I Refuse Too: Be_you, Dedicated to Love and Girl
I refuse to let the wrong ones make me less vulnerable. I’ll always be vulnerable around someone I like. I’ll always be softer when it comes to someone I care about and I will always be honest. I refuse to play games and play hard to get. I refuse to be mean or selfish.
I refuse to let the wrong ones make me give up on love. I refuse to accept that real love doesn’t exist anymore. That almost all relationships are the new norm. That you’re lucky if you can get past a third date. I refuse to believe that modern dating is love. Maybe it’s much harder to find something real, but it’s there. It exists.
I refuse to let the wrong ones change my heart. I refuse to let them win. I refuse to let them change the way I love. The way I care. The way I feel when I give someone the best of me. I refuse to let them convince me that this is only going to let people walk over me. I refuse to let them convince me that this will always end in heartbreak. They’re not always right. Maybe they get what they want temporarily, but they won’t find their forever. Maybe they feel good at the moment but they won’t feel great down the line.
Sometimes people are ahead of others in the game of love, they understand it, they cherish it, they appreciate it and it’s up to them to make the world a better place, to give people the love they’re not used to, to be a breath of fresh air in their polluted world.
Sometimes it may take others a while to catch up with us, and they may even push us away because they don’t know what to do with hearts like ours but that shouldn’t stop us from being who we are or changing the way we love.
If anything, it should make us fight for it, it should make us even more determined because we know that if the tables were turned, we would want that kind of love, we would want kind hearts and vulnerable souls and honest feelings. And it’s only fair to give what we want to receive — no matter what the outcome may be.
