Date someone who truly brings out the best in you. Who highlights your best attributes. And who brings out the kind of smile in you, that is 100% genuine.

Date the person who recognizes your weaknesses as strengths. Who watches you fail, and gives you a reassuring smile to get back up again. Date someone who believes that your goals will come true. Date someone who knows they will come true.

Date the person who brings out your rosy cheeks from laughing so hard, and who brings out your goosebumps when they tell you that they love you for the first time.

Date someone who looks at your imperfections as perfections and who never sees your downfalls in a negative light.

Date the person who brings out the wildness in you. Who dares you to be the best you that you can be, and who dares you to live outside of your comfort zone. Date someone who brings out the fire inside of you. Who lets you know that you should stand up for yourself when you need to, and who realizes that you are a strong, strong human.

Date someone who brings out your youth. No matter what age you are, date the person that makes you feel young again and who makes you forget your worries. Date someone who tells you that it’s ok to play and that life should be more fun anyways. Date the person who brings out your giddiness and enthusiasm. Date someone who lets you know how to truly live.

Date the person who reminds you that you are important.

And who makes you realize that you are truly special. Date someone who lifts you up when you need help, but who also recognizes that you can do it by yourself. Date the person who cherishes time with you and who feels grateful that you are in their life.

Date someone who teaches you that life is worth living. And shows you that life is so, so precious. Date someone who makes you realize that live is short, and that you might as well date someone who actually gives a damn. TC mark

You look back and you just feel stupid.
You can’t forgive yourself for falling
or believing all the lies.
You reread every text.
You relive every memory.
And it all starts making sense —
he never wanted love.
He only wanted attention.
He only wanted validation.

“It’s just wondrous how every time I go through some emotional trauma, your posts are so relatable and it gives me so much hope. I love the writing and the photos. It’s all a pleasure to read. I can’t thank you enough for it, really.” — DM from @ThoughtCatalog Instagram follower
