Do you happen to know someone like this?
When she loves, she loves with her whole heart. She cares for others more than she cares for herself.
She goes around offering everyone she knows a hand and a shoulder to cry on.
And she does so honestly because she wants to help others, not because anyone asks her to.
She does it willingly because she knows how it feels to be alone in times when you need the most help.
Her heart is filled with love and understanding.
When she looks at people, she sees the stories they’ve lived through and she always finds something good in them.
Because she knows how hard can life get, she’s willing to sacrifice her own happiness to make others happy.
But you know what? Her flame is burning out, her energy is coming to an end and she doesn’t know how much more she can take.
Day after day, she fights harder to put a smile on her face, but again and again, it feels more arduous to do that.
She’s been there for others her whole life but now she needs someone to be there for her.
She’s been holding herself up for too long and now, she feels that she can’t do so anymore.
Over and over again, she has fought other people’s battles, but now she needs someone to fight for her.
She needs someone to offer her words of support and a hand to hold.
But people don’t seem to notice that. They keep waiting for her to welcome them with her wide smile and words of encouragement.
And you know what? She’ll always try to do that, even when she’s falling apart on the inside.
She’ll set aside her own battles to give support to others.
Why? Because she feels that she owes them that.
Why? Because she knows how hard it is to live a life without anyone by your side.
She’s been there, and we could say that she’s still there, so she doesn’t want to make others feel the same way.
She’s strong, but she’s also tired and she needs to rest for a while.
Now, she needs someone to be there for her the way she’s been there for others her whole life.
She knows that she comes off as distant from time to time, but it’s because she can’t take it anymore.
Her heart is breaking and she just needs to fall into someone’s arms to rest her tired soul.
Her previous partners told her that she was cold and that she didn’t know how to love. But they didn’t understand the way she was feeling.
They didn’t understand that she’d been strong for too long. She made herself tired by always being there for others and ignoring her own feelings.
Even now, she still does this. She has never been a priority and she has got to the point where she can’t take it anymore.
Being strong for others while she’s falling apart could shatter her into pieces. Now, she needs love and support and she needs it more than ever.
She needs someone to kiss her on the forehead and tell her that things will be all right.
She needs someone to hold her hand while she’s rebuilding herself.
For a long time, she’s been the one who has made the lives of other people easier. Now, it’s time to have someone who’ll make her life better.
It’s time to have someone around who’ll understand everything that’s going through her mind.
Someone who won’t judge her but who will hug her tight and wipe away her tears.
In the beginning, I asked you whether you know someone like this. Now, I’m asking you whether you are this girl.
Are you the one who’s been strong for others while you were falling apart?
Are you the one who has been the biggest support for all those around you while fighting your battles on your own?
I know that you’ve been trying to distance yourself from others because you feel that they don’t understand you.
However, at the end of the day, you feel sorry for people and you always end up running to them, helping them to not go through life on their own.
I know that you try and regain your energy by daydreaming and wishing for a time when you’ll feel ultimate happiness.
A time when others will finally see your real worth and be there to protect you from your own thoughts.
Because that’s what you need – protection from yourself when you become too harsh on your own body and soul.
You need someone to show you that you matter and that your feelings and emotions are reasonable.
You need someone to show you that you’re allowed to feel everything you are and that there’s nothing wrong with that.
You’ve been a shoulder to cry on for others for too long. It’s finally time to have someone who’ll act the same way for you.
Maybe you don’t know it, but you’re one of the few people whose heart is soft and genuine.
You’ve been taking care of others this whole time but let me ask you something…
Could you please let others take care of you for change? Could you let them help you move through life the way you’ve been helping others?
I know that you’re a fighter and that you’ll keep fighting till the final whistle but that doesn’t mean that you have to be alone your whole life.
You still need support and you need that unconditional love you’ve been giving away to others.
You haven’t saved a bit for yourself so the second someone notices your worth and tries to give you love, ACCEPT IT.
It doesn’t make you weak. It only makes you stronger as your whole life, you have been led by a simple motto – ‘What you give, you receive’.
So why won’t you let yourself receive love and support, as you deserve it?
I know that you need someone to be there for you the way you’ve been there for others your whole life.
So please, take a break and let them do for you the things you’ve done for them.
You deserve to be loved and appreciated because as much as you keep convincing yourself that you can do everything on your own, we all know that it’s impossible.
Take a break and let love come through all those cracks in your heart. Let it help you become the best version of yourself.
