One day you will meet the person of your dreams without looking.
It will likely be a hit and miss encounter in a place you hardly go, a twist of fate that will lead you to the encounter that will change your life forever. No matter how you meet this person, this experience will transform you and likely mark you for life.
You won’t expect much at first because you’re used to things that don’t work for you. You are used to fleeting relationships that easily slip through your fingers.
You make minimal efforts to protect yourself from people. You are tired of being heartbroken because of your past experiences. You are afraid it will lead you to eventual heartbreak that you vowed to avoid at all costs.
But you will realize, that the right person will give you all the right feelings.
She will go out of her way to put you first and will support you in everything you do. It will make your heart beat faster and give you a big smile for all the right reasons.
She will be there to love who you are and be proud to be with you. She will love you deeply in the present and will want to make it happen forever.
You will believe every word this person says because they won’t give you any reason to doubt them.
There won’t be a hint of confusion or uncertainty in your mind. You will feel both nervousness and excitement for what the future holds.
Thinking about that person will give you a warm feeling that will light up a smile on your face. You will feel serene and calm thinking of this person because their dedication to you will be unwavering and constant.
Never accept someone who isn’t standing up for you and trying to give you their best. Never silence the voice in your head when you feel that something is wrong but you can’t put your finger on it. Never diminish your worth and never think that you need love to feel complete.
If someone you hang out with is keeping you in the gray zone, have the courage to end this ambiguous arrangement or at least talk about it.
If you have to deal with recurring, less-than-ideal toxic behaviors, step away if possible. If you can’t imagine something long term with this person, listen to the voice inside of you telling you to leave. If you have to wonder if this is the right person, then they probably aren’t.
If you feel hopeless at the prospect of love, appreciate the important people in your life and accept that love isn’t just in a romantic partner.
If you’re starting to feel jaded about romantic relationships, maybe you should take a break and focus on yourself to begin with.
Because somewhere deep inside you know that love isn’t meant to be that difficult or scary.
It’s not meant to have more lows than highs, nor to be made up of more tears than smiles, and more negativity than positivity. You are not supposed to be content with not finding the one you are looking for.
