Even getting to the point of dating you was not an easy mission. You were pushing me away, so sure that you were not good enough for me. You encouraged me to find someone better and someone who would make me happier than you ever could.
But it never occurred to you that the person in question was YOU.
I thank God every day you gave me the chance to prove it to you.
You love so unselfishly that it’s almost a defect.
You always want to give me the world, not caring about leaving anything for yourself. You’re the first person there if I’m in need. You are my constant ‘yes’. I know that I can ALWAYS rely on you, no matter what you may be going thought at that moment.
You never ask for anything in return. This is why I always try to show you how much I appreciate you and try to be there for you as much as you are there for me.
But you’re giving me a run for my money.
You never expect much, but the bar is so high due to what you do for me and others on a daily basis. It’s never just the little things. You go out of your way for everyone you love. Sometimes I wonder what it’s like to be you and be able to love so selflessly and always go so far for everyone.
At times, I feel fragments of guilt, simply for not being able to feel the way you do and care as deeply as you do. You always give it your all, and even when I KNOW it’s taking a toll on you, you are never done. You are always trying to make everyone happy, sometimes to the point of your own misery. But you’d never admit it.
You’ll never say when you are hurt.
For some reason, you always have your brave face on, regardless of what it’s costing you.
There were times when I was happy, when I had so much to be joyous about, and you were my number one cheerleader. But I knew those were some of the hardest days of your life. I knew you were going through something difficult. But you were still beaming with joy for me.
I can only imagine what it takes to completely suppress your emotions and disregard your own personal struggle, simply to be there for me. I can never tell you how much I love you for it and how much I hope I will be able to show you the same dedication one day.
What I admire most about you is your endless STRENGTH. You can take whatever hardship life throws at you and deal with it in the healthiest way. I only wish I knew your ways.
You never push me in any direction. You just let me be who I am. You always encourage me to venture out and pursue whatever it is that I feel passionate about. You are happy to see me thrive.
You appreciate the little things more than the big ones and show such appreciation for everything, no matter how big or small. You are always thankful.
You never put yourself first.
It bothers me how low you put yourself on your priority list. I literally have to tell you this every day. You and your needs are important. YOU are important. I have to make sure you don’t forget that, but don’t worry. I never will. You are the greatest blessing of my life, and I will forever make sure you know it and never forget it.
What I’ve learned from being with you is to NEVER take you for granted. Loving so deep and caring so much is a rarity in this world in which everyone looks out for themselves.
I’ve learned that your ability to love is so pure that it should never be considered a weakness. It is your greatest strength and something to be incredibly proud of.
I am the one who is unworthy of your love! I am the one who doesn’t deserve to have a man such as yourself by her side every day of my life. YOU are the best thing that I could ever dream to have in life, and I will make sure to show it to you for as long as you will have me.
