This is for everyone, all of you (in/looking for/having troubles with/giving up on) Love.
I’ve been reading through LINS, and I feel so undeserving.
I’m only 18, and I know.. I *know* I found my Love. The One that was made completely for me. We’re perfect with all of our imperfections.
It was by chance (though I do believe it was more than that) we found each other that night. It only took a few words for me to know I couldn’t lose this, couldn’t lose us.
You can tell me I’m wrong, you can argue that I’m too young to be so set on a life with someone. I am absolutely positive that this is real. I know what it feels like to not be sure. I’ve thought I was here before, but now I cannot believe how mistaken I was, how I *could* be mistaken. Love is unmistakeable when you’ve found it. But..
I don’t deserve this. I don’t deserve the happiness I’ve found so early in my life. There are so many of you who touch my heart with your letters, so many souls more deserving than mine to be with their One..
I am writing today to let you know that there are people reading your letters. There are so many comments left unwritten, of how sure we are that you will find your happiness. Don’t forget that. Just because we don’t say something to you, doesn’t mean we aren’t here for you.
I do believe with all my heart that you will find your happy. Be patient. A few months earlier, it would have been much too early for us. A day or two later.. I don’t want to think about it. I still cannot believe how fragile time and life can be.
My heart is with you. I do appreciate the chance I’ve been given, I feel so grateful. I will not take my Love for granted, I know so many of you are hoping and searching. It will come. In the meantime, enjoy your life. Don’t wait around. I wish I had taken my own advice, I’ve wasted so many years of my life feeling sorry for myself. I needed this opportunity to realize it, to stop taking life for granted, to realize that living really is worth it (when I was so close to giving up). Maybe that’s why Love came to me so early, because I needed it. We needed it.
And for those of you that have found Love, don’t forget. Don’t forget what a blessing it is that you have. Don’t forget those who are still looking. Don’t pass by any chance you have to make someone smile.. whether it be nudging a friend over to the cute guy over by the window, or just smiling at that flustered woman alone with 4 children. Love isn’t just between two people; it’s between friends, family, strangers..
