I’ve been writing this blog for months now. It seems like it’s been longer, though, with the amount I’ve written. I put my absolute heart and soul into writing this blog, hoping to help others and find a common ground with people who can relate. I’ve been sincere when writing about my life to you guys. I think the readers of this blog probably know me better than half of the people I’ve met throughout my life. I wanted to dedicate this blog post to the one person who knows me like the back of their hand, my boyfriend, Hector.
I’ve never written a love letter like this before. There’s so much I want to say, but I’m not sure where to begin. Should I start by telling you I love you? Or that the days I spend with you are the happiest of my life? Or that in the short time I’ve known you, I’ve come to believe we are meant to be together? Rereading that, all I can think about is how you are the only person who knows me better than myself.
I want you and everyone to know how truly grateful I am to have you as my best friend, boyfriend, and soulmate. I am in love with everything you do.
I love what you are. What you do, how you try. I’ve seen your kindness and your strength. I’ve seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand, with perfect clarity, exactly what you are.
This has always been one of my favorite quotes, and I never understood it until I met you.
My fairy-tale loving self has learned that love doesn’t have to be a grand gesture to be romantic. It doesn’t have to be roses, candlelight, and poems to sweep me off my feet and make me feel treasured. I’ve learned that you getting up early to drive me to work or getting the groceries for me is what makes my heart go pitter-patter, and I don’t hate it one bit. You love me well.
I don’t tell you this enough but thank you. Thank you for being my person. The person I know I can rely on when my world feels like it’s falling apart. Thank you for giving everything you got into us.
Thank you for making time for me, when I know you’d rather play games with your friends. For putting things on hold when I need you. Thank you for putting up with someone crazy, needy, and difficult like me; I know it a lot harder than you let on, but you love me even though I am all of these things. The way you’re always encouraging me to do my best and believing in me, even when I can’t even believe in myself, makes me want to be better for you. From the moment our paths crossed, you’ve captivated me, challenged me, frustrated me, and improved me in ways no person has done before. And I have fallen in love with you again and again. I want to be true to you, support and encourage you, challenge and frustrate you. I genuinely believe we are good for each other and that we will continue to grow stronger together.
I want to thank you for being so damn amazing, for you’re everything that I’ve ever wanted and so much more.
Our story is my favorite story.
Happy Valentine’s Day
P.S. It may be old, but this is my favorite picture of you. You look gorgeous.
