I know your heart has been broken many times. I know you’ve been through hell and back.
I know you’ve suffered.
I know you’ve sacrificed yourself to prove to some people how much they mean to you. And I also know that it was all in vain.
Because you loved and trusted men that appreciated neither you nor everything you were doing for them. Men who didn’t care about all the sacrifices you made for the relationship. Men who took you for granted. Men who nonchalantly shattered your heart and left you to pick up the pieces by yourself.
You loved men who instead of seeing your worth only saw the things they didn’t like about you. They saw your weaknesses, insecurities, and fears. They saw your mistakes and failures. They saw your flaws and turned them against you.
They made you feel like you weren’t good enough for them.
For them, you were never smart enough, beautiful enough, attractive enough, interesting enough. Instead, you were naïve, dumb, boring, and full of imperfections.
They diminished your confidence to boost their own ego. They criticized you and made you feel weak and useless to make themselves feel smarter and important.
You gave them your all and they stomped on your heart and shattered your hopes.
You loved and trusted men who tried to make themselves feel and look like they were “machos” by playing with your feelings and manipulating you.
You loved men who made you lose trust in everyone surrounding you.
You gave your heart and soul to men who made you think that love is hard and painful. That it does not exist.
Now, you think that every man out there is planning to fool you and hurt you. You think all men are the same.
But, you’re wrong.
Because the man who will see your worth will come along.
There will come a man who will appreciate every single thing about you and everything you do for him. A man who will see the purity of your soul and your outward and inner beauty the moment he lays his eyes on you.
There will come a man who will accept and cherish you just the way you are. He’ll know all your annoying habits, whims, and insecurities, and he’ll have seen you at your worst, but he won’t criticize you or make you feel bad about it.
He’ll embrace your imperfections because he knows that they’re a part of the person that occupies the most special place in his heart.
There will come a man who will respect you as a person and your feelings, opinions, needs, and wishes as well. He’ll respect you and act maturely and responsibly when you disagree with him and when your opinions are totally opposed to his.
There will come a man who will be your best friend. Your greatest help. Your cheerleader. Your crying shoulder. Your strength. Your companion. Your partner in crime. The most amazing lover.
There will come a man who will know how to treat you – with kindness, compassion, dignity, and lots of affection. A man who will make you feel like you’re the happiest and most loved and important person in the world.
There will come a man who will stick with you through thick and thin. He’ll never leave you to deal with your worries, problems, and pains on your own. He’ll never allow himself to be the reason for your sadness or pain.
There will come a man who will always have your back and who won’t let anyone criticize you or make you feel sad in his presence.
He won’t be hesitant or afraid to sacrifice his own happiness and needs for you because he knows you’re worth every effort. Every struggle. Every pain.
There will come a man who won’t be afraid to walk through fire to defend you from any evil and make you feel safe and protected.
There will come a man who won’t hesitate to go the extra mile to make you happy.
There will come a man who will treat you as his equal and who will never try to make you feel weak and unimportant.
There will come a man who will know that you are more than good enough. When he looks at you, you’ll know he truly loves you. You’ll never have to question his feelings for you or wonder where you stand with him.
There will come a man who will be hopelessly and deeply in love with you. A man who will be sure about you and choose you every day. A man who will know he always needs you by his side and that you’re the best thing that could have ever happened to him.
There will come a man who won’t have to lose you to realize your worth.
