"You may not be her first, her last or her only. She's loved before, she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She's not perfect, you aren't either, and the two of you may never be perfect together. But if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold on to her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking of you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break: her heart. So don't hurt her, don't change her, don't analyze and don't expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she's not there." -Bob Marley

It's our job to help others to realize their greatest potential. Because if we don't do it, who will?

Some people create their own storms, then get upset when it rains

“Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.” 

“I have a history of making decisions very quickly about men. I have always fallen in love fast and without measuring risks. I have a tendency not only to see the best in everyone, but to assume that everyone is emotionally capable of reaching his highest potential. I have fallen in love more times than I care to count with the highest potential of a man, rather than with the man himself, and I have hung on to the relationship for a long time (sometimes far too long) waiting for the man to ascend to his own greatness. Many times in romance I have been a victim of my own optimism.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Yet, despite our differences, 
we are all still human.

She's got the eyes of innocence; the face of an angel. A personality of a dreamer and a smile that hides more pain that you can ever imagine.

Holding people away from you, and denying yourself love, that doesn't make you strong. If anything - it makes you weaker. Because you're doing it out of fear. You have to take chances. You have to know when to let go and know when to hold on with everything you've got, and that's what makes us who we are. Taking risks - that's living, being too scared even to try; that's just a waste. We all make a lot of mistakes, but we shouldn't regret things. Because at least we didn't spend a life standing outside, wondering what living would be like.
"To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong."
