Ladies and gents,
Please. Whatever you do. Do not settle for someone who is even slightly less than what you deserve. And I am not saying you’re perfect or that you need to wait for someone who is perfect. There is no such thing. But you better not give someone a blink of your time if they don’t appreciate you for who you really are-quirks and everything. You deserve someone who thinks the world of you, who can’t imagine their ever changing world without you, who will do whatever it takes to make sure you know you matter. Be with someone who fights with you because they know you’re worth the argument and who will selflessly fight for you. Be with someone who challenges you to be better-not because they are- but because they inspire you to be the absolute best version of yourself. In the words of Juno’s father: “In my opinion the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what-have-you. The right person is still going to think the sun shines out of your ass. That’s the kind of person that’s worth sticking with.” Don’t forget your worth, friends.
Me at large dinner parties.
