romance-repulsed-aros:

To the aromantics that get jealous of couples’ romantic love, the ones that feel like they’ll never be as happy as them. To all of you that are sure you’re doomed to be lonely and sad for your whole life.

It’s okay to feel these things. You’re allowed to be upset. Society has ingrained so many wrong things into us all and it’s hard to get rid of them. We’ll probably spend our lives unlearning them. But that’s alright. You can take it slow, one day at a time.

Let yourself vent. Let yourself get all the negativity out. Nobody should blame you for how you feel. Remember that it’s possible to be happy without romantic love. There are so many other things to life that are worth just as much, that are just as amazing to experience. You are not doomed to isolation and despair. You are not like this because you deserve it. You are not worthless. You are not boring or inhuman or bad.

Being aromantic is good. It’s beautiful. It’s wonderful. All you can do is embrace this part of who you are, so you might as well give it a shot.
