It’s Okay If Love Doesn’t Find Me

Hello Love.

I know you haven’t found me yet. But I just want to say that it’s alright.

You don’t have to find me anytime soon. I know it seems like I don’t want you right now, but honestly, I would be lying if I told you I never seek you in coffee shops, in crowded places or even in the silences of my mind.

But I know you would like this too.

We’re still young. We’re still itching for freedom and independence. We want to live.

It’s alright not to find me because I am still working on myself.

I still need to find who I am and what I am here for. I still need to do what I love and pursue them passionately. Only then when I have already accomplished so much can I begin to fall in love.

I don’t know when or where we’ll meet. I just know why.

We will meet because we are fated to. Even if I do not know what you look like, I know that I will like you. It might take a while, but I know I’ll do. How? Because I know that you will be familiar; your pulse will match the beatings in my heart.

So until we’re both ready for one another, I hope that you won’t give up too soon. I hope you will wait for me. So for now, don’t worry about me and go accomplish what you have to. Have fun. Find your desires. Seek greatness. Explore and discover the mysteries of life. And when you’re finished, when you’re ready to find love, come find me. Come find me and tell me all of those stories, all of your life stories.

By this time, I will be ready.

I will be ready to face love. I may not have worked everything out, but I will be able to say I deserve you. By this time, I will have realized my purpose, my reason. And I will have understood the reason for love, for us meeting.

So trust me sweetheart, it’s alright. Take your time. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
