Never Quit Striving To Finding Your True Prince Charming

Love does not quit, so why should we?


Love. Such a small word but takes part as one of the most important aspects of our lives.

At 5 years old, you cannot grasp the concept of what love really is. You hear the word being used every time your parents say "I love you" to each other, but you still do not understand how significant this word is. Everything and everyone you come in contact with becoming something that you think you love. You're too young to realize that the little word love is actually a feeling you get. It is the best feeling.

At 7 years old, you tell your dad that he is the only boy that you will ever love. He becomes your "Prince Charming" and promises to never let anything or anyone hurt you. This is what love feels like for you. You believe that no one will ever be able to replace him because he tells you all the time that he isn't going anywhere. It is the best feeling.

At 13 years old, you are no longer afraid to talk to boys. Your dad is still the only boy that you really love, but you begin to take notice of the different kinds of boys in your class. Your friends no longer just want to hang out with you and the girls all the time, but now they want the boys to be invited. This is when you got to hold hands with the boy you thought was cute. It is the best feeling.

At 16 years old, it feels as if boys are the only important thing in life. You are still searching for that feeling of love but you don't even know what you are looking for. Instead of hearing your parents say "I love you," you start to hear your friends saying it to their boyfriends. You get asked on a date with the boy you have always liked and begin to think you have found your true love. It is the best feeling.

At 19 years old, you begin to reserve your feelings and trust more towards people because you know what you want. Now, your dad becomes the person you look up to and look for in a man. The moment you least expect it, you find a man that has all the qualities and characteristics you have been searching for. You think about this person 24/7 and begin to think of your future together. You realized that you finally found the feeling of love and want to hold onto it forever. It is the best feeling.

Now, take a step back. You look through these years and realized that you always thought you had that best feeling.

As time passes by, we go through these moments we never want to end, but they must end in order for us to actually experience the best feeling possible. Heartbreak is the worst feeling one can go through, but we must remember that our "Prince Charming" is still out there looking for us, and the pain we feel right now won't even be comparable to how we will feel when this day arrives.

I Had To Love Myself Before I Could Be Loved Again

Always know your self worth and love yourself.


After being in a toxic relationship, I had fallen out of love with myself. I began to hate the person I had become. I had gained more weight which made me resent my body. I saw each one of my flaws which I was reminded of from him each and every day.

I began to hate the size of my upper lip because I felt like it curved up too much when I smiled. I hated the size of my breasts because they were overly huge and he reminded me of that. I hated the size of my fingers because I was told that was the only small thing about me.

I hated everything about myself.

After leaving him, I began to love myself again. I began to love the way my top lip curled up when I smiled because my smile is beautiful. I got a breast reduction and that made me feel amazing. I realized my fingers were a normal size since my ring size was normally sold out.

I fell in love with the size of my body. I fell in love with the fact that I was 5'2 and I was short and that was OK. I fell in love with the length of my eyelashes and how my hair is naturally wavy.

I had to see that I was beautiful.

I realized my beauty. I realized I was worth more than what I was being told. I realized how intelligent I was. I realized my self-worth.

After falling in love with all of these aspects of myself, I was able to let someone else fall in love with them. I had to find the pieces of myself that were beautiful to allow someone else to find them as well.
