Love is not supposed to feel like pain. Love should liberate you from the bondage of attachment. Love is meant to empower you and become your strength. Love should make you feel worthy of yourself. Love is supposed to build you up and make you shine from inside out.
You will know it’s love when you find the one.
He /she won’t be coming into your life with a light over their head looking for you or shouting from rooftops announcing that they are the one. You won’t feel any butterflies in your stomach or have some fancy dreams like they show in the movies.
It’s going to be a very very ordinary encounter when that special person walks into your life. They will not attempt to stand out of the crowd with their talk and their behaviour.
They will be the quiet and comforting kinds. The one, who will listen to your nonstop idiotic jabber with a wonder in their eyes and a smile on their faces. They will think that you are a complete fool. They will even make fun of your every move and laugh at your nonsense.
But they will be kind, funny and safe.
You will feel like being in the safest place on earth when you are with them. You can sit with them in total silence and it won’t be awkward or boring.
They will win your trust before they win your heart.
They won’t be the most significant person to you at first, but you will be invariably drawn to them like a magnet. And when they become the most important person in your life you will settle for no other.
You will never question their motive but rather believe them wholeheartedly.
They will be the one who understands your mood by just a text message you send them. They will know and understand that you have your bad days and that you are not perfect in any way, but will stick around you in spite of it all. They will know how to cope with your mood swings and how to control your anger.
They will stand by you; stand by your fears and your dreams, your hopes and your insecurities. They will stand with you and help you build your confidence. They will motivate and inspire you.
They will respect you for who you are, never trying to change you or your beliefs.
They will let you live your life according to your whims .They will protect you and guide you.
They will definitely sweep you off your feet but it will be a slow gradual sweeping- the one you won’t even realize.
They will love you quietly in their own sweet way. But that love will be worth every ounce of its weight in ‘gold’
That’s when you will know whom your heart and soul belongs to.
