We are told that we shouldn’t allow our happiness to be dependent on someone else. That we must be content within ourselves before we can accept love from another. This sounds well and good; self love is important and a valid goal to have. However, if you are fortunate enough to find someone who truly cares about you, they will help you to see yourself the way they see you. Flaws and all.
Despite your bad self esteem
Despite your weird laugh
Despite your terrible skin problems
Despite your inability to manage time properly
The right person will love every hair on your wretched little body.
And you won’t be able to understand why. It may even make you angry at times. You’ll become desperately frustrated that they don’t know why you are so awful.
At the same time, you don’t really want them to. A rational person would leave, for sure. They would use their energy on someone as wonderful as they are.
However, loving eyes can rarely see. Rose colored glasses and all that.
Having someone who wholly loves you is a life changing experience. I would hope that everyone could feel this way at some point in there lives, the longer the better.
