The love you have to give radiates off you like steam rolling off the black top on a cool summer morning after a rainstorm. Your love is like the perfect amount of cream in your morning coffee. Your love is like listening to your new favorite song over and over with the windows down on a perfect day. It’s like laughing so hard you can’t control yourself. Your love is like accomplishing something you’ve been working for a while. Your love is like the warm conversation you desperately needed at the end of the day.
Your love is limitless and your love is infinite. You have so much love to give, and so many people appreciate it. But some never will.
You can’t change the fact some people hate the rain. You can’t change the fact that some people hate cream in their coffee, or that they hate coffee in general. You can’t change the fact that some people won’t ever sing along to the radio in the car on a perfect summer day. You can’t change that some people will never open up to you, or anyone for that matter. You have to accept those things about certain people. That doesn’t make them bad people, necessarily; it just makes them different from you.
They might never admit it, but they need love, too. Just because they don’t react the way you hope doesn’t mean they are less deserving of love. Sometimes they are the ones who need it more.
Opening your heart and spreading your love is an incredible gift you give to people. You should never lose that. Even if some people don’t respond to you the way you hoped or kick your spirit down a little, that doesn’t mean you should change who you are to make them happy. Because your love is powerful, your love is healing, and it is brave. Your love is exactly what someone out there needs.
Your love is who you are. Don’t let anyone take that away from you. Just because someone you know closes off their heart and stands strong with their guard up doesn’t mean you should be ashamed of all the love you have in your heart. The fulfilling kind of love that makes you feel like every day is the best day of your life and the best part is that someone will love you back with the same kind of love.
Their love will be like rereading your favorite book. Their love will be like dancing in the rain with a happy heart, then coming inside and taking a hot shower. Their love will be like hitting every green light on the way home after an amazing day. Their love will be like climbing into bed with fresh sheets on. Their love will be hearing “I love you” for the first time from someone you truly care about. Their love will match your love, and everything else will easily fall into place.
