Things people say that show that they care:

Most times, people say little things everyday that show you how much you mean to them, but are you listening?

Here are a few key phrases:

“Drive safely.”

“Be careful.”

“Call/text me later.”

“Do you want to hang out/come over?”

“Sleep well./How did you sleep?.”

“How are you?” 

“If you need help, let me know.”

Has anyone used these phrases around you lately? Probably, yes. So, just know that the person saying these things cares. Whether you know them well, or hardly at all. They care. Otherwise, they would not have said anything. Sometimes, maybe they’re just making conversation, or being nice, but more often than not it is more genuine than that.

There have been way too many times where I myself have fallen short of noticing these moments. I have felt entirely alone and isolated, thinking no one cared about me. But then, I started paying attention to the things people said to me. It reminded me that people do care and I should not take that for granted.

If you ever feel alone, I hope this reminds you too.

Because people ask me for relationship advice.

People ruin their own relationships for no real reason at all.
They put too much pressure on themselves and their partner, they over think every little detail, and they convince themselves it will never work.
Then hearts get broken and people spend a lot of time being alone and sad.

Relationships are not that complicated. A relationship should be nothing more than supporting and valuing the person you love. A relationship should be staying up late talking and laughing with the person who makes you feel like no one else. A relationship should be letting yourself trust your best friend enough to let yourself fall in love.

Support, love, commitment.
Laughing, smiling, comforting.

What’s so hard about those simple things?

Being afraid to let someone in, being afraid of getting hurt, being afraid that it won’t work out?

The easy solution: stop being afraid and let love conquer all.

When you find the one you’re supposed to be with, you’ll know it. You’ll know what love is, so don’t be afraid.
Never let that love go.

(End rant.)

PS: There’s no excuses on this. It’s not too late. It’s not impossible. It’s not “never going to happen.”

Never give up on love. If it’s meant to be it will be, just never stop fighting for what you love.

If you want my attention:

Send me long messages in the middle of the night.

Text me good morning before I’m even awake.

Call me unexpectedly.

Show up at my door unannounced.

Invite me somewhere spur of the moment.

Compliment me, and don’t let me brush it off.

Bring up little details I’ve told you.

Mention something I’ve posted somewhere online.

Talk to me first.

Be punctual and persistent

Don’t let me feel like less than I am.

Make me laugh.

Make me smile.
