I completely despise myself as a person, but one of the very few traits that I pride myself on is my ability to hold myself back before jumping into anything.
It’s been a great advantage for me when it comes to the matters of the heart, since I’ve seen so many broken ones amongst my friends and loved ones.
Seeing them sad and pining for love taught me one thing.
To love myself before I gathered up the courage to try and love anyone else.
To love myself enough to have the ability to despise myself for the things I know I should hate, and be okay with myself.
Love the little things about myself like my ability to hold myself back and not jump into things. (Deja Vu, amirite?)
Love myself enough that I don’t need anyone else to, before opening myself up to all the possibilities that relationships bring.
Being single has its perks too.
One of them is to discover just how independent one can be when they have to.
To discover the things about yourself to be proud of.
To discover the things about yourself that you shouldn’t be proud of.
Because you, my friend, are someone worth discovering.
Hope all you people , whether single or in a relationship (and all those for whom ‘it’s complicated’, because love is the most complex simple thing ever) have a great day today!
