There is never a certain time or a specific place for true love to find one another. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat; in a single flashing, throbbing moment. You never plan to fall. You never plan to look for something. And then it stands in front of you, and you wonder where it’s been the whole time.
That love will be different. The way they’ll stare at you won’t remind you of the bittersweet, lusted, drunken looks others gave you. Their eyes won’t make you feel hollow and insecure, you’ll feel safe and in the right skin. They’ll implant a lasting moment in your brain, and all it took was a simple “hello.” You won’t have to pretend to be different. You won’t have to pretend to fake how your heart really feels. All of a sudden it’ll be easy. In finding time, you’ll be able to find yourself. With them, you’ll no longer glance around to see who was staring before you kissed them or held their hand tighter. All of a sudden, it won’t matter who was looking, and for the first time in your life, you just won’t care. They will be all that matters. That’s how you’ll know it’s different.
One of the most amazing things that can happen is finding someone who sees everything that you are, and doesn’t allow you to be anything less. It’s seeing the potential in one another. It’s seeing the endless possibilities among each other. And through each other’s eyes, it’s beginning to see yourself as someone who matters, as someone who has a place in the world. Somewhere in the middle of self-discovery, they’ll come along and decide to treasure you. They’ll hold your hand and they won’t let it go. They’ll hug you so tight that you’ll forget anything was wrong. They’ll do everything to protect the fragility of your heart. They’ll stand by your side, and will have built you up from the pain that’s broken you. They’ll care for your heart like it’s the most precious gift they’ve ever been given, like it’s the most precious and priceless thing in the world, and it just rests in their hands. They’ll love you in ways that you’ve never imagined possible. They’ll choose you, over and over again, without question. They’ll show you that love is choosing to stay, no matter what comes your way.
Love begins in not trying to find anything and then suddenly realizing; you have something. Somehow, you’ll end up utterly, undoubtedly, and entirely complete.
