We see the supposed criteria for the perfect or right man, woman, or sometimes just mate posted often on the internet. But something was made very clear to me just a moment ago via my weird thought process that I wanted to say to all who will read this, especially to those comparing their love to others and those that are single, trying to find their special someone. Yes, we ought to be treated with love and respect, give that very same to the one we love, and yes, true love does in fact exist. However, what makes someone the right one for you is unique to you. Some want romance, others not so much. Some are spontaneous and adventurous, while others are by the book and often predictable. Some are quiet and reserved, while others are chatty and making friends wherever they go. Some are good at remembering birthdays, anniversaries, and things like when your first kiss was, while others don’t have such good memories. The list of comparisons is endless, but I learned at church on Sunday that comparing people to other people isn’t such a healthy thing. We all have strengths, things that make us a good friend, mate, and person. We all have our talents. When two people work together and fit in such a way that’s right and when the love and commitment is there for both people, then it’s right for you. It might not be what your friend, sibling, parent, or next door neighbor would pick for you or be what they’d see working for them, but it’s not about what works for everyone else. You’re unique and so what works for you might seem off to others, but it will feel right to you. Don’t compare what you have or are searching for to what others have or tell you that you should want. Only you can truly know what works and who is right for you. ❤

Dr. Seuss was a brilliant man. One of my most favorite quotes of his is, “Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.” He’s so very right. There is no one that is or ever will be more you than you, not even say an identical twin or perhaps even quintuplet. 😉 Don’t strive to be anyone else but you. You were made to be you and not anyone else. And no one can be you, no matter how hard they might try. Don’t try to steal someone else’s light, but don’t you dare let yourself fade into the shadows either! Shine your own bright light across the night’s sky. Know your own worth deep inside. Don’t rely on another to show you who you are. And know how very specially special you were made, unique and wonderful, it’s so very true. So go out there today, tomorrow, and every day after and be the best you that you can be, because there really is no one quite like you.
