I use to dream of finding my “other half.“
Both times I have fallen in love I actually believed I had found (him).
Because before them I didn’t feel whole.
I didn’t love myself.
I didn’t believe in myself.
I didn’t feel that I could actually be happy being alone.
Unfortunately, I am not one of the only people who have felt this way, and what’s even more crazy is people go their whole lives feeling this way.
This is where people screw up.
They feel it’s normal and just go with it, until they settle for anyone because they believe that without “someone” by their side they are not complete.
What’s funny is that before the relationships even ended, I was always looking for “something,” something that would take away the empty feeling I had. When I couldn’t figured it out, I assumed that it was the relationship, the person’s fault for the way I was feeling.
Now that I’ve learned, I’ve realized that the first time there was nothing missing, I was missing. The self love, the self confidence, the self trust, is what was missing.
You can’t fully love someone else like they deserve, if you don’t love yourself.
The second time, I was missing so bad that I actually convinced myself to believe that I deserved the “type” of love I was receiving.
I’m still learning.
So far, I have learned the definitions of “half” and “complete.”
and I now know I don’t want either or to define the person I end up with for the rest of my life.
I don’t want an “other half,” I want a WHOLE.
I want a whole person, someone who knows exactly who they are, what they represent, what they want, and who loves themselves enough to know how to love ME.
I don’t want to feel complete when this person comes along, or for them to feel like I complete them.
I want us to already be complete, only to come along and complement each others lives for the better.
I don’t want to be someone else’s ideal “Ms. Right,” or “The One.”
I don’t want someone that has been looking for someone like me their whole lives.
I want to fall into someone.
I want to come long and change their lives for the best.
I want to make them feel things they have never felt before.
I want to add to their happiness, I want someone who before me was already happy with themselves.
I want to be someones whole and I want them to be my whole.
I want us to be two wholes who simply just deserve each other, who simply just realized we wanted to to continue to grow while we watch the other grow.
I don’t want to ever end up with another half, or feel like a half again.
I refuse to settle for someone to complete me.
I want a whole someone, so that I can live with their all, learn about their all, and love their all and whole entire persona.
I want the next time I fall in love, to just simply be a whole who loves another whole and entire other person.
I want someone who can give me their all, while I also give them my all.
