They say you accept the love you think you deserve, but we forgot the part where we fall short with ourselves. We see our flaws like they are open scars, see our imperfections like anomalies. Why do we think so low of ourselves? Why do we think we don’t deserve that kind of utter bliss? Why do we put ourselves down and wonder why we stay this low?
Our conceit makes us more self-absorbed, and combined with our negativity, makes us have low self-esteem. It makes us feel undeserving.
Well just in case you still don’t know, and maybe you try go deny, I will tell you so you better listen:
You deserve someone who raises their eyebrows at you with astonishment and bewilderment, like you’re someone they have never seen before.
You deserve someone who makes you look at your flaws and imperfections like it’s something that makes you real. You deserve someone who doesn’t see you as perfect, because you know deep down you’d let them down eventually. No one is perfect and everyone is unique, what you can only be is real. You deserve someone who thinks that is enough.
You deserve someone who will scoff and shake their heads at your silly little quirks and eccentricities and wonder how the hell did someone become this downright crazy, but they look back at you with a smile anyway.
You deserve someone who will laugh with you when you talk about your embarrassing moments, or your favorite shows, or your ridiculous family stories.
You deserve someone who will listen to your dreams and want to be a part of them. You deserve someone who will hear about your fears and will hold your hand when you face them. You deserve a sidekick, you are the hero.
You deserve someone who will frown at you when you do something that is not who you are and won’t make you happy.
You deserve someone who will let you go when you want to find yourself, and will wait until you come back.
You deserve someone who will not make you wait in vain. You deserve someone who will not let you wonder what they feel about you. You deserve someone who will not play with your feelings and use you as a pastime.
You deserve someone who loves you back.
You deserve to be loved even if you think you don’t.
