If you can love the wrong person that much, imagine how much you can love the right one.
It is going to hurt because it matters. Nothing that's worth it is ever easy. If you never tell the person how you feel you're gonna keep kicking yourself later on because you never took the chance to find out. And maybe just maybe it will turn into something absolutely amazing and maybe it won't but that's another reason to just keep moving on. Love like you've never been hurt.
