Sometimes it’s easy to settle and forget the kind of love that you deserve.
So this is a reminder of what that kind of love looks like: what you are worth.
The love you deserve will not send you mixed signals.
Love will not ignite false hopes or dreams of a future, instead, love will plant truthful hope and will commit to it. Love will be clear and it won’t leave you wondering in confusion as to what you did wrong for them to just walk out of your life without any warning or sign.
The love you deserve will not be hurtful at all.
Love will not leave you with scars or trauma. Love will not call you names. Love will not leave you crying yourself to sleep, feeling heartbroken. Love will not walk away from you. It will not get tempted.
The love you deserve will not be brimming with uncertainties. Love knows who it wants and why. Love will be sure, sure of you. Only you.
The love you deserve will not make you feel bad about yourself.
Love will not judge you or your past. Instead, love will accept you, despite your cracks, your insecurities.
Love will recognize your issues and will listen to your anxieties and everything that goes on in your head – all your sentiments, worries and fears – and love will be eager to hear every single one of them, no matter how unfomfortable it makes them feel. Love will never make you question if you’ll ever be good enough.
The love you deserve will be with someone who doesn’t agree with you all the time but when you argue, it feels as if you’re pushing each other to be your best selves. Someone who wants to sit down and talk with you until dusk turns to dawn about new beginnings, desires, the unknown, the indescribable feeling of ecstasy when you travel countries to watch the sunsets. Someone who knows that the touch of warm skin sometimes says more than a thousand conversations could.
The love you deserve will be with someone just as independent and driven as you are, if not more.
Someone who will inspire you. Someone who will trust you enough to give you space to grow. Someone who pushes you to travel down a path of understanding, to be unashamed and to fill yourself with courage.
That is the love you deserve….
