There’s A Kind Of Love That You Can Only Find Within You


Nikolai Ulltang

There’s a kind of love that’s raw. The kind of love that sees everything you’ve ever buried and all the bruises under your skin and still admires you. Still believes in you. Still tells you you’re beautiful and you can change the world and you don’t have to be defined by your faults or your mistakes. The kind of love that sees the beauty in the dark circles under your eyes and sees art in the tired lines on your face from all the years that wore you out.

There’s a kind of love that’s real. The kind of love that goes to bed with all your demons and still wakes up with you in the morning. The kind of love that you don’t hide parts of yourself from. The kind of love that loves you when you’re quiet or sad or angry or weak. The kind of love that sticks around when you can’t get anything right or when your life is falling apart and helps you put it back together.

There’s a kind of love that’s unconditional. The kind of love that promises to love you on your bad days. The kind of love that promises to be there on the lonely nights to remind you of your strength and your wisdom and your worth. The kind of love that heals you after every heartbreak. The kind of love that shows you how you need to be loved so you don’t settle again for half of what you deserve. The kind of love that promises to keep loving you even if everyone you know walked away from you. The kind of love that forgives every flaw, every disappointment and every unkind word.

There’s a kind of love that’s pure. The kind of love that doesn’t lie to you. The kind of love that tells you you’re crazy and you’re not perfect but that won’t change my love for you. The kind of love that doesn’t sugarcoat the truth and tells you what you need to work on and what you need to change because it wants you to grow. It wants you to shine. The kind of love that’s kind to you. The kind of love that inspires you to do great things. The kind of love that’s sometimes too honest but it helps you fix what’s wrong. It helps you fix what’s broken. It helps you find light in the darkest places of your heart.

And that’s the kind of love that you can only find within. That’s the kind of love that no one else can give you. That’s the kind of love that you can only give yourself.

The kind of love that’s been attached to you ever since you were born. The kind of love that will never leave you. That’s the best kind of love. That’s the love of your life. That’s the one. The love you find within is the only kind of love that will last forever. TC mark

If needing you is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

“Sometimes things make more sense the second time around. People change, you change and the universe changes, if we keep ourselves confined to first chances only, we will truly miss out on some of the most beautiful things in life.” — Rania Naim
