New Romantics

"We are too busy dancing to get knocked off our feet.
Baby, we're the new romantics; the best people in life are free."
Taylor Swift

Don't be misled by my choice of song lyrics quotation, but where most of us are in life, we really are a new type of romantics. We all need and want love--that has not changed, but we have to give ourselves time to grow and to discover more about who we are before we let others in and see us. Like many, I still struggle with learning to accept myself that I become insecure about other people accepting me, but when you learn to not just accept and learn to love who you are as a person, flaws and all, you rid yourself of negativity that you don't need. You will feel free and powerful because you realize that the small things in life you used to worry about does not have any control over you and that is one of the many attractive qualities a person can have. As Taylor Swift said, "The best people in life are free." You can be the best version of yourself, you can have more to offer to others, and you can fully love others without ever needing anything in return because you already love yourself and know that is more than enough. So be the person who is "too busy dancing to get knocked off [their] feet" until you learn to accept and love yourself because you are unique and there's no one else who will be exactly like you, and the rest will eventually fall into place.
