It’s been a long time since you had a serious relationship. Since you felt a strong connection with someone. With every person you meet, you wonder whether they’ll make you feel the way you felt the last time you were in love, at least that’s what you thought. You wonder if they’re “The One.” Your perfect match. Your soulmate. Your forever person. But, nothing once again.
You’re stuck. You begin to think what it’s like to be truly wanted and needed by someone. You begin to think what it’s like to be truly loved by someone.
And even when you’re happy with being single, you know that a part of you is looking for real love. You feel like you’re constantly chasing love.
But, there is no point in chasing love. Because love will find you when you are ready for it.
So, instead of chasing love, wait patiently.
Wait for the one who accepts you and cherishes you the way you are. The one who embraces your insecurities and fears. The one who understands that your flaws don’t determine your worth and that they don’t destroy your inner beauty. The one that loves you because of your imperfections, not despite them.
Wait for the one that understands you fears and insecurities. The one that knows when your anxious thoughts start clogging your mind. The one that knows how to help you silence your negative thoughts.
Wait for the one who listens to you attentively when you are talking. The one who shows that your words have meaning for them. The one who lets you know that your worries and problems are theirs too.
Wait for the one who respects your feelings, needs, and desires. The one who makes you feel like you’re the most appreciated and loved person in the entire world.
Wait for the one who makes you feel safe and protected. The one whose presence brings you peace and comfort. The one in whose arms you feel secure.
Wait for the one who cheers you up when you’re down in the dumps. The one who puts a smile on your face when you’re crying. The one who hates seeing you worried or sad. The one who feels happy when you’re happy.
Wait for the one who is always there for you. The one who never leaves you to deal with your problems and pains alone. The one who shows you that you can always count on them to help you and support you.
Wait for the one who doesn’t leave at the first sign of trouble. The one who doesn’t avoid taking responsibility for their actions. The one who doesn’t leave you to handle your relationship issues on your own. The one who talks out any problem that may arise in your relationship with you since they don’t want anything to destroy what you two have.
Wait for the one that doesn’t only tell you how they feel, but they show you too. The one who is not ashamed to wear their heart on their sleeve. The one who is not afraid to show you their vulnerable sides. The one who is not afraid to undress their soul in front of you.
Wait for the one who never makes you doubt their feelings. The one who never leaves you wondering where your relationship is headed. The one who shows you how much you mean to them.
Wait for the one who shows you that love doesn’t have to be hard and painful. The one who shows you that honest, caring, loving, and loyal people do exist. The one who shows you that genuine, close, and deep bonds do exist. The one who shows you that true, selfless, and unconditional love does exist.
Wait for the one that understands that relationships take hard work but is willing to do anything to be with you and keep you in their life forever. The one that fights for you with every fiber of their being. The one that is afraid of losing you.
The one that will never give up on you.
