The most beautiful part to loving a guarded girl is this: When she lets you in, it's not because she needs you. She stopped meeting people a long time ago. It's because she wants you. And that - that is the purest love of all.
I grew up feeling this way. Still feel this way many days, but my depression cannot keep me down. I fight every. I wish for things to be easy, to be strong, and sometimes it's impossible. Sometimes I just can't.
