Posted in love, Salient Thoughts, Truth


Somewhere along life’s way you’ll meet someone who will change the way you’ve seen life, who’ll give life a new meaning and make you feel like you’ve been living in a dream all these years. you’ll meet someone who will wake you up and make you feel  love. Someone who will rock your whole world and make you feel alive. Along life’s way, when you feel
like nothing else could happen that would excite you, that nothing else could interest you, that where you are now, if it ever gets better, it’s because you got enough wealth to see you through life, and that happiness everyone keeps yapping about is not what they say it is…

Somewhere along the way, when you’ve nearly given up, someone will walk into your life to stay. Someone who will face your battles with you and stand by you no matter what, someone who will remind you that you matter and look at you like no one else exists… Somewhere out there is someone who can’t wait to meet you….

But if for now, all you  got is yourself, then  i dare say for now, you’ve got all you need. It can’t be overemphasized how important it is for you to love yourself more than anyone could ever love you, because when all is said and done, the one you get to live with is yourself, your choice. When you learn to appreciate yourself, it won’t matter if other’s dont know your worth. Those who know who you really are know your worth.

So, instead of focusing on findind someone else to love you, to tell you that you matter, to excite you and rock your world, to stand by you in difficult times, why not make yourself that someone first. Be your number one fan. That way, when you find someone who loves you, you’ll matter to yourself as much as you matter to them, and your whole life won’t be based on someone appreciating you, but rather on you loving yourself for who you are, and in that, you’ll find true hapiness.
