be soft. do not let the world make you hard. do not let pain make you hate. do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.

  • i am thankful for the days where i remind myself that my love is not my weakness and my softness does not make me any less strong. / being passionate, kind, or soft is NEVER a weakness and is so very courageous.
  • don’t let anyone tell you that it’s a bad thing to feel things deeply. a full heart is a strong heart and being soft doesn’t make you weak. being soft and loving makes you radiant. you deserve all of the love in the world and so many good things.
  • all i see are posts about how girls are supposed to be strong and confident and take no shit, but some girls aren't like that. some girls are shy or quiet or have anxiety or they are insecure or have mental illnesses, so here's to all of them because they don't get appreciated enough.
  • don't you dare, for one minute, believe that my kindness makes me anything but insurmountable. i did not unzip my chest to every kind of hurt, and stagger back, wounded and alive, just to hear you call me weak for trying.
  • i’ve stopped being sorry for all my soft. i won’t apologize because i miss you, or because i said it, or because i text you first, or again. i think everyone spends too much time trying to close themselves off. i don’t want to be cool or indifferent, i want to be honest.
  • you are your own goodness and the whole heartedly loving thing has never really been your weakness. your weakness is loving so much that you sometimes do not give it back to yourself. but sweet friend you have to learn that it all comes back, it all comes back around and what you give is what you will get and it will come to you in time. you will get this love back and it will make you so proud of all those that have felt it from you and your lovely heart. you should be so proud of yourself. the love is coming.
  • i used to dislike being sensitive. i thought it made me weak. but take away that single trait, and you take away the very essence of who i am. you take away my conscience, my ability to empathize, my intuition, my creativity, my deep appreciation of the little things, my vivid inner life, my keen awareness to others pain and my passion for it all.
  • i'm committed to being kind. in my pain, in my struggle, in my ego and insecurity, i commit to being kind.
  • i hope that you do not let the world condemn you for being too loud, too expressive, too soft; that you do not let it convince you to be perfect instead of real. i truly hope that you celebrate the fact that you are not for everyone, that you are not impressing the kinds of people who were built on the foundations of a sad world. if there is anything you do, please, let yourself rejoice in the fact that you do not fit in, that you think differently, because there is a chaos that laughs inside of you and it is going to change lives. it is going to make even the cynics believe again. it is going to grow love from thorn and glass.
  • be emphatic, be kind, be understanding. but be strong, be honest, be assertive.
  • if you have been brutally broken, but still have the courage to be gentle to others then you deserve a love deeper than the ocean itself.
  • don’t be afraid to feel too much, speak too much. in a world where hearts are as cold as ice, and words are being drawn back because of the fear of rejection, always say how you feel. you never know how kind words help people with their own battle. words are powerful, they can either kill a person, or help a wound heal faster. the choice is yours to use it.
  • i wish you could see my true nature. beyond my body and labels, there is a river of tenderness and vulnerability. beyond stereotypes and assumptions, there is a valley of openness and authenticity. beyond memory and ego, there is an ocean of awareness and compassion.
