First of all: Thank you.
Before life surprised me and brought you to me, I was miserable. I didn’t even want to live. I had had enough. I was depressed and broken. Love had beaten me down.
Love was my biggest enemy.
Before you came along, the man who I thought was ‘the one’ used me, and when he was done, the only thing he left were the shattered pieces of my broken heart. He didn’t care. He moved on.
I was the one who had to heal by myself. I was the one who had to fight depression. I was the one who had to find the courage to go out again. He just picked up where he left off.
And then you came. You carefully took me and brought me back to life. You didn’t have to do that. It would have been easier for you if you didn’t do that. But still, you wanted to.
Thank you for all the times you’ve been by my side. Even when I asked you to leave me alone, you were there. You kept your distance and you gave me space, but you were still there.
Thank you for every time you’ve climbed the walls I built around me.
Thank you for finding the way to reach me.
Thank you for reminding me how beautiful and worthy I am.
Thank you for respecting me like I respect you.
Thank you for loving me when I felt I didn’t deserve to be loved.
Since the day you came into my life, I realized I had longed for you to come. I realized that my life suddenly has sense. I realized I was missing you all this time.
Having you by my side has brought me happiness and nothing else. Now, I know for sure, I’m going to be happy for the rest of my life. Now, I know I’m going to be loved unconditionally. Now I know I needed this—I needed your unconditional love from the start.
I thought that no one can understand me—that I am all alone—until you showed up and convinced me to think otherwise. Before, I imagined I would be living a lonely, sad life, but now, I can’t imagine a life without you.
To my love, the one that saved me—thank you for showing me that life is so much more than pain and suffering. Thank you for helping me learn to love myself. I would never have succeed if you hadn’t given me your unconditional love.
Thank you for putting up with my ‘crazy ideas’ and my different sides. Thank you for being there for me when I am at my worst. Thank you for smashing every single brick that I lay when I start building the wall around me. Thank you for not letting me hide inside.
Thank you for loving me with my flaws and my past. Thank you for sharing the burden of life with me. Thank you for loving me.
