I Hope You Find Someone Who Actually Deserves You

Yoann Boyer

I hope you find someone who makes you realize why it didn’t work out with your ex.

Someone who understands you’ve had a lot of pain in your life but doesn’t hold it against you. Instead, they try and understand wanting to learn about even the hard parts of your life.

Someone who teaches you, you didn’t deserve some of the things that happened to you.

I hope you find someone who takes the time to learn you and break down every wall.

I hope you find someone who is patient. Someone who doesn’t give up on you or ever stop trying. Someone who stands still when you walk away because they know what it’s like to be scared too.

I hope you find someone who wants to make you happy. Make your life easier. Someone who teaches you love and pain isn’t something that coexists.

I hope they are someone who answers your texts quickly and never makes you wonder how they feel or makes you question yourself.

I hope you find someone who goes out of their way for you just to make you happy.

Someone who challenges you and pushes you and sees potential in you, you don’t see in yourself. I hope they are someone who believes in you.

I hope you find someone who grabs your hand eagerly introducing you to their friends and family. Even though everyone already knows about you.

Someone who smiles at you across the room like you two are the only ones there.

I hope you find someone who really makes you believe you are the best thing that’s happened to them lately.

I hope they are someone who learns every flaw and every vice and still thinks you are perfect in their eyes.

I hope you find someone you have funny stories with and inside jokes. You look at each other smirking because you two know something no one else does.

I hope you find someone who makes you laugh so hard you forgot what pain even felt like.

Someone you stand next to as you run into an ex and the past suddenly doesn’t hurt anymore.

I hope you find someone who loves you with all of their heart because that’s what you deserve.

I hope you find someone you wake up next to at 2AM when you used to only settle for texts.

The person who changes the songs you listen to because the corny ones about love start to make a little more sense.

I hope it’s a relationship that sets this standard you wondered could even exist. Someone who makes you believe in love and good relationships again.

I hope you find someone who actually deserves you because when you find them you’re never going to look at yourself the same way and you’ll never settle after that. 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
