When you find the one who gives you everything you want and more, you'll wonder why you settled for less in the first place.
I've always told myself I will never settle for less than what I deserve, and like most girls I was told at a very young age that I deserve the world. So, to my surprise when I didn't get it I was shocked! Then I realized that I didn't need someone to give me the world, I can do that all by myself. What I needed was someone who is willing to take on the world with me. I needed a partner, a person who understood my need to do things myself. Someone who would cheer me on and be happy for me instead of bitter or jealous. I am a strong independent woman, who also enjoys having someone by her side, and you know what...THATS PERFECTLY FINE! It's the best of both worlds. Honestly, I never thought I'd find someone who would appreciate my independence but also knew I needed the reassurance that I was being loved and cared for. It was like a piece of me was always missing. I had to mold myself into the person they wanted, just to make sure they were comfortable in the relationship while my feeling's were being overlooked. I figured that's what love is, making sacrifices for one another. I WAS WRONG! Love is being there for your partner, being their shoulder to cry on when things get hard or being their cheerleader when things are good. It's a balance of give and take. Some days you'll be at 90% and just living your best life, other days you'll be at 30% and just want to sit and cry, and both those days your partner will be there for you. You should be with someone who makes you feel whole again, not someone who keeps taking pieces of you away. No matter what happens, you are strong, you are independent, and you need to stay true to yourself. Don't let anyone take that away from you, because after all that pain and heartache, she finally felt whole again 🥰
