One Day You’re Going To Meet Someone Who Stays No Matter What

One day you’re going to meet someone who will remind you how all those beautiful words in songs, poems, and stories were written.

One day you are going to meet someone who will make you feel scared of what you’re feeling – of that intense pull that you won’t be able to ignore. And you’ll be surprised at how, for the first time in a while, you can see someone in your future once again.

But you’ve allowed yourself to fall for the idea of true love far too many times. You’ve allowed your heart to soar with hope only to have it fly aimlessly until it crashed. Again and again.

So when you meet this person, you are going to put up every barrier you could. You’ll try to put up a façade so you can hide. You’ll try to sabotage every chance you could get. And it will hurt you. But you will talk yourself into it, telling yourself that a little dent is better than being broken.

But this person will see through the façade you put up, love every crack you’ve had to endure, and choose to fight for your love. This person would look closer, see everything you wish to hide, and still love you.

And when you finally let this person in, however hesitantly, you will quickly realize that there will be no need to fear. Because this person won’t be the same as the others. This person will decide to stay.

And it will not be perfect. But it will be wonderful.

One day you’re going to meet a person who’ll make you laugh out loud until you can’t breathe. You’re going to meet someone who’s willing to go to any length to make you happy. And there are going to be times when you catch yourself looking at this person and wonder how they could love you despite your flaws. And that person is going to look at you, smile, and tell you that they see every flaw and love you anyway.

You’ll go on long walks and talk about everything. You’ll be able to talk about your fears, dreams, regrets, and even the things that you thought you’d never be able to say out loud.

You’ll be brave enough to admit about fearing not knowing what the future has in store for you. But you’ll both come to the realization that despite the uncertainties of the future, you both know one thing for sure – you’ll always have each other. And that will not just be something that will comfort you; at times, it will be what keeps you both going.

And when you find yourself in a tough spot, you’ll try to blink away the tears in your eyes and smile through the pain. But this person will look closer, see that you really hurt, and just pull you in their embrace. There will be no need for words. Because knowing that you have each other at that moment will be more than enough.

You are going to meet a person who will make you remember all the other people you loved and who loved you but chose not to stay. But you will find yourself being able to smile at the thought of all the times you’ve had your heart broken because you know that you won’t have to go through that again.

One day you’re going to meet someone who won’t leave just because it’s difficult.

One day you’re going to meet someone who’s going to remind you that not everybody leaves.

One day you’re going to meet someone who stays no matter what. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
