You deserve a love that is born out of kindness. And compassion. And warmth. And joy. True love is about understanding and compassion, and the desire to be better and do better for the human you love — and yourself. Do not mistake pain as a necessary component for love. Do not believe the lie that when someone hurts you in anger, it’s ok because they say that they love you. Do not tell yourself that you must settle for scraps disguised as love when you deserve a full course meal.

I write essays and poetry about life lessons, love, relationships, and self-awareness.
