Dear Beautiful Soul,
You are NOT a terrible friend and your overabounding love for others does NOT go unnoticed. There are people all around you that see all that you do for others. Just because there is no “Thank You” or “Great Job” does not mean people are ignoring you. You are one of the most unselfish people around. There needs to be more people like YOU in this world. It is not humanly possible to love or care too much about someone or something. Our society has grown extremely self-centered, yet you have remained so far from that.
People with extremely huge hearts are battling their own journey that no one is even aware of. You are constantly smiling and checking on friends and family. Deep down, you secretly wish that a person would come up and say, “Hey! I know you are not ok, so let’s talk!” or “Here is your favorite Starbucks drink; tell me about your day.” This does NOT make you selfish. YOU are allowed to want people to check on you occasionally. The people with larger hearts are typically broken on the inside. You know what it’s like to feel alone and invisible. You have turned those emotions into something incredible. No one should ever feel the way you do which is why your heart is “three times the size of a normal person’s.”
So, here is my Thank You to YOU. Thank you for loving others more than you love yourself. Thank you for caring and not expecting a single thing in return. Thank you for going out of your way to help a friend or even a complete stranger. Thank you for being different than all the rest. Thank you for simply being YOU! Don’t ever change! Ever!
Please know you are loved more than you could possibly imagine. It takes a special kind of person to do what you do. You are not alone either. Your journey is important too!
