That One Person

I’m someone who keeps people at a distance, as I tend to energetically become drained. Nature is where I am most at home. Near water, surrounded by trees and earth. I’ve moved around a lot, met lots of wonderful people along the way, but, historically I keep to myself.

This way can be very lonely.

What I’ve always wanted is one person to be both my best friend and my life partner. This one person is who I feel safe with, can share my everything with; share my opinions, thoughts, dreams and desires with. Someone who doesn’t judge, deny or try and change me. Someone who doesn’t abandon me, is 100% committed to me, with both feet in the relationship.

This has been a journey, as I’ve stumbled along the way, searching for this. When I stopped searching, it happened. What I mean by this is that I stopped reaching for it and sat back to let it come to me. I waited. It happened.

It = That One Person.

Takes A Belief It Will Work – With Hard Work

Michael and I took a leap of faith when we married, because we really didn’t know each other. We saw a wonderful possibility, a great future together – steeped in our belief in love. Idealistic and romantic, yes. When reality set in, scary. We had to evaluate core beliefs and come to respect and learn to live with each other’s values.

This wasn’t easy. We’ve endured many difficult conversations and many challenging situations. Throughout it all, while working on our marriage and ourselves – we’ve become each other’s best friend.

We’re still growing and changing – in ways that enhance our friendship, our marriage, our life. But, we are doing so slowly, with heart and patience, as we together navigate this crazy thing called life.
