And just like that, you understand why it never worked before with anyone else

I hold on to it without knowing I was about to experience magic.

I thought that was fine. That the photos of happy couples on Pinterest were just pose, that beautiful stories always have something gray, that only in movies could be 'and lived happily ever after'. I never imagined that you would come and shake my world completely. I did not know that I did not know magic, light, love, until you came into my life and made me understand why it did not work with anyone else before.

Many say perfect love does not exist, and I was convinced. I always thought that I could not find a partner who met all my expectations. "You ask a lot," my friends repeated. I was about to give up, I accepted couples with whom I did not feel 100% comfortable but a 60% was ok and even felt like a winner.

I thought I had known love, the kind everyone talks about: pure, sweet and eternal love. I was convinced that I had lived it all with someone and that my heart had experienced the strongest feelings. How wrong I was. I clung to being with that person, I did my best to have the title of 'his'. I planned a future thinking ‘well, is not perfect but it has these other traits that I like’. That's what relationships are all about, right?

I spent years like this. My family and friends were used to us, they knew that the invitations were double and that they had to set aside two places in the car. We went everywhere together with a fake smile, with a mediocre love and the thought of staying together even if there were things we didn't like.

It was not okay personally speaking. I saw how other girls were treated and I thought I had something bad because I don’t get the same attention.  I lived with insecurities, with fears, in a certain way I knew that at any moment I would lose him and I was terrified by the thought of being alone. 

The relationship continued, one more day of good morning messages, meals together and good night. Monotonous but stable, according to me. But then something happened. Suddenly we realized that our lives did not follow the same path. We left, but to tell the truth, I didn't let go of your hand. I pretended to walk in another direction but I clung to the familiar, to the safe, to the comfortable. I wanted to stay.

Amidst the confusion, sadness and pain, a pair of eyes full of light stared at me. What's that? Something I have never seen in my life. The tickling in my chest that I had already forgotten dusted off and sent chills all over my body. A few words were enough to get you into my head day and night.

Days went by and I wanted to know more and more about you. Why did you have my full attention? I was sad and little by little, I discovered that tears were gone. Instead, a big smile appeared. We were complements, the puzzle piece that perfectly matched mine. There was nothing I didn't like.  I didn't want it to end.

I wanted to be with you, you wanted to be with me. You filled me with light, magic, color and a lot of confidence. Suddenly, I realize that the hand I was holding on was gone. 

When did it happen? How did you come my way? What did I do to deserve such beautiful love? wait, love, is this love?

I knew I had been so wrong. What I thought was the greatest for my heart was not even a third of what I feel now. I wanted to know everything about his life and be by his side forever. 

I forgot that I 'had to put up with' things or that 'I asked for a lot', you are just what I wanted, everything I expected in a partner. Nothing made me happier than being with you.

We started our relationship, it progressed very fast for many people but we did not feel the speed. We were focused on letting it be, living and enjoying this unique opportunity.

I thank life for bringing us together and making me understand why, it never worked with anyone else in the past.
