When you find your person later in life, you will never take their place in your world for granted. You will forever be thankful that they’re in your life because you know what it was like to live without them since it took you two so long to meet each other. You will never take advantage of your person or forget to tell them how much they mean to you because you genuinely appreciate them. You are genuinely excited that you have them around now.
When you find your person later in life, you will know how to work out problems in a mature, healthy way. You will have plenty of experience dealing with conflict, whether it’s with your exes or family members or coworkers. Since you are older now and have a good handle on your emotions, you won’t fly off the handle. You won’t end up saying things you regret and can never take back. You won’t have a complicated history with each other because you’re meeting at a time where you’re both the best versions of yourself.
When you find your person later in life, the relationship will go smoothly because you already know exactly who you are as a person. You’ve already had plenty of time to get to know yourself, what you like, what you want, and what you cannot stand. You’ve had plenty of chances to figure out your dealbreakers and the things you’re unable to live without in a relationship. Since you’ve spent so much time on your own (and with the wrong people), you’ve learned valuable lessons about how to be happy. You can ask for what you want because you know what you want.
When you find your person later in life, you know the proper way to give and receive love. You know how to treat others and how you should be treated in return. You won’t accept unfair treatment or ignore red flags because you’re too experienced for that. You aren’t going to settle for anything less than the best, so the right person will have to reach high standards. They’ll have to put in effort and give you what you deserve. They’ll have to rise to your expectations.
When you find your person later in life, you aren’t under the impression that you need them. You know that you can survive without them if you need to in the future because you’ve spent so much of your past without them. You know that you’re self-sufficient, which means you’re in this relationship for the right reasons, because you fit together so well and make each other so happy, not because you need someone by your side. Not because you feel pressured to pick someone.
When you find your person later in life, it’s just as beautiful and magical as any other relationship. So don’t wish that you met each other sooner. Just make the most of the time you have together now. Make sure that you cherish every second you share.
