Anxious — Accept that pain is part of life, and it’s especially part of a life well-lived. You’re going to have to risk being hurt if you want a chance at really being loved.
Finding the one
it’s important to remember, it’s important to stop focusing on what a person lacks, what they could do better in, where they could make more effort. It’s important to stop chasing after this unrealistic prince charming, to stop placing expectations on a person because no one will ever measure up to an idea someone else has created of them.
We can’t let fear of losing someone, or getting hurt, or being vulnerable stop us from trying to make love work.
You deserve a love that’s as extraordinary as your personality, and as profound as the suffering you have been through. Love should never be wasted on mediocrity. It should never be average.
There are many coincidences in life, but few coincidences in love. You might have met your mate by chance, but there is a reason you chose him/her among others, and there are other reasons yet that determined the trajectory of your relationship.
If one day I do meet my future husband it will be amazing because it is on God’s timing and not my own.
You don’t want to change them, but are happy to continue to fall in love with whoever they evolve into over time.
You don’t know what their absence feels like; they’re there beside you, even when they’re not. They’ve always been there, from the very first moment your eyes locked.
You became the place where I felt the safest, the most like myself. And I got lost in the security that only a well-built home can provide.
When you find the one, you will always find yourself smiling at the middle of the night as you go to bed, forcing you to open your phone once again and re-read all the conversations that led the butterflies flutter inside your stomach.
