Being vulnerable with one’s heart is a state that most of us find impossible to achieve, especially since trust and love are some of the most precious things that we simply can’t give to others in an instant.

Hence, I’d like you to show me your weakest parts. The fragments of you that you’ve never had the courage to show the world.

Then, I will tell you all that’s good about them.
