people feel and show love in different ways.

please don’t let someone’s view of how you are “supposed” to express love invalidate yours (excluding abuse, obvs).

if strong feelings equal love for you, then that’s love. if giving someone a pebble is equivalent to saying i love you for you, then that’s love. if letting someone wear your favorite jacket is a big step towards love for you, then so be it.

no one feels the same thing.

its okay to feel feelings. its okay to say i love you a lot. it doesn’t mean you’re careless or throwing the word around.

don’t break yourself by trying to fit someone else’s criteria for “true” love.

your feelings are valid.

I needed that thankyou
