Don’t miss out on life by desensitizing yourself.
People are often scared to say too much, to feel too deeply.
Caring is not synonymous with weak.
Yes, expressing yourself will make you vulnerable, and will make your heart a target for harsh criticism. Not everyone will like your honesty. There’s no denying that.
But please remember, there’s absolutely no shame in it.
Do not let self-doubt steal your softness.
Do not let another soul take your tenderness.
There is breathtaking magic in being honest, in allowing yourself to strip down and be emotionally exposed and naked.
Express, express, express. Open yourself up, do not harden yourself to the world, and be bold in who, and how you love.
That is courage. That is love. That is life.
