I have been reminded that every relationship has its problems, but what makes it perfect is when you wouldn’t want to be anywhere else, even when times are tough.
My best quality I would say is that I have a big heart. I have had a blind heart, falling into people who aren’t right for me.
Sometimes a naïve heart, thinking that love can save people from brokenness, or fix problems.
I have a big heart, but I’m no fool. I try to love without expectations, to give without demanding something in return, how to put others first.
I strive towards that daily. But when I am standing there, open-armed and vulnerable, and I receive nothing back—I know how to say goodbye.
I know I can love without conditions. I can be selfless and honest and open with the thoughts in my mind. I can fight for people, for relationships, for friendships…for love. But when I see that the other person is no longer fighting back, no longer defending me, no longer standing by my side—I have learned now how to let go. See, having a big heart doesn’t mean I allow myself to get stepped on.
Love is finding a middle ground. Love is learning. Love is balance and making concessions and trading off and learning to agree, or to agree-to-disagree.
The love you deserve will not be brimming with uncertainties. Love knows who it wants and why. Love will be sure, sure of you.
Love will not belittle you. Love will not judge you or your past. Instead love will accept you, despite of your cracks. Love will recognize your issues and will listen to your anxieties and every single thing that goes on in your head – all your sentiments, worries and fears – and love will be eager to hear every single one of them. Love will never make you question if you’ll ever be good enough.
The love you deserve will prioritize you. Love will not be selfish.
The love you deserve will respect you one hundred percent.
All your ideas, beliefs, attributes, plans and aspirations. Love will always see the best in you. Love will welcome you with open arms. Love will not discourage you, your dreams or wishful thinking. Love will support you all out in whatever you yearn to do, love will motivate you and will perpetually whisper in your ear that you can be the person you’ve always longed to be.
The love you deserve will be striking in its simplicity and it will find you. It will.
