If it isn't given, it isn't worth having...
They say one day someone will just walk into your life and make you realise why it never worked out with others. Well, till this day comes, I'm hopeful one day it will, I'll look after my heart. No more rescuing in my heroic act, no more giving without getting anything back, and most importantly, no more staying if someone does not want to stay with my heart :)
May we always love who we are, who we have become and who will be... This is our strength and may we love our scares, see our weaknesses and channel them to keep living the good life that we deserve.
