Maybe by keeping our feelings on lock down...by keeping people locked out we're breaking our own hearts. It's not something we want to hear orthink about or even something we want to accept.
But we contribute to our pain. When people want to help and we want help but refuse it.
When we remain silent of our own good will and battles and we don't speak out when we know what is happening doesn't benefit us... we seemingly let ourselves down.
We break our hearts by accepting that we are undeserving of love or affection. We break our own hearts by not owning the fact of how wonderful we are, by hoping other people's affirmations will be the reason we can look at ourselves and love ourselves again
By hoping that someone's words, actions, or insights will be the reason we can get up is not a bad thing. But we let ourselves down when we believe someone else's thoughts, actions or insights instead of our own are the only one's that matter.
When we let ourselves believe our worth is based off only what other people think or have to say about us we fall down.
When we let ourselves remain let down, when we can't see the good of things that are right in front of us... we forget who we really are.
I can't see the good, or the beauty, or the love that I can offer someone else, I continually let myself down by believing countless lies. You deserve someone who is interested in you instead of believing you can't exist for someone great.
Someone who will continually love you one through all you are, and all you have.
We need to work toward our achievements, our goals, and our insights. If we are interested in someone we should work toward telling them.
We shouldn't underestimate ourselves, and our existence. We shouldn't move toward thinking we are worth nothing. When it comes to our lives, our hearts, and what we want - we should always strive to just go for it, even if it doesn't end up the way we might think it would.
Heartbreak sucks, don't get me wrong - but letting ourselves down by at least attempting to go after it is even worse. It is a chance to try and claim something we long for. And when we don't at least try to go for it, we break ourselves down and simply settle for less.
Don't continue to let other people's ideas or thoughts keep you down.
You are breaking your own heart by refusing to express how you feel or go after what you really want. By acting like you don't care, or caring too much about what other people think.
You can't keep waiting around hoping for other people to be the answer. You have to once be your own answer. Be honest with yourself about where you are at, and chase after the things that will help you move forward.
Don't be the one to continue to break your own heart. Be the one to move forward for your sake, and go after all that there is.
