Let’s get one thing straight.
There is no such thing as perfect love.
Society has raised us to believe that when you finally find that one special person that you’ve been destined to end up with, your life will suddenly become a fairytale. Skies will turn pink, unicorns will fly high to the sky, and the sun will shine brighter. You will finally live the life of your dreams. Pain and sadness will go away, the questions will no longer bother your mind for there will be none. Put simply, you will achieve eternal bliss…
Well, surprise surprise… Real life doesn’t work that way.
I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but there is no such thing as perfect love. And there is absolutely no such thing as a perfect relationship, only a real one.
The kind that really sees you for who you are. The kind that inspires you to work on becoming the best version of yourself. The kind that helps you put down your walls and boundaries and let it consume you completely. The kind that gives you the strength and courage to share parts of your soul with another human being and open the doors to your vulnerable heart.
You may not find perfect love in your life, but that’s fine. For one day you will find a love that accepts the real you. A kind of love that embraces your flaws and shows you that it is perfectly fine to be the kind of person who balances both fear and hope inside them. A kind of love that won’t judge the way you express your emotions, the way you heal your wounds and the way you live your life. The kind of love that won’t abandon you when you take off your mask, but rather stick with you forever.
So, I suggest you give up on finding perfect love. For, I promise you will be disappointed.
Real love may hurt you and break your heart, but it will do so for your own good. It will dive deep inside your soul, reveal all of your dark sides, face your demons, turn your world upside down, and in the process it will help you get to know the real you. Real love will sit you down and ask you everything that it needs to know about you. It will never stop exploring your world until it learns every little thing about you. What makes you cry, what puts a smile on your face, what your dreams are made of, what traumas your heart carries, how much pain and sorrow there is inside of you, how you choose to deal with life’s challenges…
Everything… Real love will question everything. And it won’t stop until it gets answers.
No, this won’t be a perfect love. But it will be the love that opens your eyes forever and helps you realize just how worthy you are. This love will show you that you are more than enough. It will finally make you realize that you are not foolish for loving the way you do. It will make up for all those times that you had to pretend to be someone you are not in order to make someone accept you. It will heal your wounds. It will hush your doubts and release yourself from all of your insecurities.
This love will help you see the real you…
