Without Love Prevail
If you want to be happy, be. ~Leo Tolstoy
It gets tiring watching good people suffer from loneliness. They’re incredible and amazing all at once, yet have not found love. Of course their smarts and great personality with all their life experiences mean nothing to them once they decide they need to be in love. All they want is to know what it is like and to be happy then they start believing they need someone else to find that happiness. These wonderful people start to believe that they aren’t good enough, or that something is wrong with them because they haven’t found love yet. Sometimes they’ve had love and lost it, and cannot pull themselves back together long enough to love again without fear. They blame themselves usually for what wasn’t as strong of a love as it seemed.
Nobody really cares if you're miserable, so you might as well be happy. ~Cynthia Nelms
To you good guys out there and you great girls as well, be strong! Be patient because love does not rush or get missed. Be confident because you are worth the world. Be happy as much as possible because once you can please yourself, you can please another. Know that no matter how much hurt you’ve caused or been caused, love is worth the risk over and over. It will not make or break you if you’re smart about taking that risk. It will make you happy, satisfied, and not empty anymore. You will always fear the hurt again, but you have to know that the risk of pain for a moment or a lifetime of love is far more valuable than none at all. If you get hurt, you’ll get back up again. You must get back up in order to take the risk again. You’ll be stronger in the long run. So, love with all you have even if it’s just yourself until that person or those people come along and make your dreams come true.
Can anything be so elegant as to have few wants, and to serve them one's self? ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
