Though you may jokingly describe me as "too nice," what you may not know is, I have a big heart and the ability to take your worst day and make it your best.
I have a lot of love for anyone who wants it, and I like to bring out the best in people. I'll do my best never to hurt you because I know that feeling all too well.
I will always do my best to keep you happy, even at the expense of my own happiness, and I will never regret knowing you, nor will I ever do anything to jeopardize my relationship with you.
People tell me I'm “too nice,” but the truth is, I don't want anyone to feel the way I do a lot of the time: flawed, unworthy and not good enough.
The truth is, I'm doing my very best.
I hurt easier than most people, which means I hurt more than most people. I'm sensitive about pretty much anything and everything.
It takes me a long time to move on from something negative someone says to me or about me. And when people do terrible things to me, it hurts me more than you imagine.
Very rarely do I try to get even, though. Your unkind words could ruin my day, and you would never know it because I won't say one back.
I'm sensitive about pretty much anything and everything.
I will continuously overthink everything you say and do, as I try to figure out what it means and where it came from.
But I won't pick fights with you. People fight and argue, sure, but I don't initiate fights too often. Even if you wrong me, I feel more pain from it than anger.
And even if something isn't my fault, at the end of the day, I will apologize until you forgive me. For me, there's nothing worse than knowing someone is mad at me, regardless of what their reason is. I will try to settle all of our problems by showing you kindness and grace. It may sound strange now, but I promise it works every time.
I tend to see the world as generally a good place. Even in the midst of evil and suffering, I can usually find a positive, uplifting aspect of the situation, and the way I see the world will change the way you see it.
I always see the good in other people (or I try to anyway). When I first meet someone, my biggest goal is to find their best quality and make sure they know what it is. I help them see their purpose and their accomplishments, and every day I will make sure they know how special and loved they are.
Because, to me, that's my job.
Though I see the best in others, I don't always see it in myself.
Though I see the best in others, I don't always see it in myself. I have many insecurities, and sometimes, I need someone else to lift me back up. It doesn't always happen, but I've learned to deal with that.
That doesn't change the way I see others, though. Even if you can't help me all the time in the way that I need you to, I will always be there for you. At the end of the day, I will give you my heart and hope you take full care of it.
Being with the girl who is “too nice” has its advantages and disadvantages. I'll show you the world, and I'll let you be mine.
I will trust you with my heart and hopefully change your life in a good way. I thrive on my sensitivity, and I use my insecurities to my advantage. And I hope you also protect my heart and make me feel loved and secure.
