Waiting

My life has been relatively short but I have learned quite a bit about love…

Some love and lose, some lose someone they might have loved and luckily some love each other forever. I think about that one or many loves constantly, always hoping I don’t miss my chance. My fear of never finding that love has made me create an unattainable goal in my head: find the perfect guy you will find the perfect relationship and you will get the perfect life. That whole scenario is what I’ve been looking for.

But I have realized that kind of perfection does not exist in a person. It exists in a connection, a relationship. That is what love is. Love is that person who isn’t necessarily perfect, but it perfect for you.

They say real love comes when you aren’t searching for it. I used to think that it was absurd to say that because most everyone is searching for love; and many do find it. But of all those people I know, who I’ve watched love, though it may not have lasted forever, I’ve realized one thing. They all loved. There isn’t a person I know who could end their life saying they haven’t loved. The moment I realized that was the moment I stopped searching. I stopped searching for that perfect guy, for that perfect relationship, for that perfect life.

I am waiting for it. No longer searching. Waiting, because I know it will come.

  1. Nice writing! People told me love comes when you stop looking for it, too. I always thought it’s easy for them to say that since they’re not the one waiting on love. (I’m short on patience.) But when I least expected it, I met my current love. Don’t worry, love will find you.

    • My mother, in her infinite wisdom, (or perhaps trying to teach me the art of patience) has always told me, “Good things come to those who wait”. I suppose it’s true to some extent.

  2. i wake up everyday hoping that this is true. Because i’m waiting too 🙂

    nicely written.

    • Many of us are waiting.
