@cierraanise - Peace of Mind
i've been asked a few times "do you even know what love is?" And my answer would be the typical "someone who calls you beautiful all the time and accepts you who you are" I've been wrong the whole time (not surprised) How I see "love" is, when someone teaches you self love. Don't let them go. They notice your flaws, tell you about them and they help you work on them, and improve. Once you start finding yourself and start working against your flaws, thank them. That person wants to get inside of your mind, not just your jeans, and see how you work, & see your perspective on life and beyond. They want to be your soul food, and ultimately want you to be theirs. Someone like that is rare to come by, and they can be gone quickly. It doesn't take a lot to show appreciation to someone. Just let them know, don't let them slip away from you. Because the moment they're gone, it all changes. The steps you took to go forward start to erase, you start reverting back to your old self. With them, they are gems, blessings. Yes blessings, because it's not everyday that someone comes by putting genuine effort into you, caring about you like no one else could. Maybe even more than your own self. Grow together, learn from them and allow them to learn from you. Form a bond that nothing can break, or bend, become one with him/her. Be each other's escape from reality, but also be the reality check that they might need. Become someone they can count on, be each others back bone, support, become 100% comfortable with them, without force. Make your word your bond, be exciting, spontaneous, & fun with them. Be each other's best friends, be each other's favorite person. The one you want to tell everything to, and vice versa. Whoever is bringing you a peace of mind, reciprocate that energy, the outcome is beautiful. And make sure it's real, unquestionable, irreplaceable, only then can you say the word love. You won't have to second guess yourself. Only then can you say the word love, and mean it without any doubts. Then you'll know what love means.
