Someday I’ll Find Someone Who’s Nothing Like You

I know that we weren’t meant to be.

We loved each other but it didn’t work.

We tried and tried to make it work.

But it wasn’t enough.

You weren’t enough.

And I wasn’t enough for you to change.

But see, I know things are going to get better.

I believe every single person, every single friend who told me that someone else is out there for me.

And I wholeheartedly believe them.

I know that someday I will find someone who can appreciate me the way I deserve to be treated.

Because I don’t think you can honestly say you treated me the best.

Maybe I didn’t treat you the best either.

But this I know for sure, that someday I will meet someone who is nothing like you.

I will meet someone who makes me happy from the furthest depth of my inner soul.

I will meet someone who understands that when I am quiet I just need a moment to breathe. Someone who understands that sometimes I need space.

Someone who understands that sometimes I need my solitude in order to recharge.

I need someone who is also okay being alone sometimes.

Someone who is okay when I need my space for a few moments to understand who I truly am.

Someone who can handle being content with not having my attention every minute, of every hour, of every day that we are together.

Someone who understands I need to breathe.

Someone who will let me breathe.

I know someday I will find someone who is content with themselves enough to laugh at themselves when things go wrong.

Someone who understands that life is meant to be joyful and silly.

Because when life gets tough and things get messy if you can’t make light of a situation then how do you ever expect to be truly content in life?

Someday I know I will find someone like that.

Someone who is nothing like you.

I have faith that my love story doesn’t end with you and me.

I have faith that my story can begin again with someone new.

I am grateful for what I learned from our relationship

but I know,

I know that someday I will indeed find someone who is totally and completely nothing like you.

But you see,

I would always take what we had over and over again,

Because it will lead me to him,

Someone who is totally and completely nothing like you. TC mark
