Fall For Someone Who Loves You Exactly Like This

Love someone who adores every part of your body, no matter how much weight you gain or lose, no matter how many creases grace your face, or grey strands pepper your hair.

Love someone who honours you when you’re not around, and always holds you close in their heart. Someone who thinks of you in between all of their moments.

Love someone who isn’t scared to commit to you wholly, and doesn’t treat you like one of an endless number of options. Someone who doesn’t leave you wondering, hoping or praying.

Love someone who isn’t afraid of labels; someone who embraces growing, changing, and falling in love with you through a whole rainbow of shades.

Love someone who is completely present and content in your company, never wondering if the grass is greener with somebody else.

Love someone who tucks you in under a cosy blanket when you fall asleep on the sofa, and gently kisses your forehead, wishing you the sweetest of dreams.

Love someone who brings you breakfast in bed, and tea in your favourite mug just the way you like it, when it’s not a special occasion but just an ordinary Tuesday morning.

Love someone who says ‘we’, not ‘I’, because you’re a team.

Love someone who doesn’t buy you fancy gifts, but chooses something smaller that speaks straight to your heart.

Love someone who offers you forever – if that’s what you crave – and shows you every day that they’re not planning on disappearing.

Love someone who always reaches for your hand when you’re walking down the street, just so they can be that little bit closer to you. Someone who sweetly squeezes it just to let you know they appreciate you being present in that moment.

Love someone who’s a good human. Someone who fights for people, for our rights, for those who aren’t seen and aren’t heard. Love someone who uses their voice to stand up for those in need, and to leave this world a better place than when they found it.

Love someone who makes you feel like, in the end, everything will be okay.

Because they’ll stand with you facing the wind, rain, and fire when it comes, never leaving your side. Your peace is now their own. TC mark

How do you tell your partner about a chronic skin condition?

Living with a chronic illness like Hidradenitis Suppurativa alone can be bad for your mental health. You owe it to yourself to find a significant other who wants to be there for you through good times and bad.
