We’re all on the journey to finding the right person. The person that will show us what pure, deep, genuine, once-in-a-lifetime love feels like.
Some find their meant-to-be person early in their life and others spend a lifetime waiting for them. And maybe, you fit into the second group. Maybe you’ve been hurt and had your heart broken many times. Maybe they made you believe that love is a difficult, painful thing. That true, pure love doesn’t exist. That you weren’t meant to be loved and appreciated. That love was not meant for you.
But, hey, listen to me – that’s not true.
You’re kind, smart, and beautiful. You’re worthy and deserving of all the love and warmth in the world. You are meant to love and be loved as well.
So, don’t despair. Stop worrying and thinking you’ll never find the person who will love and treat you the way you deserve. Stop thinking your heart will never be whole again.
Because one day you’ll find the person that will make your heart skip a beat when you look at them. They’ll make your eyes beam with happiness and your whole body tremble at their touch. They’ll make you melt into their arms.
One day you’ll meet someone with whom you’ll know that there’s no other place you’d rather be than in their arms. You’ll know that they’re your missing half, your perfect match.
One day you’ll meet someone who will show you that love doesn’t have to be painful and hard. They’ll show you that love can make you feel free. That love can give you a strength and make you feel so powerful that you’ll think you can conquer the whole world.
One day you’ll meet the person who will accept and cherish you the way you are. They’ll have seen you at your worst and they’ll know all your quirks, insecurities, and problems, but they’ll never criticize you for them or make you feel unimportant.
They’ll adore your loud laugh and think you’re cute when you get sulky. They won’t get annoyed when you insist on sleeping with the light on. They’ll even love the things you don’t like about yourself and remind you of your worth. They’ll never try to change you. Instead, they’ll love you unconditionally and embrace every part about you.
Because to this person, you’ll be perfect with all your imperfections. You’ll be perfect just the way you are.
One day you’ll find someone who will never make you wonder whether they show someone the same affection they show you. You’ll never have to worry about whether they’re honest with and faithful to you.
You’ll never have to ask yourself whether you appear too emotional or clingy to them when you shower them with affection and sweet words. You won’t have to pretend to be someone you’re not so as to make them love you.
Instead, you’ll always be yourself because they’ll love you for who you are and make you always feel comfortable in your own skin.
One day, you’ll find the person who will love you openly. Freely. Honestly. Deeply. Bravely. Fiercely.
They’ll be willing to undress their soul in front of you. They won’t be afraid to show how they feel about you and how much special you are to them. They won’t be ashamed to show their vulnerabilities and share their fears with you. They’ll never make you wonder if they love you as much as you love them.
One day, you’ll meet someone in whose eyes you’ll be able to see the reflection of your soul. Someone who will look into the deepest parts of your heart and heal your wounds. Someone whose greatest fear will be of losing you.
One day you’ll meet someone who will be stable, kind, compassionate, loving, and devoted, and to whom you’ll be more than good enough.
One day, you’ll find the person who will be willing to fully commit to you. They’ll be there when you need them. They’ll have busy days at work, feel tired, and spend time hanging out with their friends, but they’ll never allow themselves to make you feel ignored.
One day you’ll meet the person who will be your most devoted fan. Your greatest help. Your crying shoulder. Your best friend. Your strength. Your hope. Your everything.
One day you’ll find the person who will be eager to know how you spent your day. They’ll make you feel comfortable to share with them your greatest fears and insecurities. They’ll be willing to listen attentively to you when you’re sharing your problems with them. And one thing’s for sure – they’ll never leave you to deal with them on your own. Instead, they’ll give you advice and all the support and encouragement you need to solve them.
One day you’ll meet the person who won’t leave at the first sign of trouble. When the first problems and challenges start appearing in your relationship. Because they’ll be willing to fight with every fiber of their being to protect what they have-to protect the relationship, which to them is sacred, and you – their only love.
One day you’ll meet the person who will enjoy planning your future. The person who will enjoy imagining the two of you living together and loving each other even more deeply than you do now.
One day you’ll meet the person who will be everything you’ve ever wanted in your life. The person who will love you even more than their life. The person who will never let you go.
