“So please, if you are the kind of person who is honest with the people you love without thinking of how hard the consequences may be on your heart, please don’t change that about yourself. Don’t allow your heart to be hardened into playing games just like everyone else. Don’t let the world fool you into thinking that you’re doing it wrong. Keep being honest. Because you’re one of the few who is getting it right. Keep looking for a love who is just as honest back.”
