“You are one of the wild ones, and no matter how you tried to hide that fact, you can’t be anything other than what you are—and that’s okay. You are just as you are supposed to be, magnificently wild in all of your chaotic beauty.
I know you’ve had your heart broken and I know that you don’t understand why it always seems to never work out, but I’ve finally figured it out:
You don’t need a man, you need a goddamn warrior.’”

This was sent to me from a friend yesterday, and it could not have been more timely…and true.
When someone you truly loved, who you thought understood you and loved you for everything you are- for your fire, for you wildness, for you craziness and chaotic beauty- when this person takes it all back, when this person takes all the beautiful qualities that he claimed were the exact reasons he fell in love with you and morphs them into all of the things that are terribly wrong with you, you start to question all of those beautiful things you believed that you were…all of those things that you are.
The truth is, you scared him. You scared the shit out of him, just as you have so many before.
Why do you think this is? Is it because there is something wrong with you? It is because you are damaged? Is it because you are in fact crazy? Is it because you are too much or not enough?
It is none of those things, quite the opposite. You scare the shit of them because they realize that they can never match your fire- your wildness, your fierceness, your craziness, your chaotic beauty. They tried. And they failed.
No one wants to admit defeat. So, they blame it on you. They convince you that it was you who failed. They claim that you proved yourself to be unlovable, undeserving of their love. And you believe them.
What a tragedy. What a waste of your free-spirit, of the conviction so very few of us have to refuse to conform or settle for a life that does not fit us. It is so easy to convince ourselves that this is what we should do, that ‘normalcy’ can only be the white picket fence.
You are not normal, nor do you want to be. You are not someone who needs to rescued or fixed. And you most definitely do not need to be tamed.
“You need a goddamn warrior.”
Please know, they are out there, just as wild, just as fierce, just as passionate with just as much fire. And you will not spend the rest of your life searching for them.
Summon him. He will seek you out, and he will not stop until he finds you.
Don’t you dare settle. Instead, try your best to be patient and thank the universe every day that you did not mistake the one who tried to tame you- or worse, who tried to break you- that you did not mistake him for your warrior.
Your faithful gypsy,
