Why It Only Ever Worked Out With You

At a young age, I prepared myself to be perfectly alone. I already accepted the fact that there’s no such thing as forever. Especially when it comes to relationships.

Pretty pessimistic, right? But that’s how my mind worked until I met you. You, the most unpredictable part of my life. The person who somehow changed the way I see things.

I just want you to know that I am grateful it was you.

It was you who brought me to a whole new world. A world where my doubts and fears seemed so small, as if they were never there.

It was you who made me realized that taking risks does make a person stronger and fiercer, because I broke out from my own bubble.

It was you who made me feel beautifully happy, the kind of happiness I never thought I’d be able to experience again.

It was you who made me feel human again, who taught me that it’s alright to show my vulnerability to someone who really cares, that my imperfections make me more beautiful as a person.

It was you who made me realize that I don’t want to be alone. I want to travel the world someday with someone who makes every road trip extra special.

It was you who made me realize that every adventure I take, there’s someone who is more than willing to take that adventure with me.

It was you who made me feel those butterflies in my stomach. The way you looked at me and that smile across your face makes me want to hug you right away every time I see you.

It was you who made me feel loved and appreciated in every way you do.

It was you, my answered prayer. The one God allowed in my life. The reason why it never worked out with anybody else.

The person whom I want to spend the rest of my life with. TC mark
