Stop chasing love – love will find you when you’re ready for it. When you’re ready to fully embrace it.
Stop worrying that ‘The One’ will never appear. That you’ll end up alone.
Stop thinking about that last one-sided, messy relationship that made you believe that true love doesn’t exist.
Stop thinking that there’s something wrong with you. That you have to change so as to make others like you more.
Because there’s nothing wrong with you. You don’t have to pretend to be someone you’re not. You don’t have to try to make yourself more lovable. You don’t have to be ashamed of your weaknesses and imperfections.
Because you’re perfect just the way you are. Because the person who will be right for you will love you for who you are, with all your annoying habits and insecurities.
Because this person will know your worth and love you the way you are.
Therefore, stop chasing love.
Stop seeing your “missing half” in every person you meet out there that is kind to you and showers you with compliments and sweet words.
Don’t settle for just anyone – wait for the one who is able to see beyond your outward beauty.
Wait for the one who can see the beauty of your soul. Your qualities. Your strength. Your uniqueness.
Wait for the one who doesn’t make you feel ashamed of your insecurities, fears, and mistakes. The one who doesn’t call you “too sensitive,” “crazy,” or “paranoid” when you get emotional or your anxiety reaches its peak.
Wait for the person who listens patiently to you when you are talking to them. The person who tries to understand you when you’re complaining about your jealous friend or nosy colleague. The person who lets you know that your words have a meaning for them.
Wait for the person that is not hesitant or afraid to sacrifice their own priorities and desires for your happiness.
Wait for the one that is not afraid to leave their comfort zone and go the extra mile to make you feel the happiest, the safest, and the most loved.
Wait for the person that shows you how you should’ve been treated and cherished in your previous relationships. The person who treats you the way you deserve to be treated.
Wait for the one that knows what to say to make you laugh when you’re feeling down in the dumps or crying. The one that gives you the most comforting hug when you’re sad. The one that, on your worst days, holds your hand, looks tenderly at you, and tells you: “Don’t worry, honey, everything is going to be all right – I’ll always be by your side.”
Wait for the person that doesn’t leave you to deal with your problems by yourself. The person that does their best to help you ease your worries and alleviate your pain. The person that sticks with you through thick and thin.
Wait for the one that makes their love for you known. The one that doesn’t make you doubt their feelings for you or where you stand with them. The one that proudly wears their heart on their sleeve. The one that is not afraid to love and be loved.
Wait for the person that is invested in the relationship as much as you are. The person that tries to keep the original flame of passion between you always alive. The person that is willing to work with you to resolve every problem that may appear in your relationship.
Wait for the one that brings you peace of mind. The one that makes you feel content and emotionally fulfilled. The one that makes your life happier and more interesting.
Wait for the person that is everything you ever wanted. The person that shows you that love doesn’t always have to be hard and painful. The person that shows you that true love does exist.
Wait for the one that loves you wholeheartedly and unconditionally. The one that appreciates your kindness and the purity of your soul. The one that feels privileged for having such an amazing person in their life – for having YOU.
