When you confess your love, you're immediately susceptible to heartbreak.
When you're at your most vulnerable state, you're at your strongest moment.
When you have no one else to depend on but yourself, you realise that you have more strength than you thought you had.
When you can look back to all the heartbreaks you had before and still keep their friendships, that's when you mature as a person.
Would you rather hurt than feel nothing at all?
Maybe it's hard to sleep at night.
Maybe every waking moment is a struggle.
Maybe you just feel old and over it.
Just remember, when you're at your lowest point, there's only one way out, that is to go up.
