Nothing Truly Beautiful Ever Asks For Attention (Why You Shouldn’t Chase Love)

The most awe-inspiring person you will ever have the privilege of loving will plant their feet firmly in front of you and say, “This is what I want.” There will be courage, transparency. There will be declaration, and certainty.

The love you deserve will not exist within insecurity, there will be no need for you to compare yourself to others or compete. The most awe-inspiring person you will ever have the privilege of loving will choose you every single day, and you will choose them just the same. And if there ever comes a time where you cannot hold their heart within your hands, if there ever comes a time where you cannot contain all of the love you are receiving — the love you deserve will known when to lay down its arms. It will know when to stop fighting. You will not feel the need to grip, you will not feel the need to chase something that fails to fulfill you or inspire you. You will walk away knowing that you experienced something rare, that it grew you in ways you will discover as you move forward and put yourself back together again. That is the kind of love you deserve.
