A loving relationship is one in which the loved one is free to be himself – to laugh with me, but never at me; to cry with me, but never because of me; to love life, to love himself, to love being loved. Such a relationship is based upon freedom and can never grow in a jealous heart.
To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.
What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined for life? … to strengthen each other…to be at one with each other in silent unspeakable memories.
I have never believed in soulmates. I never thought there is one person made for me. One person who I am made for and is made for me. I believed in connections. A click. A spark. I've had all of those. And obviously those never amounted to much. Pain. Broken hearts. Wasted time. Lies. Broken promises.
I've been in love. And even in the moment of love I never felt like that person staring back at me was "the one." Lustful feelings and intimate connections arent the same as a soulmate. I've never felt overwhelmed thinking about me and that other persons love. I have never gotten teary eyed thinking of spending the rest of my life w/ anyone.
Now I feel like I am having to rethink my beliefs on this matter. Jonathan has come into my life and now I feel like we were made for each other. But there are 7 billion people in the world. That cant be possible. Well whether you believe in soul mates or not, I can tell you I have had a change of heart. Theres no way anyone could convince me.
We are better people together. We have improved each others lives. Its only been 3 months and the changes already have been so great. I can only imagine what our future holds for us. It may be unpredictable but I can say we will make it thru by each others side. Supporting each other emotionally, physically and any other way one needs.
As far as my own personal feelings, its as simple as looking at a pic of me w/ him. I'm practically glowing. I am proud to have him by my side, to call him mine. I just...I love this man...lol. Plain and simple. And when I'm casually passing time "pinning" wedding stuff on pinterest I find myself kinda getting a little overwhelmed thinking about forever w/ J. I feel so blessed that we were picked for each other. And altho I am in no rush to get there, I do love the idea of US, forever.
Thank you for being a real man. A man who works hard to provide for his future and to achieve his goals. Thank you for loving me unconditionally. All my drama, ex's, family, etc. You dont have to put up w/ this crap but I am thankful you do. Thank you for loving the people and things I love. It means so much to me that you treat Chance like hes yours, and that you want to learn all my cousins names. I love that you read my blogs and that you want to know every thought and detail about me. I feel like about you too. Thank you for being protective over me and looking out for me when it comes to my safety, my health, my car, etc. You may feel like thats a given but so many men have stopped being that kinda man. Thank you for being a perv. :) You make me feel sexy and desirable and I have missed that for far too long. Thank you for letting me be the woman by your side. I love taking care of you. I love being the one to help you on bad days, I love being there to play on good days. Just thank you for being you.
I love you.
