• I love you.

    Dear You,

    If I had a dollar for every time that you’ve hurt me, a dollar for every time I let it happen, a dollar for every time I had faith that you wouldn’t do it again, a dollar for every time you promised you wouldn’t, a dollar for every time I said “I love you”, a dollar for every time I thought about you, a dollar for every time you said you’d change, a dollar for every way I changed for you. If I had a dollar for every time I’d buy a time machine and erase the day we met, the day you first hurt me, the day I fell in love despite that, the day I took you back and I’d erase today because today hurt the most. But I can’t so I know that when you apologize for this time I’ll take you back once again and sadly I know you’ll hurt me again. I know the truth but I can’t help myself because I love you. I love you more than anything in the world, I love everything about you. The sight of you, your smell, your laugh, how you hold me, how you kiss me, how you walked through the snow for me, how you make me laugh, your presence, how I feel when I am near you, how I can never stop thinking about you, and how all I want to do is protect you from the world including yourself. I love you more than you know and wish you would see that, see that you don’t need to push me away because I am that one person who won’t hurt you. I am not like everyone in your past and it hurts inside to know that you think I am. I want you to know that I am willing to forget all the times I’ve been hurt and move on. I am happiest when I am with you and I hope you are too.

      You took the words right out of my mouth. So well written. At some point though I will hopefully reach the ‘enough is enough’ stage and rather than waste time on someone who is constantly hurting me, find someone who deserves my love.

      It is possible to reach that point where enough is enough. I reached it before, and am so happy I did, because as great as I thought my life was, it has gotten even better. I know that the person I was meant to be with, was there all along, always supporting me, no matter what rollercoaster emotions I had. Now I’m happy with him, instead of the guy who made me cry every week, and instead of me feeling like I just keep giving and taking way too much fighting, it’s an equal sharing of happiness 🙂

      Just be strong and truly, look deeply into your heart, and realize you deserve to be happy all the time, not just those few times.
