You Deserve To Receive The Kind Of Love You Pour Into Others

I hope you know that you deserve to receive the kind of love that you pour into others. 

You deserve someone who will be there in the wee hours of the morning, listening to your worries and your hopes and your fears. You deserve someone who wants to listen to your dreams and champion what they hear and then dream right alongside you. You deserve someone who will stroke your head when you’re weary from the day you’ve had and someone who will gladly let you fall into their arms as you drift asleep at night. 

I hope you know that you deserve to receive the kind of love that you pour into others. 

You deserve someone who wants to be with you—someone who wants to be there on Sunday morning as much as they want to dance the night away on Saturday evening. You deserve someone who will want to stand by your side at work events and happy hours as quickly as they will for family barbeques. You deserve someone who wants to spend time with you beyond their own convenience or the late-night hookups of a Friday night. 

I hope you know that you deserve to receive the kind of love that you pour into others. 

You deserve someone who will remember how you like your coffee and the allergies that make going out to eat a little tricky. You deserve someone who’s going to send you a funny meme to make you laugh and a book or television recommendation because they know that you’ll love it. You deserve someone who will know the color of your eyes without having to give it a second thought and the pattern of freckles that smatter your cheeks. You deserve someone who will pay attention to the tiny details that will make someone who they are—the things that cannot be seen but felt and discovered when another person genuinely listens. And is invested and pours into someone what they are receiving. 

I hope you know that you deserve to receive the kind of love you pour into others—I hope you never settle for a droplet of love when you deserve the whole ocean.
