They are not perfect.
Your heart is scarred because of them. Some wounds haven’t healed yet and I know it still hurts. Some get reopened as the memories come back to haunt you.
They have treated you like you are worthless, used you like you didn’t even matter. They hurt you when you needed them most, without so much as the blink of an eye.
They took advantage of you. Your kindness. Your ability to love someone wholeheartedly and stand by them in support.
They needed you but chose to ignore you. They needed to heal themselves but wouldn’t allow themselves to be helped.
They aren’t perfect, but neither are you.
You care too much, love too hard, and get attached too easily. But that is what makes you so unique. Not everyone can be as kind as you after all the hardships you have gone through.
You are strong and can get hotheaded when you need to be. You may be soft-spoken and sweet, but you know when to stand up for yourself and you can be overprotective of the people you love.
The way people have treated you has affected you. You are so broken and it has torn you apart, but once you put the pieces back together, you come back stronger. That strength does come back with an attachment of wariness.
You cut people out of your life. Unfortunately, situations have caused you to do so for the safety and protection of your heart.
I know there will be someone meant for you. Who will never hurt you. Who won’t lie to you. Someone that will protect you instead of someone that tears you down.
You deserve someone who will love you for you. Someone who is worthy of all the love in that heart of yours.
I want you to have the world, and someone you can share it with. Not that you need anyone because you are so strong and independent.
Once you find that person, though, they will see you for who you are. All of your quirks and weird behaviors, your heart that is so full of love, and your ability to care about someone so much.
You will be OK. As broken as you are right now, it won’t last forever.
They are not perfect. But neither are you.
