How Do I Know They’re The One?
Falling in love is an exciting new time in one’s life. Falling in love means a new person to share memories with, finding new hobbies, meeting new families, and becoming vulnerable to open yourself up. With change comes fear and this is normal. You may breathe now. I know this is where things get scary, but where there is discomfort, there is growth. The beauty in falling in love with someone is that it’s someone to share this growth with.
As you begin to imitate their little habits, and they yours, things will begin to feel real. This is the person you really spend so much time with and love every single thing about them. Enjoying each day as it comes, it’s normal to think into the future. Are you wondering if they’re the one? Should you be investing all of your time and energy into this person?
You Don’t Get Tired Of Them
Well, this is a bit dramatic. IT IS OKAY TO NEED YOUR ALONE SPACE! If you’re finding you need a minute to yourself, this doesn’t change how you feel about them! Actually, this shows you have healthy boundaries in your relationship. While you are spending time with each other if at that moment you forget every worry you have and are simply living in the present, embrace this.
They Make It Feel Easy
Effortless love- how beautiful is this? When loving them comes easy, then let it. There aren’t nit-picky arguments leading nowhere, the communication is clear and each day with this person is a breath of fresh air. Relationships aren’t easy, but loving someone is (or should be.)
They Make You Feel Great
Surrounding yourself with those who make you feel that you’re good enough as you are, and look forward to the growth you will have, are the types of people you want to surround yourself with. No competition, no jealousy, and no issues. If they make you feel as though everything you do is not only great but ENOUGH and wonderfully appreciated, then this person is in love with you. They love you for who you are and what you will be. In this relationship, there is no room for the negative downplayed opinions, just the confidence in who you are and all that you hold.
They Are All You Can Talk About
As corny as this may sound, if this person comes up in every conversation you hold, they’re probably the one. In a healthy way, you can’t get them off your mind! This person is relevant to all topics and situations and you can’t help but to imagine every scenario that comes your way other than sharing it with them.
If while you’re reading this, that one specific someone comes to mind and checks off each box, you are in love! If it feels right, let it feel right. Let yourself be embraced in this journey and feel warmth, fulfillment, and love.
