Do not give all of yourself away. Not even to the person whom you love the most, or the person whom you think maybe you might love the most even though part of you doesn't want to admit that you're not entirely sure; not to the person who says that they love you the most, not even if they think they are telling the truth, not even if you believe them. Save yourself.
Save part of yourself. Not to hoard away in a cardboard box in the back of the darkened wardrobe. but to nurture, so that you can grow bigger, and share still more of yourself, because you are beautiful. and because you know this you will save part of yourself, and you will nurture it. you will stroke it and call it love-names and clothe it in sunshine and feed it rubies and light.
