I know you’ve had enough of men who tried to put you down. Men who diminished you. Men who always wanted to be above you. Men who never cared for more than their selfish, boyish needs. Men who patronized you, insulted you, played with your feelings and broke you too many times. Because their egos were much louder than their minds.
I know you’ve had enough of men who never appreciated you. Men who took you for granted. Men who never appreciated your sacrifices for them. Men who never even cared to make up to you. Men who were always busy doing something else rather than paying attention to you.
I know you’ve had enough of men who tried to change who you are. Men who were annoyed by your quirks. Men who always criticized you. Men who shamed you publicly. Men who discouraged you from showing your true colors. Men who made you insecure. Men who knew all of your weak spots and played with them without ever giving a damn how you’d feel.
I know you’ve had enough of men who made you feel worthless. You were never enough for these people. No matter how much you tried or what you did for them, you always felt like you have to give more in order to make them love you.
I know how much you’ve struggled.
I know you’ve been through a lot.
All of these men broke you. They hurt you in the worst way possible. They played with your heart, they stole your dreams, they damaged your soul, they destroyed your hopes, they turned you into an insecure, paranoid, lost, miserable human being. A person without hopes. They turned your heart into stone.
You no longer believe that true love does exist.
But you know what?
It does. It might be hard for you to understand this right now, but it is the truth.
One day a man who sees your worth will come along.
One day, you will meet a man who will love you truly. Someone who will not be afraid to open his heart and let you in it. Someone who will embrace you with all of your flaws and imperfections. Someone who will make you feel like the happiest woman on earth.
One day, you will meet a man who will respect you. Someone who will appreciate you for having different opinions and certain boundaries. Someone who will respect your work and your independence. Someone who will be aware of how rich he is for having you in his life. Someone who will cherish your presence.
One day, you will meet a man who will hush your insecurities. Someone who will not only accept you the way you are but will also fall in love with the real you. Someone who will clarify your doubts, answer all of your questions and make love easier. Someone who will offer you more than you ever dreamed of. Someone who will open your eyes and remind you of your worth.
One day, you will meet a man to whom you will be more than enough. Someone who will feel blessed for having you beside him. Someone who will treat you with a lot of care and kindness. Someone who will help you heal those nasty wounds and rise above the pain. Someone who will stick with you through thick and thin. Someone who will love you the way no person has ever loved you before.
