open yourself up to love at all times
"I try to talk to you, but I don't know what to say. I am afraid you don't want me to say anything. So I don't. But inside of me there are words waiting to come out and tell you how I feel-like how I miss you. And how I love you despite my broken heart, and how I need you in my life, and especially how much I want you. But those words may forever stay in my heart-locked inside. Sometimes I wonder if there are words locked inside you too... but I'll never know.”
When it comes to love and relationships we must never be afraid to express who we are and how our heart feels when it encounters love. While expressing your feelings for someone does not guarantee the other party will feel the same it allows you to take the risk of something magical with the right person.
Expressing your feelings does not make you weak but it allows you to experience true love. There is strength in being vulnerable. Without being vulnerable you can never experience true love. While expressing your feelings, if not returned, you can still have the strength to walk away if love is not reciprocated. Love is a beautiful thing when you allow yourself to experience it.
