I Hope This Is The Year, You Find A Love That Ruins You

“Yes, losing your heart`s desire is tragic. But gaining your heart’s desire? That`s all you can hope for. This year I wished for love… to immerse myself in someone else and to wake a heart long afraid to feel. My wish was granted. And if having that is tragic, then give me that tragedy. Because I wouldn`t give it back for the world.” – One Tree Hill

I hope you find a love that ruins you in the best way.

The type of love that heals your broken pieces.

The type of love that teaches you to like everything the past year told you to hate about yourself.

I hope you find a love that challenges you.

Challenges you to be your best self while pushing you to be someone you never thought you could be.

I hope this is the year you find a love that shows a before and after in you because you met them.

The type of love that makes you see the world a little different through someone else’s eyes.

I hope you find a love that takes you places to see things that scare you.

I hope you find a love that educates you and helps you learn something.

A love that puts you out of your comfort zone a bit.

A person who makes you listen to different music and read certain books because there is something there you need.

I hope you fall so in love it ruins you, knowing someone like that exists in the world.

The type of person you realize you can’t live without.

I hope you fall so hard for each other that’s it.

I hope you find a love that teaches you not to be selfish, as you realize you’d do anything for that person.

I hope you find a love that ruins the way you sleep at night because if they aren’t next to you something is off.

I hope you find a love who redefines the meaning. And makes you forget everyone before.

I hope you find someone who takes your hand and doesn’t let go. The type of love that never makes you doubt things.

The type of person who makes every cliche a reality.

Someone who buys you flowers and asks you to dance because as in love as you are with them, they love you more.

I hope it’s a love people see just by the look in your eyes and the sound of your voice as you talk about them.

I hope you find someone who makes you realize why you were never whole. Someone who is your missing piece.

I hope you find a love that ruins plans you used to have because the only plan that matters now is one they are a part of.

A love that ruins every song you never listened to because until they came along, you never understood the words.

I hope you find someone who ruins all your favorite places as you take them to share it.

I hope you find someone who ruins what you thought was normal, as they teach you fighting doesn’t mean someone has to leave. And you work through it.

I hope this is the year you find a love that ruins you and the only thing that scares you more than being with them would be letting someone else do such a thing.

I hope this is the year you stop being afraid of love and let it consume you

But more than anything, I hope you get ruined in the best way by love because until you’ve gotten your entire life shook by one person, it’s only then you can say you’ve lived and truly loved. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
