I am trusting you to stay. I am trusting you not to abandon me when things get hard. I am trusting you to work through our problems instead of letting them fester until you cannot take it anymore. I am trusting you to remain inside my world for a lifetime.

I am trusting you to be faithful. I am trusting you not to sleep with someone else behind my back. I am trusting you not to text other girls without my knowledge while we’re tucked in bed together. I am trusting you to keep your promise that I am the perfect one for you, the only one for you.

I am trusting you to tell me when something is wrong instead of bottling your feelings up inside and slowly growing to resent me. I am trusting you to give me the painful truth instead of a pretty lie. I am trusting you to keep the lines of communication open. I am trusting you to never stop being honest with me.

I am trusting you to keep your promises. I am trusting you to follow through when you swear you are going to do something. I am trusting you to keep your word, to match my expectations.

I am trusting you to keep our secrets between us. I am trusting you not to judge me when I come to you with my fears. I am trusting you not to throw my past in my face during arguments when you want to make a point. I am trusting you to act respectful toward me, no matter the situation, no matter what mood you’re in.

I am trusting you to place me above all else. I am trusting you to consider me a first priority. I am trusting you to protect me. I am trusting you to cherish me. I am trusting you to take care of me as best as you can as long as I return the favor.

I am trusting you with my entire body. I am trusting you to treat me with gentle hands. I am trusting you not to pressure me into situations I am uncomfortable with. I am trusting you to let me move at my own pace. I am trusting you on the inside and out.

I am trusting you to treat me right. I am trusting that you want what is best for me. I am trusting that you mean it when you tell me you love me. I am trusting that you would never do me wrong.

I am trusting you to act as my person, as my teammate, as my partner in crime until death do us part. I am trusting you to continue putting in effort, even long after the honeymoon stage has faded. I am trusting you to always love me like you do right in this moment.

I am trusting you with my heart. I am trusting you, even though my past has taught me to never trust anyone. I am trusting you, so please, do not let me down. TC mark
