Hello my dearest ones ! Lately i´ve been in a really nice state , the feeling that everything is going to be ok ,the feeling that ,if the past relationship didn’t work out it doesn’t mean I don’t deserve to be loved . I said to myself: YOU my dear deserve happiness. YOU deserve to be respected, treated well, strengthened, and appreciated. YOU deserve a partner who see YOU beyond your faults and flaws. A partner who will inspire you, who will bring you up when we’re down, who will support you when you can’t find your footing, who won’t leave when times get tough or something better comes along. YOU deserve the world. YOU deserve to fall into a relationship with someone who adore YOU, with that person who see you as valuable, and special, and worthy of their affection and attention.
YOU deserve real L❤️VE —the passionate, steady, consistent, dedicated LOVE. And no, you honestly shouldn’t settle for anything less.
There isn’t perfection. There isn’t a person who will
cross of every item on our list or meet all the criterion in my mind or always say and do the right thing, but there is such thing as real love. And I should let myself fall deeply into that, and only that.But the problem with honoring what I deserve and not settling for anything else, is that sometimes it leads me into entitlement. Sometimes it gives me a big head, makes me feel as if i´m on top of the world and that no one is worthy of the love that I give.
But this makes me wonder … Am I giving that kind of LOVE in return ?
No, I should never settle. But am I becoming the person who deserves the love i´m looking for?
Am I becoming the partner who will do the same for ,my forever person ? The partner who is steady, consistent, dedicated, trustworthy, honorable? The partner who will strive to be the best it can, not only for myself and others, but for each other?
There is so much to be said for not settling, for holding out for the right people, for not falling into relationships purely because of the fear of being alone. There is so much to be said about being with someone who builds you, rather than breaks you. Or finding your way out of something unhealthy or toxic.But we also have to take a look inside ourselves, too.
It’s not solely about finding the love that I deserve, but making sure I’m a loving person and I deserve to be loved, too.
Because at the end of the day, we’re all human and we’re all looking for connections with one another. At the end of the day, we’re all trying to find someone whose soul and mindset are compatible with ours, enough to tie our lives together. Love isn’t easy. It isn’t waking up to another beautiful day with a beautiful person in a beautiful home with a beautiful life. It’s conflict. It’s frustration. It’s not always seeing eye-to-eye, and staying up late arguing about pointless crap. It’s not knowing what to say. It’s feeling empty sometimes. It’s wanting to give up. But it’s staying. It’s fighting. It’s continuing. It’s working back to affection, simply because you’ve chosen this person. And you’ll continue to choose them, no matter how hard life gets.
So please, never settle for what isn’t LOVE. Never fall into something just because you’re tired of being alone, or you’re scared, or because you feel there’s no other option.Please, never forget that you’re worthy of being chosen.
But also make sure to fight to be someone worth choosing.
With all my love ,
Gabrielle x ❤️
