You can’t deserve a person’s love. You’ll drive yourself crazy thinking like that. They either love you, or they don’t. That doesn’t mean you weren’t good enough for them to love you, because love isn’t something you earn by being good enough. It isn’t something that can be quantified or doled out. Don’t blame yourself for not being loved how you need to, just teach yourself how to look for love where love lives.
This isn’t just about romantic love, or even skewed towards romantic love, although it does apply there too. One of the hardest things I’ve ever had to accept is that my mother simply wasn’t someone who was capable of loving me, and there is no version of me that I could have ever been that would have earned that love. But with acceptance came healing. I was able to love myself more instead of resenting myself for not being more than any one person could be.
Are you listening? Even love for yourself isn’t earned. It is a kindness you give yourself.
*me, flirting* so which songs are you going to permanently associate with me?

compliment recklessly! say the nice things that come to your head! we’ve got better things to do than resisting the instinct to be kind!
STOP! are you operating on an arbitrary set of terms and rules known only to you? have you created an ultimatum or specific if/then scenario for someone else without communicating it to them? have you considered making a decision and calculated all the consequences and potential reactions to those consequences and consequences for those reactions before you actually made the decision? it may be time to say some words out loud to another person!
i just wanna sit and look at you
one of the most toxic things i’ve ever done is ignore the bad in someone because i love them
SOMETIMES THE MOST DAUNTING PART OF A CHALLENGE IS STARTING IT! ONCE YOU BEGIN, YOU WILL SEE IT’S NOT SO SCARY OR DIFFICULT! AND YOU CAN ALWAYS TAKE A BREAK AND COME BACK TO IT LATER! ALL YOU HAVE TO DO FIRST IS START!!
my love language is words of affirmation but not in a “tell me im pretty and that you love me” kind of way more like “tell me you’ve been listening to the playlist i made for you and look at the memes i sent you when you’re sad”
