I know you’ve closed off your heart, told yourself you won’t fall again. I know you’ve pushed people away, wanting to be on your own. I know you’ve wanted to heal and fallen short, time and time again, feeling more and more empty every single day. I know you’re nervous—of being vulnerable, of caring so much and then being left, of getting hurt.
I know you’ve turned a cold shoulder to love and relationships, believing that you are just one of those people who is meant to be single for life, capable and content in your own skin.
But in the back of your mind, you’ve been longing for love. Under the surface, you’ve been itching to get close to someone again. And as much as you try to ignore those feelings, at the end of the day, in the moments before you fall asleep, you hope that one day you won’t feel so alone.
And you won’t.
Someday, love will find you. It will creep upon you and seep into your bones. It will fill your emptiness and overflow all the spaces inside and around you. It will make your heart lighter, your lungs fuller, your eyes brighter. It will surprise you and scare you and suddenly shift your every doubt into security.
It will be everything you didn’t know you needed, and everything you’ve desired for so long. It will be all that you waited for, prayed over, wished upon late at night.
Love will everything you imagined, and everything you absolutely deserve.
But you must be patient, believe, trust, know that you deserve to be loved, and have faith that the right person will find you. You have to work on yourself, pursue your goals, build yourself and be open to what lies ahead, whatever relationships and connections that could potentially be.
You must stop allowing negativity and bitterness to control you, to determine your fate, and instead let yourself be unhindered and unburdened. You must realize that you are so incredible, and so worthy of a forever love. And one day, you will look back, arm-in-arm with the one you’ve given your heart to, in awe at your past is belief.
I love you Mekh,
