I spent a lot of time searching for affection in shallow spaces I gave people bits of me they didn't deserve and I let myself be hurt, because I thought that's what I deserved. But once I let go of trying to shove puzzle pieces in places that did not fit, once I let go of all the hate I secretly had stored in the gashes that decorate my heart. I met you.
Every girl should be so lucky to find a partner that meets all of these. I am thankful every day that I found such a man. Never change who you are or let go of your own thoughts and beliefs to make someone love you. Losing who you are is just sad.
