Do you ever feel like you have outgrown people? And not just people, but the way you do things, how you approach them? I certainly do.
It amazes me how many people chase the thrill of push-and-pulls, hot-and-cold relationships. Unfortunately, I was in that situation too.
Mind games is a serious issue that’s become so common and – what’s worse – expected. When did this happen?
I don’t want to feel nervous after every text I send. I don’t want to fear hearing lies. I don’t want to let someone’s pride or lack of interest dictate how I live.
What happened to genuine, old school ways? A sweet and committed love? Seeing your significant other and no one else?
Making an actual effort to make them happy and feel safe and cared for just because you love them?
Why has everything become just a lame ego game? I don’t want you to prove to me you’re better than me or anyone else.
I don’t want you to show me how desirable you are by ignoring me, downplaying me, or treating me like an option.
If you’re going to treat me like an option, then I don’t want to be with you. It’s degrading and I don’t deserve that.
I don’t accept halfway commitment or love. Why should I? Partner is the person you spend your life with.
I don’t want pretense and fakeness. Why should I share my life with someone who’s not capable of processing, understanding, and feeling genuine feelings?
Love isn’t about bragging and it’s not a competition. Love is giving life meaning in two. Making each other comfortable and celebrating all the good things in life together.
That’s what I want. I want you to care for me and love me, and me doing the same for you. I long for caring for someone who is brave enough to do the same for me.
I want to feel free to be myself around you. If we’re not ourselves around each other, it simply doesn’t make sense.
Isn’t the purpose of life to live it fully, authentically, and unapologetically?
I don’t want to lower my standards or downplay my dreams just because some man doesn’t have a healthy relationship with himself and seeks attention everywhere else but in himself.
If you’re not ready to face your own faults and insecurities, don’t expect me to do it for you.
If you don’t want to fully commit and have other plans in life, then leave mine. It’s simple.
You can’t build a relationship on something that’s false. You can’t build it on fear of not feeling enough that’s covered up in stupid pride.
Pride has no place in real love; it can’t stand the deepness of true love. When you love, you don’t take advantage of someone’s weaknesses and flaws, but love them despite them.
Real love is when you know that the other person knows the real you – your heart. It talks without words; it talks with looks and actions.
It’s not about power games and who’s going to win over who. It’s about trusting each other so deeply that you give the other person everything you are and know they won’t use it against you.
When someone loves you truly, you always feel safe with them because you know they know your heart’s true intentions, even if you say or do what you don’t really mean.
That’s love. That’s what every person wants. That’s what I want and I know that someday I will find it.
I know they say it’s rare, but not finding it is not an option for me.
I know I will find a man who knows how to love me for the person I am. I know I will have that genuine love I dream about because I’m open to it.
When it comes, I will recognize it by the purpose and freedom it gives me to finally be myself, and his arms that feel like home.
