You changed my life. And for that, I am most thankful.
I am not sure you have the slightest idea how much you mean to me.
In fact, I don’t think you are aware of just how much you’ve done for me.
For so many years, love only meant pain for me. No matter how much others tried to convince me that love is a remarkable experience when it’s shared with the right person, I didn’t believe it. Because unlike others, I never had the opportunity to meet my soulmate, my kindred spirit, the one and only love of my life.
All I had in my life were mistakes and disappointments. I had a broken heart and wounded soul. I was no stranger to manipulation. In fact, I was a victim of a few toxic relationships. Every day in my life was a struggle. I had no hope I will meet the right one for me. I somehow attracted people who never wanted the same out of life. They never managed to fill the void of sadness and insecurity inside of me. The only thing they did was rob me of my hopes and dreams.
I suffered. A lot.
I had no idea what true, healthy love felt like. I didn’t believe that such thing even exists.
And then something completely unexpected happened.
You came into my life. Out of 7.53 billion people in the whole world, you found me, and you chose me. You fell in love with me and you decided that you want to spend your eternity alongside me.
And that moment right there was the beginning of one of the most beautiful and life-challenging journeys in my life.
We met randomly, but I swear to you, at that moment I felt like the earth stood still and time stopped. At first, I tried to hold it in and temper my excitement, to move forward cautiously, but as time passed, I felt this liberating feeling inside of me. Something kept telling me that I shouldn’t refrain myself from loving you. And I gave in… Completely.
That was one of the best decisions of my life.
You were the one that I was searching for. You helped me open my heart and believe again. You were there for me when I wasn’t strong enough to be there for myself. You lift me up and gave me wings to fly. You tended to my wounds and healed my broken heart. You showed me that love is always there for the ones who are brave enough to wait for it. You brought sunshine into my life and introduced me to colors I never even knew existed. You encouraged me to be myself again and never ever be ashamed of my differences.
You, my love, was the light at the end of the tunnel that gave me hope to never give up on life and love.
And because of that, I am thankful.
Because of that, I’m exactly where I was always meant to be.
My heart is finally open, my wounds are healed, and I am no longer afraid to love again.
