towards your dreams. Someone spontaneous you can get lost in the world with. A relationship, with the right person, is a release not a restriction.” — Beau
"love is terrifying. it’s like music, i think.
you find a song that becomes your favorite, and then you listen to it on repeat until you eventually get bored of it. your music is on shuffle, and every time that one song rolls around you always skip it. but you can never bare to delete it.
is that what it’s like when love dies?"
💌"This is to every girl who has ever tried a little too hard.
To the girls who miss people and aren’t afraid to say it.
The one’s who are told their vulnerability is a weakness.
This is to every girl who is told she needs to change and be different than who she is to win someone over.
This is to every girl who has ever gotten her hopes up and been disappointed.
The ones who wear their hearts on their sleeve. To every girl has ever been told she’s too easy to read.
This is to every girl who doesn’t hurt others because they’d never want someone to feel the way they have.
This is to every girl who has had to be strong enough to pick up the broken pieces of her heart.
To every girl who is broken but still loves anyway. The ones who try too hard.
The ones who love too deeply.
The ones who believe in love despite a lot of heartbreak.
This is to every girl who has ever gone more than halfway.
The ones who would do anything for the people they care about, but would never ask for help in return.
This is to every girl who thinks they are flawed.
This is to every girl who has ever settled and accepted less than she deserved.
I want you to know it takes a rare type of person to see the good in someone when you’re presented with bad. To keep going. To keep believing. To keep giving, and loving.
So this is to every girl who refuses to settle. I want you to know it’ll happen soon.
This is to every girl who hasn’t gotten what she deserves. Yet.
I want you to hold onto faith.
I don’t want you to change.
Because one day everything you continue to give to people who don’t deserve it, will come back to you.
One day — you’re going to be loved the way you love others. One day, you will find someone who understands your depth.
One day, you will be rewarded for your heart.
💌"You’ve got to work on yourself day by day. you’ve got to remember that your entire life is a work in progress. That you’re going to have bad days but also good ones to balance everything out. You’ve got to know that sometimes your going to get your heart broken, while other times, you’re the one who’s going to cause the hurting. you’ve got to accept that nothing ever goes as planned and that nothing is perfect. You’ve got to realize that what you feel is never wrong and that you must always trust your intuition but also accept the consequence of things."
💌"When you’re the person who is always there for others — you feel a lot. You have depths within you, an ocean for a heart, and you sometimes fall for people who are too afraid to swim. You give and you give and you give. You never know how to stop yourself from pouring into those you love.
And so, there are moments where a tender ache sometimes forms within your unhinged chest. There are moments where you are left wondering if someone will ever give you the love you so freely give to others, moments where you wonder if there will ever come a time when someone asks how you are doing, how you are coping, how you are healing .
See, sometimes the person who is always there for everyone else, needs someone there for them. Sometimes, the person who smiles the biggest holds the biggest hurt. Sometimes the person who encourages everyone around them needs to be told that they are appreciated, that they matter; sometimes they need to be encouraged, sometimes they need to be held — no matter how strong they seem, no matter how brightly they shine.
So, if you’re the person who is always there for others, know that your heart is rare. Know that you hold within you an ability to calm storms in people. Know that you give people hope, that you inspire them by acknowledging the pieces of them most ignore, that you make people feel wanted, that you make people feel like they have purpose .
However, also remind yourself that you are not invincible. Your heart needs rest. You need rest. Remind yourself that you do not need to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders, that you may not be able to save everyone, that you may not be able to heal every hurt. Remind yourself that you deserve to take all of the energy you put out into the world and invest it back into yourself from time to time. That you are worthy of the love you keep giving to everyone else. Remind yourself, that you don’t always have to be strong, that you don’t always have to be the fixer. Remind yourself that you can be human, that you can ask for help; that you don’t always have to be the one to save yourself.” Words via @rainbowsalt
💌"Find someone who loves you well. Someone who never belittles you. Even in the heat of an argument. Someone who is gentle with you, but does not treat you like you are fragile. Someone who knows what you are capable of, and celebrates those pieces of you. Not someone who is intimidated by your strength. Someone who doesn’t make you feel guilty for being flawed. It is not love’s job to punish you. And remember the person you love is just as broken as you are when they fall short. No one is perfect – do not hold them to this standard. Find someone who is patient, forgiving, and apologetic. Someone who practices forgiveness freely and often. Love someone who is humble, kind, and empathetic. Not only with you, but with a beggar on the street, or a stranger in the supermarket. Common courtesy is important. Compassion is important. Kindness is important." 🌹
💌"i want you to be afraid of losing me. i want the thought of losing me to be engraved in every decision you make. i want you to think: what if she doesn’t come back? what will i do then? maybe i shouldn’t make this decision that risks that. because i’m tired of being on the losing end of the bad decisions people make. i’m tired of being hurt, of my feelings not being put into consideration, of being someone who always comes back and loves through the wreckage. i refuse to come back anymore. i refuse to give out second chances, third chances, chances you never deserved in the first place. because if you make a decision that will destroy me, you are running the risk of losing me. and if you make it anyway, you don’t want me bad enough to keep me. and i’m done being the back-up character in your sad attempt of figuring out what you want. i want someone who knows they love me. i want someone who screams they love me. i want someone who would be devastated if i left. because i deserve that. i deserve someone who never puts our relationship at risk.”

💌"But a long-distance romance can be a beautiful thing. It builds trust and commitment very early on in the relationship and gives way for more deeper and meaningful conversations. There’s more time for solitude, self-exploration and inner growth for the both of you and there’s more room for appreciation and less space for possession. There’s more magic when you kiss the lips of the person you love after thirty days of not seeing each other knowing that he or she will always be your destination.
-You will always be my destination
