you always hear the phrase, “if you love something, set it free” getting thrown around. while i believe in that to a point, i really don’t believe in it when it comes to love. i’m not talking about a stupid crush or silly middle school / early highschool relationship. i’m talking about when you love someone, love them more than you can even convey into words — “if you love someone, set them free”. to me, that just sounds like some bullshit excuse to give up when things give up just because things got hard. if you really, truly love someone, you don’t just let them go or give up. not without a hell of a fight. if you love someone, you keep fighting.
