Sometime last year, a couple months before we got engaged, I read a Brianna Wiest article on Thought Catalog titled The Love You Want isn't Always the Love You Deserve. It's good, you should have a read. A few things stayed with me, and in the run up to the day we say I do (86 to go! WHOA!), I thought I'd share the ones that stuck:
- You need someone who will lift you up. Who has as much drive and ambition as you do. Who wants to go to the places you want to go
- Who will support you on the way there.... Someone who is looking to be in a partnership
- You deserve someone who loves you right now, just as you are
- And you deserve someone who is “on your level”
Her message had to do with not selling yourself short... mine has to do with being extremely happy and content with what I've got. Coming from someone who is rarely satisfied, that says a lot.
