Yeah, people can suck. But not love. Never confuse those two.

People can drain what is left of your will to love, but love in itself is a bottomless well. It can sustain itself however much you can give it, and moreover, and there can never be too much of it. Remember that.

People are who you get sick of, not love. People are those who make you regret ever opening up to someone, only to have it backfire at you. And people are those who can turn this beautiful notion that is love into a manipulative, tiring game of ‘who can play it better’. And I know you’re sick of it. I am, too.

This is why it’s important that you don’t lose your hope in love. Because, when you find it, and you will, you will understand what I’m talking about. You will see that it is not love that sucks, and it is not love that makes your will to get out of bed reduced to a minimum. No. It is the toxic person you let into your life, the one you were not meant to be with in the first place.

Sometimes, people just need to grow and learn to make smarter decisions. Some people are just not ready to be in a committed relationship, so when they enter your life, you only get a half of what they can offer. Don’t let that make you fear the idea of love. Don’t make immature people make you into someone you are not.

The beautiful thing about love is that even though you cannot physically touch it, you can sense it’s there.

Isn’t it magical how something not palpable nor seen with your eyes can make your entire world go round? How something you can never see or explain to do it justice can make you want to get up in the morning? How it can make you want to be a better person and make you more understanding as a woman? If that is not something worth living for, I don’t know what is.

People can make promises and then decide to break them, but love will never do that to you. Love is simply there. It exists, and there is nothing that can change that. You can feel it, but you can’t explain it. You can let it consume you and be in awe of how much it can make everything seem worthwhile.

Sometimes, you lose hope in love because you weren’t strong enough to hold on tighter. Sometimes, it takes double the effort. You have to be prepared to invest yourself in order for it to work. Nothing half-assed is ever going to make it seem worth it. You have to put in the work if you want to enjoy love in the long run.

Love is positive; it is not meant to hurt you. Love is precious, and requires hard work. If you are willing to do whatever is necessary in order to prosper, love will find ways to repay you beyond your wildest dreams.

Be patient. Have faith. A rough patch doesn’t mean it’s a futile battle. It only means there’s a difficult road ahead. Stay on your mission, and don’t let the wrong person make you deviate from your goal. Love is never going to disappoint you. Only people will.

If you are feeling lost right now, use that time to work on yourself. Reevaluate your definition of love. Try to figure out why you are feeling this way and if there is a solution. There always is. Just have some patience, and you will see it, too.

Love will surprise you when you least expect it. And when it does, this troubling time will seem so silly. This is what love is. It tests you before it completes you. Just hold on tight, and never lose hope. Love will find you when you find yourself.
