Pure of Heart
Shared by Bridget Maria Rose
I have never walked on such a fragile line with anyone before. But I cannot forget the feeling or forget him…..
Maybe I’m in love with you when I have no reason to be at all, and maybe I fall for people too fast and care too much. Maybe I misread situations and misjudge people. Maybe I don’t always make the right choice. But I only have the best and purest of intentions. And I need someone to know that right now.
I feel I haven’t been able to catch a break lately.. but you can’t always use that as an excuse. We all make mistakes and take wrong turns every now and then. That’s life. None of us are perfect. We are flawed people, but it makes us all the more worth loving. ♥
Some of the nicest compliments I’ve ever received have not been related to appearance or style (although those are always much appreciated) but are compliments of my character. To be spoken of as being a girl who is “thoughtful, caring, generous, kind-hearted”… these traits are important to me and always have been, so it means a lot to me when someone has noticed them, as they are often overlooked in a person. Occasionally, we do things that are out of our character. We cannot always hold to our values – we slip up from time to time. I wish this wasn’t the case. It would be so much easier to be perfect all the time, make all the right choices, to not give into temptation, & to be unselfish in every way. But that isn’t human nature, and that’s okay.
I always try to see the best in people, past their flaws.. because that is where our heart lies, our real desires, and our true selves. Yes, the desires of our heart can sometimes overpower us. They have often got the best of me. They get the best of us all, from time to time. They’re peculiar little things- they’ll cause me to think too much, or not at all. They’ll lead to secrets, and end friendships. But maybe they also show us what has been true all along. They are the most honest parts of us – and although we may not want to, maybe we should listen to them.
After all is said and done, I’ve still got that same heart. It’s pure, genuine, and only wants to be consumed in a love that I fall asleep to dream about. Will you at least let me love you? Even if the love is never returned, I just want a chance. I think I deserve one. You hold the key to my heart, and though it may be a complicated thing to figure out… if you’re in my life and are written across even an inch of my heart.. whether that be for a week, for a season, or for a lifetime… I will do everything and anything to show you the best of me.
I can only hope that is enough. ♥
