Loving a broken-hearted girl will be hard. I don’t want to lie to you. Loving her, in fact, will be the hardest thing there is. It will require a lot of effort and many times you’ll wonder if it’s even worth it. The beautiful part about loving a broken-hearted girl is that only those who think it’s worth it get to see a butterfly born from the shell. Only those who stick around long enough get to see the beauty behind loving a broken girl.
Loving a broken girl will be filled with insecurities and doubts, as well, but not only from your side. She’ll have a hard time believing you’ll stay. She’ll have a hard time trusting you because her past made her insecure. Because her past made her doubt every single thing there is.
Even when you say you’ll stay, even when you promise you’ll be different, even though you do your best to hug and kiss out each and every doubt she has from her bones, there will always be a small dose of fear that you might turn out to be the same as the person that broke her.
Doubt will be haunting her and she’ll fight it, but there will be days when she won’t be able to be brave anymore, and even though you do make her happy, she’ll end up lying on her bedroom floor crying her soul out because of the fear she feels.

Sometimes, when you’re with her, she won’t be able to give you all she has. Sometimes, she’ll fail to be the best version of herself. Sometimes, she’ll forget to smile. Sometimes, she will want to be alone. And then you’ll know what’s she thinking about.
You’ll try to fix her. You’ll try to make her do things that she isn’t sure she wants, thinking you’re helping. You’ll try to make her be another version of herself and you’ll do your best to fix what broke her. Don’t. That won’t help. You’ll only push her away. You can’t fix her—only she can do that.
Instead of wasting your energy on fixing her, why don’t you try and love her? Use your words to make her believe you’re staying. Then turn your words into actions and actually show her you’re staying. Show her you love her. Give her more than words. Give her hope. Give her hope in tomorrow. Give her hope that one day she’ll be complete again. Make her believe that her scars will fade away. And when you do all this, don’t let her go.
Stay long enough to see the shell turning into a beautiful butterfly. Stay long enough to see the beauty behind loving a broken girl. Because every woman has tremendous beauty, but broken ones hide the beauty of its own.
