Sometimes it’s easy to settle and forget the kind of love that you deserve. This is a letter for me, for you and for anyone who might need a reminder of what that kind of love is — what you are worth. You deserve more than someone who shifts to the other side of the bed, leaving you dreading the thought of morning, a reminder that intoxicated desire looks different a few hours later when the sun has risen. You deserve someone who wants to wake up to touch that place on your face where the sun seeps through the blinds and lands on your cheek. You deserve someone who tells you how beautiful you are while you’re sleeping, when you’re mad, when you cry during your favourite movie even though you’ve seen it a thousand times. You deserve someone who appreciates you for who you are. You deserve someone who asks to keep the lights on so that he or she can admire you at all times. You deserve someone who doesn’t agree with you all the time, but when you argue, it feels as if you’re pushing each other to be your best selves. You deserve someone who wants to sit down and talk with you until dusk turns to dawn about new beginnings, desires and the unknown. Someone who knows that the touch of warm skin sometimes says more than a thousand conversations could. You deserve someone who is just as independent and driven as you are — if not more so. You deserve someone who will inspire you — someone who will trust you enough to provide you with space to grow. You deserve someone who pushes you to understand yourself, to be unashamed and courageous. You deserve what is best for you, which looks different than what anyone else has. Although you’ll have to jump some hurdles, fight tears and endure nights alone to get there, when you finally stumble upon what you do deserve, from there, the rest won’t matter. Have faith that it will come when the time is right. You deserve it. With Love, Someone who cares..

    Thank you. I did need to hear this. I thought I had found that person but 2 months into our marriage he wants a divorce. We had a 4 year long distance relationship and after marriage, never allowed me to move there. We have been married for 14 months and go th court a week from today. We all deserve this type of love but for some, they just don’t know how. My God is great and I pray one day he sends me this kind of love. Thank you again and God bless. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻❤️❤️❤️

      No, I’m grateful for knowing him and just because he can’t give me the love I need doesn’t make him a bad person…I still love him, we just want different things. I hope one day to be in a place to just be really good friends but I have to get beyond loving him the way I do. I pray one day God sends me a man that can love me this way but I also believe, most men aren’t capable of this kind of love without God’s love showing them how to be the man God intended for them to be…only then can they give the love that God puts in their hearts and only then can they love their spouse as God intended…God commanded for our husband to love his wife as God loved the church…that’s real love, everlasting love! God has a plan for my life and I’m at peace knowing that…

    God showed the ultimate price of love by dying on the cross for our sins…the problem with relationships and marriages are they aren’t God centered…God was the one who created marriage not man so why would we not expect and not make God the center of our relationships and marriage? So many fail, including mine because my husband AFTER marriage he no longer wanted God in our marriage. He knows what he is doing is wrong is why he wants nothing to do with God right now. I have forgiven him for all the pain and pray for his life and more importantly, his surrendering of his life to God. Yes, my faith in God is what has gotten me through but I must also remind myself this earth is not my home…I’m only here for a very few years but my eternal is with him and my God will see me through anything on this earth as long as I surrender it to him and keep him as the most important one in my life…God bless you my friend…Prayers for you and God has a plan for you as well!!
