Can we first appreciate my beautiful Paramore-inspired pun in the title?
There’s also truth to it. I feel like I’m going to end up a lonely cat lady. I even told my mom she’s having grandcats.
Wanna know why? (Of course you do.)
Because I refuse to settle.
And so should you.
Guard your heart. It’s cliché and biblical, but it’s wonderful.
Now I don’t mean that you should wait around for Ryan Gosling to drive to your small NC town and propose to you. (The good Lord knows I’ve been waiting on that.)
I just mean be patient. Don’t force yourself to love someone because you’re afraid of being alone. Spoiler: I wouldn’t call that real love anyway, it probably won’t work out.
Stop searching. Be happy alone and in your own skin before you become too dependent on someone else.
And to quote Perks, “we accept the love we think we deserve.”
And you deserve the best.
