“Wait for the person who would do anything to be your everything”
I’ll start off by saying be single. I don’t know how many times I can say this. You’re young, you’re amazing and have so much to learn about yourself before you should commit to someone.
I can’t stress it enough, you need to love yourself before you can truly love someone else.
Relationships aren’t easy and aren’t something that should be rushed. Take it from me, it’s taken a hot minute to figure this out. Through all the rushed relationships and heartbreak, I’ve realized that being single isn’t so bad. It’s actually a good thing. There isn’t any stress, no expectation and to be honest you don’t have to worry about anyone other than yourself.
Focus on what makes you a better person. Whether it be excelling in school or at your job, volunteering, or making yourself mentally and physically healthier. Just do something that changes you for the better.
Because how you see yourself is generally the kind of people you attract and you don’t want to be with someone who treats you poorly now do you? Nope, I didn’t think so.
As silly as it sounds, it’s okay to go to the movies alone or to treat yourself to a good meal. You don’t always need someone to do those things with. Like I said before and I’ll say it again; if you can’t love yourself, you can’t love someone else. I’m not saying always do that stuff alone, but once or twice every couple of months isn’t a bad thing, it gives you a bit of quality “me” time.
When you are ready for a relationship, just make sure it’s with the right person for the right reasons. If your views and goals aren’t similar to each other it is going to cause some tension and stress. Then boy oh boy just watch how things start to crumble.
Don’t date someone just to date them. Your end goal, as cheesy as it sounds should be that you want to or could see yourself spending your life with them, not to just have fun for a while until you are bored with them. At the same time don’t put any pressure on the relationship to get to that point one day. Yes, ending up with that person forever, while it would be awesome, sometimes just isn’t the case. Things happen and heart-break occurs, but that just means you get another chance to make yourself even better as a person.
Never settle for being anything less than the best. So go out there and be the amazing, beautiful person you are!
