I’ve finally concluded no matter what shape or form my love takes for you, my heart will always protect yours.
I want you to be happy.
Who you love doesn’t hurt me anymore– what hurts me is you not loving yourself enough to know you deserve better.
But I also figured out a long time ago that we only deserve what we settle for.
As for my own heart– well, it hasn’t settled yet, and I’ve never been happier.
