BiteSize #1

What if I told you, maybe it’s your choice? What if you chose to not be independent?

And then it struck me. Maybe it’s true, maybe it’s me. It’s not that I have not been given a chance, but because I’ve been so comfortable so I never fought for anything. Maybe I’ve never fought because of the fear of rejection, the fear or hearing “no”. So maybe, this time I’ll try.

Because everyone will care for themselves first, and you cannot expect anyone to take care of you. You have to fight for what you want.

And so, this time, I’ll try.

An Open Letter To The Love Of My Life

An Open Letter To The Love Of My Life

“Dear sweetheart,

A year ago you walked into my life and I haven’t been the same since. You are the love that came without warning. You had my heart before I could say no.

I originally wasn’t looking for a relationship, but you came and swept me off my feet. No matter how hard I tried to push you away, you always came back. I don’t know why you did because I’m a pain in the ass, but I’m glad because if you didn’t I wouldn’t have found my confidant, best friend, the love of my life.

You’re here for me through everything. Whenever I have a bad day you’re the first person I turn to because nothing is more comforting than being wrapped in your embrace and listening to you tell me everything is going to be okay. Sometimes when I’m being irrational (which is actually a lot) you tell me and I always protest, but you’re always right. You don’t even have to say much, but just knowing that you’re here by my side through everything is enough.

You make me a better person. I hate the phrase “better half” in a relationship because I believe that people in a relationship should be their own person, but you help me be the best possible version of myself. You are always on the sidelines cheering me on, no matter what crazy project I decide to take on next. Watching you succeed makes my heart happy. Nothing inspires me more than my love succeeding and conquering his goals. You’re my rock.

You inspire me immensely. You have a huge heart and would help anybody if you could. You don’t know this, but your mom has told me stories about you doing random acts of kindness that makes me love you even more. You’re the most genuine person I have ever met and tell people exactly how you feel about them. You don’t sugar coat anything and that’s a blessing in disguise for me. You’re smart, driven and passionate. That’s everything I was looking for and more.

Of course we fight, but what relationship doesn’t have bickering moments? They say love is blind, but it’s not. Love is all-seeing and accepting. Even though we both have flaws and irritate each other constantly, at the end of the day we accept each other for who we are. Love is seeing all the flaws and blemishes and accepting them. Love is recognizing all the fears and insecurities, and knowing your job is to comfort. Love is working through the painful times because you know your significant other is worth it. Infatuation is fragile and will shatter when life gets rough. Love is strong and it strengthens because it is real. Let me tell you, you’re worth it completely.

I can’t wait until we have our own house 10 years from now and we can nit-pick each other all the time while cooking dinner and watching reruns of Friends. Nothing excites me more than going through all of the stages of life with the love of my life by my side.

I love you for all that you are, all that you have been, and all you’re yet to be.

Love always,

Your girlfriend”

Over And Over

Over And Over

If every person has four lifetimes, I hope that this is my first, so that I can be with you over and over again thrice more.

In my next lifetime, I hope I get to meet you earlier, not much earlier but just slightly earlier, so that we can both be fearless and fearlessly kind.

Maybe then, we will both be unhurt and therefore less doubtful of love. But maybe then, we wouldn’t know what love is, and how we love.

If every person has four lifetimes, I hope I get to spend all four of mine with you.

I See Us In Forever

I See Us In Forever

I see us together,
living a happy ever after.
There will be times
when it gets difficult,
but we will get through them, together.

I see us waking up together,
going to bed together,
every night,
always remembering to say,
I love you to each other.

I see us strolling down the beach,
hand in hand,
our daughter on the right,
and our son on the left,
with lots of love for each.

I see us growing old together,
me a little faster than you,
and holding onto you
when I can no longer walk proper.

And I can’t wait to start the rest of my life with you.

Together, always.
