Assumption and lack of communication are the number one relationship killers. We all perceive differently; we’ve lived different lives and we have different views. Understand that before getting angry at someone for not believing what you believe and/or feel.
If you ever fall in love, fall in love with someone who wants to know your favourite colour and how you like your coffee. Fall in love with someone who loves the way you laugh and would do absolutely anything to hear it. Fall in love with someone who puts their head on your chest just to hear your heart beat. Fall in love with someone who kisses you in public and is proud to show you off to anyone they know. Fall in love with someone who makes you question why you were afraid to fall in love in the first place. Fall in love with someone who falls in love with your flaws and thinks you’re perfect just the way you are. Fall in love with someone who thinks that you’re the one they would love to wake up to each day.
Experience, growth and the will to “try” is far greater than your ability to shut down every time you’re scared and want to play it safe.
