Saying that someone deserves better than you is the poorest excuse you can give. If someone deserves better, be that better person. Be the person they deserve. If they aren’t giving you any reason to not trust them, be vulnerable and trust them. You won’t get anywhere with anyone if you’re not. Push yourself to do new things and find comfort with them while you do it. That’s how you grow and gain experiences in life and with each other. If you’re lucky enough to find someone who makes you want to be a better person, hold onto them and take advantage of every moment.

I guess our grandparents stayed together and shared a life simply because they didn’t have 2,000 other people following them on social networking websites who were at their disposal when their marriage got even just a little hard. Now, when things seem weak, we can just log on and reach out to somebody new all to get off on this false sense of appreciation and understanding. We value our worth based on followers and likes and an inbox filled with messages from people with pretty words and no depth. Meanwhile, the person who adores you even when there is no filter just fades into the background behind the hundred new faces using cartoons to compliment you. I guess that’s why it doesn’t work out now. Because our grandparents were born in a time when you didn’t make friends over Facebook or meet somebody over Twitter or fall in love because of a few Instagram likes. A time when if something was broken, they would fix it instead of deleting an account and pretending it never existed.

There are so many fruits you haven’t tasted, so many beautiful songs you have not discovered, spices you’ve never heard of and intriguing conversations you haven’t had. There are oceans you have not felt and plants you’ve never seen. Books you’ve never read and souls your heart has not touched. This Earth is incredible.
