One Day You’ll Find Someone Who Loves You For You

  • 0

One day you’ll stop second guessing.

You won’t wonder whether you should call him, or if he’ll like the new blouse you bought. You won’t ask yourself if you’re being too much, or hesitate before texting him first. You’ll stop questioning you every move, and doubting how you should act.

Instead, you’ll simply be.
Because this man, he’ll love you for you.

One day you’ll find a man who understands you. He’ll love the way you bite your lip when you’re thinking, or always use an excessive amount of peanut butter on your toast. When you insist on turning a tiny light on at night, he’ll think it’s cute, not annoying. When you roll over and steal the covers, he’ll simply kiss you on the forehead and steal them back.

Everything you do, he’ll find simply endearing—no matter how silly, or frustrating, or funny, or downright strange—he’ll love all the little things about you, because they make you, you.

No, he won’t idolize you, or think you’re absolutely perfect. But he’ll see who you are and all the ways you act, and he won’t ask you to change. He’ll accept you, with all your baggage, your faults, and your habits, and he’ll proudly say, ‘Yes, she’s mine.’

One day you’ll find a man who appreciates your quirks. He won’t mind that you bite your nails or always turn your alarm off after the first ring. He’ll understand that you’re a morning person, but not a coffee drinker. He won’t roll his eyes when you choose sweet wine over beer, even at football games. And he’ll never tell you that you’re being too loud, too silly, or too much.

He won’t make you question your decisions, or make you wonder if you should act a different way. He won’t leave you guessing about his intentions, because he’ll make it clear he’s into you. And he’s not going anywhere.

One day you’ll meet a man, and it’ll all make sense.

You won’t feel compared to other women, or exes of his past. You’ll feel lighter and happy and loved, all because when he looks at you, you know he’s looking past your imperfections and into your heart. And you know he’s claimed it.

One day you’ll meet a man, and you won’t feel like you need to be any different than who you are. You’ll laugh easier, breathe deeper, feel free in ways that no other man has made you feel before. You won’t doubt your actions, or question whether or not to talk to him, to text him, to kiss him, to love him back.

This man will help you shine the brightest, will build you up as you build him up, will change your life and help you see that you are beautiful, strong, and treasured. Because sweet girl, you most definitely are.

One day you’ll meet a man, and he’ll love you for you.
So please hold out for him, because this is the love you deserve. TC mark

Poetry That Will Empower and Inspire You

Salt Water, the new poetry collection by Brianna Wiest, is a must-have book on your journey to healing. Grab a cup of tea and let these essential, purifying prose calm your mind and filter out the noise.

Salt Water is a slow deep breath, in and out. It sits in a new genre of poetry, somewhere between artistic self-expression and candid self-help. It is a meditation on acceptance, growth, and what it means to be human. Salt Water is the note you wrote to yourself years ago, which you find again when you most need it, that reminds you ‘it’s going to be okay.’”
—Lee Crutchley, Author of “How To Be Happy, Or At Least Less Sad”

Poetry Lovers! 💖

Love a soft person. The ones who are positive, even in the worst of circumstances. Someone whose strength is not in bravado, but in their quiet. Someone who is strong for others because that is what is needed in that moment. Someone who is the moon that soothes instead of the sun that burns. Someone who sees the very best in people even when you think they aren’t worth it. The kind of person who always wants to do the best for those they love.

“I bought this on a whim to read as I was resting for the night, and I do not regret it one bit! Everything about the poetry in this book is amazing, heart breaking, and soul searching. It will lift your spirits on your darkest days. I want to thank the author so much for writing this, as it’s something I will be rereading a lot! Always remember, everything about you is important. You matter.” —McKayla
