Fall In Love With Someone Who Sees You
Fall in love with someone who sees you. Someone who sees your bedhead in the morning, and crusty eyes and puffy face, and thinks that you’re the most beautiful human they have ever seen. They see you in your best glamour armor and think you’re beautiful, too. Cause that’s the thing — the beauty that they see has never been about the perfect hairdo or outfit. It’s never been about clear skin or perfect abs. The beauty that they see, the beauty that they love, it’s always been deeper.
Fall in love with someone who sees beneath your skin. Someone who can look at your face and notice a twinkle in your eye, which makes them ask you more questions. Someone who can look at your face and see the sadness behind your eyes and know that all you need at that moment is the safety of a hug. Fall in love with someone who sees the unspoken bits of your heart, your mind, and your soul. They know what makes you twinkle, they know what makes you sad, they know what questions to ask and when to sit in silence, too. Fall in love with someone who sees what you hide from the rest of the world.
Fall in love with someone who sees your heart. Someone who sees all the good that’s within you even when you cannot even see it yourself. Fall in love with someone who sees all you want to be, and they champion you to live that every day. They hear you when you speak your truth. They call you out when you start to believe the lies you tell yourself. Fall in love with someone who pushes you to do what you want to do — the kind of person who still champions your dreams and your visions, even if they themselves cannot see it.
Fall in love with someone who sees all of you. When you doubt your skills, or your talent, or your beauty, or your intelligence, or heaven forbid, your worth, they remind you that’s it’s still there.
