I Don't Need You but I Wholeheartedly Want You

I’m confident of my independence and I know in my heart that even though I’m capable of giving you my heart completely,  I don’t need you to validate my existence. Yes, I want all of you with all my being and I will fight for our love and what we’ve built. But if anything goes wrong between us and our hearts have to part ways, I know I love myself enough to be alone and feel complete without you. 

I’m the type of girl that knows all too well that happiness doesn’t depend on someone else. I refuse to believe that my heart can only be at peace if I have you in my life. It doesn’t make me cold or detached from love or my ability to receive your affection. I’ve always been wired to live life as an independent being where I’m the only one responsible for my life and especially my heart. 

I believe that in order to love fully I have to know how to navigate the world on my own. I have to make sure that if life throws me a curveball, I’ll be able to find balance and stability within myself through my own efforts. I’m sure I can because I’ve worked hard to build inner strength and resilience and I’m confident of my self-determination to accomplish a fulfilling life whether or not love happens to be in the equation.  

So, yes, I don’t need you but I wholeheartedly want you and there’s a difference. I don’t need you to save me because I don’t need saving. I don’t need you to make me whole because I am already whole.  All I really want is for you to want me in your life as much as I want you in mine. 

I want you to share your world with mine and share your independence with mine. I want you to embrace your independence as much as I do mine. I want us to share our imperfect selves and let our hearts express what we feel for each other freely,  boundless.
