“I believe in true love. I believe in love at first sight. I believe love conquers all. That doesn’t mean there’s not gonna be hard days or difficult things to deal with, because there will be. But finding that person who does it for you and knowing that person loves you back, that just makes everything so much easier.”
Being in a long-term relationship has its ups and downs. Things don’t always go your way. You’ll fight, you’ll drift apart, drift back together, and fall in love all over again. Things are never perfect in any relationship. But pushing past those imperfections and loving the person that you are with, unconditionally, is what will push you through.
I’ve been so unbelievably fortunate to find someone that wants to stick by my side, through thick and thin, and be with me for me. He accepts me for who I am, the good and the bad.
These last two years have been the happiest of my life, and I owe a lot of that to my boyfriend, Nick. He’s one of the most understanding, genuine people I’ve ever met. He accepts me for who I am and who I want to be, supporting me every step of the way.
My anxiety doesn’t make me someone that is easy to be with. It gets in the way of a lot of things, affecting my life each and every day as well as the lives of the people around me. Nick has been more supportive, understanding, and loving than I ever could have asked for or even imagined. Even when I was the most difficult person on the planet to be around, he stood by my side and held me up, supporting me as I battled my anxiety with everything inside of me.
Finding someone that accepts you for you can feel impossible sometimes, almost like that person doesn’t exist. That person exists for everyone. Some of us just take a little more time to find that person than others. The right person will complement you, support you, and love you unconditionally. I’m so thankful to have Nick in my life and I couldn’t ask for anyone better to be my other half.
I love you, Nick. Thank you for the last two years and I can’t wait for many more to come.
