How to tell if somebody is genuinely interested in you: If you removed all of your effort from the equation would any communication remain between you? If not, there is nothing there and you deserve better.
Just for your information. If you're important. People will make time for you if you matter to them. Maybe not at the moment you want it, but they will make that effort. If they don't make that effort anymore, you know where you stand.
I believe in the kind of love that doesn't demand me to prove my worth and sit in anxiety. I crave a natural connection, where my soul is able to recognize a feeling of home in another. Something free-flowing, something simple. Something that allows me to be me without question.
