I Hope You Don't Just Happen To Anyone

I Hope You Don’t Just Happen To Anyone

Hey you, I hope you don’t just happen to anyone.

I hope you happen to someone who appreciates your magic, someone who wants someone exactly like you — who wants the way you think, the way you carry yourself, and the way you grow.

I hope you happen to someone who falls in love with how you see the world. Someone who admires your confidence and spirit, someone who doesn’t underestimate you and what you can truly do.

I hope you happen to someone who sees your bravery and acknowledges your strength and will power. Someone who doesn’t stumble at your wit, but builds it up and loves every single thing about it.

I hope you happen to someone who listens to what your stories, to your experiences, and will love to grow through the process with you. I hope they correct you in love and relentlessly empower you, encourage you to pursue all the things you said you will. Someone who holds your heart and honors it, who understands your value and respects what you value.

I hope you happen to someone who looks at you and sees a strong, abled, courageous being. Someone who would never wish to ever limit you, or destroy your drive. Someone who won’t bring you down just to up themselves. Someone who will allow you to shine your brightest and won’t feel intimidated by your light.

I hope you happen to someone who appreciates every single thing about you. From your smile to your soul. Someone who’s willing to go through the flames with you, and celebrates you on your worst day.

And I hope you see it when it happens. I hope you see it in the eyes of the people you meet, the strangers, the friends, the families, the special ones and most especially in yourself.

It doesn’t have to be romantic all the time, because you are so, so beautiful and you deserve to love all of yourself first. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
