Because sometimes your parent is an alcoholic, and it can make your love feel very conditional. Or because sometimes you love a friend the wrong way. Or because sometimes a friend loves you the wrong way. Or because sometimes you’re so unsure of loving yourself that you question how you could possibly genuinely love anyone else. A thousand reasons.
Telling someone you love them isn’t always that simple.
‘There are all kinds of love in this world, but never the same love twice.’
— F. Scott Fitzgerald
