Stay Single Until You Find A ‘My Person’ Kind Of Love

Grey’s Anatomy IMDb

My person kind of love is someone who isn’t just your best friend but your soulmate. That person who would do anything for you, anything with you and just doesn’t let you get through the hard things in life alone.

We spend our whole lives trying to find someone who understands us. We’re trying to find that while trying to understand ourselves and figure out the tough questions life throws at us. And when you’re confused and lost and frustrated and uncertain of what could happen, the only thing you are sure of is this person standing next to you.

Their presence alone adds confidence to whatever it is you’re going through.

You look at them and you almost start believing in soulmates like this person was put on this earth to find you and be what you need.

It’s the love people write songs and movies about. The love you might have been skeptical of. The love you wondered would ever find you.

Because your past was bits and pieces of these love stories that left you a little empty taking parts of you with them as you tried to make sense of your brokenness.


Then this person came along running their fingers along your sharp edges, filling parts of you, you didn’t know was empty. You look at them and you feel whole for the first time. Like everything in the past happened for this reason and this person only.

The words I love you escape your mouth so carelessly but it’s not something you fear. It’s something makes you feel alive again.

My person kind of love is when you found your soulmate.

That person you know you’re going to spend the rest of your life with.

That person who makes every single the newest best day of your life because they are a part of it.

In them, you found what you didn’t even know you were missing.

Some people spend their whole lives looking for something that even resembles that connection. They settle because it’s the closest they think they’ll get. Secretly yearning for something a little more.

My person kind of love is that person that sets a fire alive within you never to let it dim.

And together you are the love story they’ve only ever dreamed of watching it become a reality every day they wake up next to you. 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
