It’s not going to be easy. You’re going to need patience, it’s going to be work. But when you find someone who wants you, all of you, please don’t ever let them go.
So many people come and go in and out of our lives, some stay, many you may even really like and connect with. But this is different. To find someone who leaves an imprint on your soul, whos roots have entwined with yours, who looks at you as if you’re magic, who won’t ever stop fighting for you, that comes once in a lifetime.
Whatever you do, don’t let them get away.
They might screw up. They might drive you absolutely crazy, they might frustrate the hell out of you. They might make mistakes. And so will you. You’re human. But if they’re willing to never stop fighting for you, never leave when you hit bumps in the road, if they’ve never left when you got caught in the rain or when certain ‘options’ were trying to get their attention, please don’t ever let them go.
If they touch you like it’s second nature, with love and passion, not just ‘Netflix and Chill’ touching, where the touching is always a means to an end, if they look at you like you are the reason that this fucked up world makes sense to them, if they plan ahead for you, make things special for you, and not just come over to chill because they’re bored and want to be with someone, then please, don’t ever let them go.
No relationship is perfect, ever. But you don’t want it to be. You don’t grow when things are perfect. Perfect will never inspire or satisfy you. Perfect will never teach you.
Maybe you’re going to have to work at this relationship everyday. Maybe you’ll fight too much, be at each other’s throats while times are tough, maybe they will hurt you, disappoint you, but I promise you, if they never leave, if they want to choose you, fight for you no matter what, you can never let them go. All that matters in the end is if you can call them at 3 am, if they will lift you up no matter how dark it gets, if they’ve seen you, all of you, and love you even more for your edges. If you’ve told them all about your past, all the things you’re ashamed of, all those things you wish you would have done differently, and it just brings you closer, please don’t ever let them go.
There are so few people who we meet in this world who just get us, who love us infinitely, no matter what we do, with their whole body, mind and soul. Don’t let anything come in between that - not any fight, person, or circumstance. You have a love that builds, that makes your soul alive. Don't let this love get discarded for the next hit because you’re mad, too stubborn or can’t let go of something in the past. Don't lose this love because of your pride, fears, ego or selfish ways. Put in the patience. Put in the effort. Find a way to make it work. Because if you let this go, in time, you will regret it.
You don’t want to look back years from now with a heart heavy with regrets, not able to come up with a reason good enough for letting them go, not even remembering what you fought about in the first place.
Some people are worth fighting for.
