Like a rose
Beautiful on touch, sight and scent, yet can pierce your skin and bleed you out.
That is love, the beauty of it is worth the pain,
Just like a bittersweet chocolate, sweet, yet bitter, but you just can't stop.

Adventure
Mistakes are worth making, take that chance and see where it leads you, it may be scary, but that's life, it's an adventure in itself, so why not spice it up with some more adventure?

Life teaches
It's up to you to learn and apply,
And to learn some more.
To make good decisions and respect people.

Follow your heart
Do what your heart desires,
Because at the end of your life, you'll be wondering why you tried so hard to please whom you were trying to please. Fulfillment is from within your heart.

It cripples your well being.

The more you chase love, the more it evades you.

You're not alone
The pain of loneliness when you're surrounded by a multitude;
It stings really deep.

When it comes to pouring out your heart, strangers are the best people to talk to. Zero judgment, all ears.
This is a beautiful place to find such "strangers" because people are open minded.
Whatever you're feeling, you're never alone. Talk to someone.
It's well understood sometimes that a problem shared amongst peers sometimes tends to become a topic of discussion, but right here, feel at home. I'm all ears and so are other people.
Realism is evidence based,
Pessimism is assumption based.

Friends
Louden your laughter,

Unveil the dancer in you,

Hold you up like a bra does to *****,

Enlighten your burdens,

Shine light into your darkness.

That's what friends are for!

Hope lives!
I wonder, has there existed a time like this one?
When everyday feels like the last, fear looms and moves so freely its everywhere,
Breathing in fear, inhaling it..
While exhaling hope and faith,
Losing ourselves to the calamity that has befallen us.
But hope lives. Be grateful for each day that comes and make it count. Drown yourself in what makes you happy. Shut out what drains you. Hope lives!

Completion
No one completes you.
Don't ever esteem someone that highly.
People change,
Be complete on your own,so that even when your heart breaks, your whole being is not torn apart.

Crawl into my heart,

What better way to love someone than intentionally?
Not because you have no choice but because you chose them.

Tip
Tip
When you feel underappreciated is when you should toot your own horn, clap for yourself and pat your own back. Because sometimes people don't even know what you know about what you've been through, you know best what you deserve and if no one gives it to you, give it to yourself! Remind yourself of what you deserve without waiting for someone else to give it to you. Love yourself enough to be your number one fan and to applaud yourself!
It carries more weight.

If it's who i am
Take it,
Or
Leave it.
Do not force people to change or take paths they're not ready to go down on.

Loyalty
Loyalty.. When you find loyalty in humanity, treasure it.
We are a rotten bunch,
With unmended hearts and bitter souls,
Striking at any available victim.
Not because we want to but because we are damaged.
However, loyalty still remains a choice.
No matter how many times you got hurt, maintain your integrity. Do your part in being good. It really pays off.
If you're good and someone hurts you, they lose a good thing.

Like a Book
Open my whole being and read me,
Cautiously flip each page having understood.
And where the grammar is wrong, correct me without changing my context.
Highlight your favorites, bookmark your most memorable.
And when you find your chapter,
Let's begin to write together.

Sometimes, breathing is all it takes.
You can passively survive,
Activity can be choking.
Rest. Relax.

......
We're so caught up in ourselves that we think that everytime someone is quiet on us, they're trying to compete for who's going to call first or text first. Well sometimes people genuinely don't want to communicate, whilst other times it just feels like they're giving you work to do, they feel like a burden and they choose to be aloof. Sometimes they just want to know who really cares. But we're all so caught up within ourselves. Showing that you love someone doesn't hurt, it heals. The pride that stops us from doing so is the exact guilt that will help us regret not reaching out. While people sincerely love to be alone sometimes, we all appreciate a little care, a little hi, a hello. From the heart. Not to strike a conversation but just to check up on someone.

Follow your heart
"Follow your heart, " they say
But don't they know, it's too broken to take the lead?
How does one follow scattered, shattered pieces, they're all over the place, so where exactly should she follow..

Hearts
Hearts don't break instantly,
They break gradually.
We see the signs and brush them off. We only want to see the best and we do. When your heart breaks, dots are connected.

...
The same way animals have species,
Is the same way humans have species.
No two beings are the same.
I am my own specie..
Therefore I can't compare myself to the next person,
Can a lion be compared to a fish? No. Why? Because they're two different things. Do not dare do that. Do not pressure yourself looking at the next person, you aren't them. Do life at your own pace. Envy is poison.

Comparison
Uniquely approach life,
Yours is different from everyone else's.
Comparison is a thief of joy for sure because we compare ourselves to people who aren't us.

Love
If you truly loved you never die,
Because you give a part of you that goes out to be part of the universe and lives forever, traversing mortality.

You never know whose lips you'll curve into a smile,
You never know whose heart you're holding together.
