There are some people who walk into your life, and instantly, in a matter of seconds, everything just feels better. It isn’t that life has to be difficult or tragic before they walk in - you could be just fine, life could be just fine. But you learn what true happiness is only once they’re there. You, my love, are that person for me.
I remember the first day I met you. I instantly knew we would be friends for a long, long time to come. There were just so many levels on which we clicked. Of course, at that point, I didn’t know just how much you would mean to me - least of all, that one day you would mean the world to me. That I would think of your happiness as much as I would think of my own - because I see you do the same for me.
I’ve always been a believer in the concept of soulmates. I always believed that you’re supposed to meet someone, and when that someone is your soulmate, you’ll just know. You’ll know because your entire being will stir with excitement, your legs will shake, and your heart... Your heart will skip many beats. But when I met you, I felt calm. I felt composed. I felt more relaxed than I ever remembered feeling. It’s what I feel even now when I’m with you. At peace with myself and the world. I’m not worried, I’m not afraid, I’m not thinking about the myriad problems that exist in life. I’m just me, in my truest, happiest form. Of course, it took me much longer to realise that this is what one ought to feel with someone they think of as their soulmate. You reassure and calm even my soul.
I never thought I would ever really say this for another person, but I’m so thankful that you’re part of my life. You have taught me so much, without even realising it. You’ve made me happy, yes, but you’ve also made me more loving and warm towards everyone else in my life. Maybe that’s what true happiness does to you? You’ve helped me make new friends and develop relationships that I will cherish all my life. You’ve opened me up in a way that no one else could have. I was shy and, perhaps, a slightly underconfident girl before you came along. You’ve helped me come out of my shell and be completely free - sans any inhibitions! Maybe I was always this person, but you’ve helped me discover a side to myself that I love. Hmm, you’ve rubbed off on me, haven’t you?
I know our relationship hasn’t always been perfect. We’ve had our share of ups and downs. We’ve had our fights - we still do. We’ve hurt each other. But in my opinion, that’s what makes us even more special - that’s what has made us so strong. We’ve fought with each other, but also for each other. Through all those crazy arguments and endless debates about which one of us is right, we never once thought of giving up on each other. Although a lot of times that did seem like the easier option. But it isn’t something we ever wanted to do. Giving up on you, walking away from us - that is just not an option for me. And I know it isn’t for you either. We love each other. Not the fleeting, momentary kind of love. Not the kind of love you can live without. It’s the kind of love you can’t do without once you’ve felt it! And, in the end, no matter what happens, it will always help us find a way back to each other.
Love, always and forever,
