Follow your heart, and let the pieces fall where they may. And remember, it is always better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all.
I'm a hopeless romantic, and believe in love stories and fairy-tales. I think love is the most important aspect of a person's life; whether it platonic or romantic, everyone deserves to love, and to be loved. Love is beautiful. It can be painful, cruel, and at times, so frustrating, but ultimately love is wonderful thing.
I believe that if you truly love a person, it's worth it all: the heartbreaks and the tears, the ups and the downs, and the best days and the worst. If the person, whether it be a he or a she, can manage to light up your face and brighten your day, on even your worst of days, he or she is special, and you should never let him/her go.
Fight for the one you love. Once it is known to you that he/she is the only one for you, or the one that you need, do not stop until the one you love is yours. Shout it from the rooftop. Show your love for him/her before it's too late. Without doing so, you'll live in regret, and wonder "what if?"
