Please no longer apologize for your soft heart
Being a nice person is not something you should ever be sorry for.
It’s time to finally no longer apologize for your soft heart.
There is no need to apologize for your feelings and for feeling so deeply. Or that you continue to thrive no matter how many times you have been wronged and broken.
There is no need to apologize for the effortless way your heart sees the best in people. They can call you what they want or make any comments they want.
But know that these people are negative and only wish they could express themselves verbally and physically as you can. They are unable to do the beautiful things you do.
Stop apologizing for your way of loving and showing love.
If you love pet names or document the adorable things your partner does, stick with it. These simple acts of kindness and joy do no harm, so nobody should care about how you show your affection for others.
Do not apologize for whether you love too much or not, are too romantic or emotional, or have your heart on your tongue and not on your back where no one sees, because if you don’t, it will blindly hit you if it is broken without you seeing it coming.
Stop apologizing for the way you fix your heart or heal in times of heartache.
Never let people tell you how to heal if they are the ones who hurt you. Nobody else knows what you’re going through.
Protect yourself so that you feel as good as possible and are picky about who you let in your life. And don’t feel guilty about closing doors to people for the sake of your mental health and your own protection.
Stop apologizing for putting yourself first, despite the constant guilt you may feel. It is normal to feel like this when you always sacrifice yourself for others and finally take a step back to prioritize yourself.
But you also have to keep growing. So you can’t hide in a tiny flowerpot forever. Grow into a beanstalk that outshines everyone with its size, which comes entirely from your kind heart and soul.
Stop listening to people telling you that it’s “too much” or that your sensitivity is unrealistic or troublesome.
It is even far from it – it is beautiful.
You shouldn’t feel the need to hold back yourself or slow down when you live uncompromisingly and only for yourself.
No longer suppress how you feel – let it out and let it be loud. Who cares what people think or say? Only you know how liberating and wonderful it is to be open. And only you know the positive impact it has on your common sense.
You can go or exclude people from your life whenever you want and think it’s right, even if it breaks you.
Sometimes it can be painful because it really means something to you. So keep in mind that that’s perfectly fine. Sometimes you just have to decide for yourself.
And most of all: no longer apologize for your standards and limits.
You don’t need to feel bad about not wanting to settle down. You don’t need to feel bad about refusing to play games or being a pawn in other people’s games.
And you certainly don’t need to apologize for doing this with others, because if they can’t handle it, they shouldn’t be in your life.
Free your heart from the cage that other people lock it in. And no longer apologize for who you are.
