Last night I was very upset, and that line right there instantly made me smile.
I’ve never been that discouraged, but still I chose to smile in front of the others. Surely they did not have a single clue that this woman was confused, disappointed, and sad while she was sporting a smile.
But I just can’t smile forever, can I?
And I can’t fake a smile in front of you, can I?
You know it when I’m not okay. You didn’t know what to say then, but you believed in me, encouraged me to love more, to understand more. You said loving someone isn’t pain-free. It doesn’t have to be reciprocated all the time.
Well, I believe that time of reciprocation will come. I’m through with one-sided affections, you see. If I love truly, I will be loved back truly as well. If I don’t give up, people will not give up on me as well.
Thank you for those encouraging words. They mean so much to me. 🙂
