In relationships, we often overlook certain things at the beginning that might turn out to be annoying at a later time. We often believe that those little quirky things he does are so cute but after a few months, there is nothing that annoys us more.
The same goes for love. Naturally, love is the fuel that makes the relationship go forward. There is no doubt about that. Without love, what do you really have?
But having said that, as much as love is needed in a relationship, there is one thing you often don’t consider as crucial as it actually is. And that one thing is having a partner who believes in you.
It is one thing to have someone who loves you, gets you, knows your likes and dislikes and is there on your worst days. But it’s another thing to have a partner who believes in you and supports you with any and all endeavors you might pursue.
A partner who is never going to doubt you, no matter how ridiculous your new business idea might be, but rather believe in you just as much you believe in yourself. A partner whose undying support you can always count on, and who will always encourage you without questioning your pursuits.
Date the man who loves you but also genuinely believes in you and in whatever it is that you strive to accomplish in this world. A guy who never doubts your capabilities and in no way limits you.
Date the man who you can openly share your dreams with, without feeling you might get judged or criticized. Someone who won’t shrug off your ideas and pretend to support you but really not even care about what you’re saying.
There is always going to be doubters and naysayers. There is always going to be someone trying to put you back in your place and tell you, “No.” The world is full of those. So strive to find a guy who won’t mind you sacrificing your time with him in order to achieve big things. Things you are passionate about. Things that make your heart beat faster with the excitement of endless possibilities.
You should date the man who doesn’t let you fall off track simply due to bad days. Somebody who will take you by your hand and tell you how hard you’ve been working on this and not to give up so easily. Someone who will never let a bad day get you down.
Date someone who will joyously celebrate all your achievements, no matter how big or small, because they know how important every step is and will celebrate you in your every success. And with that support, you will find it even easier to continue on your path of discovering how far you can go, without anyone dismissing your ideas. He knows how hard you’ve worked and he respects that.
Date the guy who feels blessed to have you by his side, in front of the whole world. The guy who sees you not only as his partner but as a capable human being who is able to achieve so much on her own. Someone who will bask in pride and not mind looking at you from the sidelines while you are doing your thing. He knows you’d never take him for granted and he’s okay with sometimes taking a back seat. This is your time to shine and he will never take away from that.
Love is important but when you have somebody’s complete support and encouragement as well, that is when you have found a man who is a keeper. If he believes in you when you stop believing in yourself, look no further. You have found your man.
