I Want The Kind Of Love That Makes Me A Better Person

I long for the love that is written about in novels with the pain, heart ache and happy ending. A love that is built on hardships and overcoming triumphs together. A love that is beautiful and real. A love that is passionate and honest, not a love that is easy and comfortable.

I don’t want perfect love, but I want a motivational love. A love that is founded on desire and hope, a love that makes me certain that together we can truly do anything. I don’t want love that is only great at the beginning, but continues to be great and growing until the end.

I want the kind of love that makes me want to be a better person.

A love that is filled with passion and erases some of the self-doubt I have in my mind. I want a love that inspires me to wake up before the suns up and go to the gym. I want a love that inspires me to eat healthy to better myself. I want a love that has me swimming in novels, reading all the best lines put together in a masterpiece. I want a love that makes me feel alive and peaceful, not drained and worthless. I want a love that inspires me to be kinder and more generous to the world around me just by looking at the person by my side.

I want someone who will make me feel more alive. Someone who will push me out of my comfort zone and make me aware of things I’ve never seen. I want someone who is like the other half of me, who we can bounce ideas off each other to reach the best possible outcome. I want someone who is always down for adventures and decides to actually make plans, instead of just saying he will get around to it when he has time.

I have big hopes and big dreams, but that is because I know that kind of love exists. I know that a love that inspires and gets better with time exists because I’ve seen it. I’ve been inspired by it and I want it.

I know it won’t come easy. I know I can’t just snap my fingers and have it there. Building relationships takes time and being in relationships takes work, but I’m willing to put my all in for a love that inspires me to be better.

The best love is a love that makes you want to be better, without changing who you are to make someone else happy.

Because true love makes you better, it makes you more alive. It makes you more of who you are, not less.

I’ll admit I’m a bit of a hopeless romantic, but it’s because I know what I want. I want someone who dreams as big as I do. Someone who never wants to live comfortably, but is willing to take risks because they believe that is the way life is supposed to be lived.

I want someone who wants to help me accomplish my goals because I will do that for them. I want someone to challenge me and push me. I want someone who makes me get lost in them. I want someone who makes me dream bigger, who completes the plans in my head, who doesn’t make me feel like I’m missing out on anything better and who generally inspires me to be a better person. And I honestly and completely believe in that type of love. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
