5. Mistakes won’t affect how they love you
The right person will love you, care about you and support you even when you have significantly screwed it up. Although they will be mad at you, they will still greet you with a smile and a kiss. They will love you even at your worst. Just like they will love you at your best.
6. They will love your family & friends
Your circle of friends and your family will love them just as much as they will love the people important to you. Most of the times our parents and friends often tell us when a person isn’t right for us. Loving the right person and being in a relationship with them will make your parents and friends feel safe as they will know you will be loved and cared for. The right person will take the necessary efforts to gain the trust of your parents and will give them the assurance they need. They will never pose a threat or ignore your friends and family.
7. You will feel free and independent
“Someone who loves you will reveal beautiful things within yourself… things you had never noticed before… things nobody else cared to.” – Steve Maraboli
When you’re in the right relationship, you won’t feel controlled and dominated. As they will trust you completely, they will trust your decisions as well. They will not tell you what you should or shouldn’t do. They will support your every decision but will also tell you when you may be wrong about something. However, they will give complete freedom to take every decision independently without trying to influence or manipulate you.
8. They will respect you
You will never feel suffocated when you’re with the one you’re meant to be with. They will let you be without being needy or desperate for your attention. They will know that you need your personal time to be with yourself, your work and your friends, just as much as they do. The right person will respect your need for space and bring that much needed balance in your life.
9. You will feel accountable
“Find someone who openly communicates their feelings. Someone who realizes that you’re not perfect and never expects you to be.” – Brigitte Nicole
As they will trust you and let you be yourself completely without trying to influence you, you will feel accountable for your actions. When a conflict arises, both of you will apologize and hear each other out instead of blaming one another and pointing fingers. You will be willing to talk out differences and accept your mistakes. Moreover, you will also be open to doing things differently if needed, without getting defensive.
10. They won’t make you feel abandoned
The right person won’t leave you for any number of reasons. They will not leave you heartbroken nor will they abandon you to rot alone in agony. They will not walk away when you need their love the most and need them to hold you in their arms. This how how a relationship with the right one will be different.
11. You will feel proud of them
A toxic relationship is riddled with assumptions, insecurities and jealousy. But when you are with the right person will have a lot of admiration and respect for them. Instead of feeling ashamed of your relationship, you will celebrate them. You will be thankful for having them in your life and you will trust them. Their beliefs, principles and achievements will make you feel proud just as much as they will be proud of yours.
The right person will be worth all the pain
“The right person will come, once you have suffered enough to deserve (him or) her.” – Juvenal Lopez
Relationships can be really frustrating when you are with the wrong person. It can leave you emotionally scarred, making you feel that you will never find true love. But it’s out there. The thing is, you can never ‘find’ the right one. You have to let them come to you. And that will happen when you go out there and live your best life. When you become the best version of yourself instead of rotting in your self-imposed mental and emotional prison.
