Find someone who loves you well. Someone who never belittles you. Even in the heat of an argument. Someone who is gentle with you, but does not treat you like you are fragile. Someone who knows what you are capable of, and celebrates those pieces of you. Not someone who is intimidated by your strength. Someone who doesn’t make you feel guilty for being flawed. It is not love’s job to punish you. And remember the person you love is just as broken as you are when they fall short. No one is perfect – do not hold them to this standard. Find someone who is patient, forgiving, and apologetic. Someone who practices forgiveness freely and often. Love someone who is humble, kind, and empathetic. Not only with you, but with a beggar on the street, or a stranger in the supermarket. Common courtesy is important. Compassion is important. Kindness is important.
Best. Quote. Ever.
I posted this on my Facebook group and so many people could relate to it and loved it. Isn’t the above what love is ALL about?! Finding that person that gets you, doesn’t judge you, doesn’t put you down or make you feel bad even in moments of weakness. And the reminder that your person deserves that from you too.
Finding someone who is empathetic, kind, humble and treats others with respect is so important, and being that kind of person is just as important! Ahh… gives me all the feels. Find, and better yet, BE this kind of person ❤️
