“You wish you didn’t need people or their love and wouldn’t it be so much easier just to let you be you?”

“Baby, I know you’re tired; tired of not feeling good enough, tired of always been second choice. I know you want to curl into a ball and let the ocean sweep you away. You could be a mermaid or a sea-nymph or a siren and you could spend your life leading sailors to their death. You wish you didn’t need people or their love and wouldn’t it be so much easier just to let you be you? 

But baby, humans are social creatures and you may be an introvert but that does not mean you can spend your life in a cave. It’s okay to want love and it’s okay to chase people who always seem three miles ahead. Unrequited feelings are bad but they are not the end of the world. There is so much more to life than a heart which does not beat for you.”
