Wait For The Person Who Will Love You At Your Worst

God & Man

Wait for the person who will love you through every bad mood.

The person who can change whatever type of day you are having.

Wait for the person who won’t judge you for crying.

But instead, wipe your tears and make you smile again.

Wait for the person who only makes you cry because you’re laughing so hard.

The one who watches you so closely they can tell when something is off.

Wait for the person who can see you hit rock bottom and doesn’t leave you there.

The one who picks you up when you fall or just sits there until you’re ready to try again.

Wait for someone who is the strength one days you are weak.

The faith on days you’re hopeless.

The belief on days you doubt others or doubt yourself.

The love when you fear it.

The patience when you want to rush.

The kindest part of your day when no one else was.

Wait for the person who brings out the best in you.

Pushing you to achieve more.

Wait for the person who listens when you tell them the worst thing that’s ever happened.

The one who isn’t afraid that you have scars.

The one who appreciates who you became because of it.

Wait for the person who helps you to become your best.

But doesn’t fear you at your worst.

Wait for the person who loves when you’re drunk and you’re the version of yourself neither of you knows.

And instead of judging you for it, they take care of you. Help you. Forgive you.

They like you even when you don’t like yourself.

Wait for the person who makes you grateful it didn’t work out with the person you thought was the love of your life.

The one who teaches you about healing and forgiveness.

Because they’d rather fight with you than ever let you walk away.

Wait for the person who teaches you, you can trust someone other than yourself.

Wait for the person who not only believes in your dreams but wants to help be a part of the success story.

The one who is always in your corner and has your back.

Wait for the person who wants to learn with you.

The one who wants to learn from you.

The one who helps you to become better.

Wait for the person you’re really proud to introduce to your parents and your friends.

The one who doesn’t make you afraid of milestones that you look forward to wanting to achieve them.

Wait for the person who will love you through your insecurities to a point where you look in the mirror and they aren’t the first things you see anymore.

The one who pulls you in close even when you push them away.

Because they know you’re worth it.

Wait for the person who doesn’t walk away when you might be confused or hurting but helps you through figuring it out.

Whatever that it is.

Wait for the person who is going to love you the best way they know how.

The person who will love you harder than they’ve ever loved anyone else.

Wait for the person who sees you at your worst and chooses to stay. TC mark

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
