I spent young adult years of my life with one man and they were some of the darkest, most desperate and lonely times of my life.
Now it’s different…thank f***.
Now I share my life with a partner/an equal, someone who wants to know me and accepts me inside out and me likewise.
Someone who knows my truths and won’t judge because that’s not who I am now and me likewise.
A love where we want to please each other not because we feel we ought to but because it brings us joy,
where we don’t feel responsible for each others happiness but we are happy and content to just be together.
Where we can talk about anything and know the other will truly listen.
Where we are always free to be ourselves and will forever find joy in holding hands even in the tough times.
His love has taught me that I am responsible for my own happiness but that having that special someone, my soulmate, is the cherry on the cake.
