I've been keeping something under-wraps for over a year I have a great man in my life . We made our one year mark a couple months ago .
David has been the cherry on top of my life sundae ( I'm so corny )
Our relationship is far from perfect but he's perfect for me .
Our relationship has taught me so much over this year .
Patience And Balancing Time
With us both having busy schedules
( Him as a full time student and me working full time)
We have make time for each other , put in the extra effort
Tired or not I make sure I see him when I can .
I know he wont always be available because he needs to study and rest .
I've learned so much patience from that .
He has taught me how to communicate more .
I've always been the one to keep things inside and he hates when I do that
he would rather hear what I'm thinking good or bad.
I've never felt so open in a relationship .
I was always afraid to speak up in other relationships . ( crazy right )
I love that we can be so open with one another .
In the beginning of our relationship I let past experiences cause problems between us.
I had to finally let go of all the pain in the
past to truly allow him in especially if I wanted this relationship to work .
I trust him . He has given me no reason not to
Distance couldn't hurt what we have .
During the summer he went back home ( because the dorms was closed)
For 3 months I didn't see him for 3 months
Before he left I was a little worried we wouldn't make it but it actually made our relationship stronger
It all goes back to the communication and trusting your partner .
The Little Things Matter
I'm not one who wants to wined and dined all the time .
I love a movie night in the house watching a good movie on Netflix and eating some good food .
Cherish those little moment in bed just talking , cuddling and connecting .
Its Okay To Not Always Be On
As you all know I love my makeup but its not always needed .
I've never felt so comfortable being around a man with a clean face and a messy afro
Its Not All About Me
I have my good and my day just like he do . I know sometimes my problems isn't that important ( a crazy customer ) versus him not feeling confident about a upcoming test . I'm his biggest cheerleader I always want to uplift his spirits and reassure him of the amazing things he has done and will accomplish as he does for me .
Its crazy how much I've grown as be person these past 14 months
I know there are so many we can learn together
I can't wait to see what God has in store for us
To be able to grow together is an amazing thing .
What have your current and past relationships taught you?
