Hello friends! As you can tell by the title, I've had quite a refreshing month. Yes, today is my one month with Tyler!
Honestly, I've never felt more comfortable, more accepted, and more loved by another human being. It's just extraordinary how much has happened in a month's time. As many of you might have read in the past, I have a high anxiety disorder. Well when I'm with Tyler, I feel brave. I feel invincible. He holds my hand through any rough situation and helps me tackle even the most simple of fears. I don't think he realizes how much I've accomplished (anxiety-wise) with him. And it's only been a month with him. How can we feel so strongly towards each other? It's nuts!
In more simple terms, I'm so overwhelmingly appreciative that I'm able to know him. He's such an incredible individual. With his free spirit, open mind, and big dreams, I'm continually blown away and inspired by him. He's extremely talented and doesn't realize it. Someone needs to slap him (just kidding, please don't smack him--he's so precious to be slapped). There's never a boring moment with this fellow. From harmonizing together in the car to doing Owen Wilson impressions, we make a point to never hide who we are. And we appreciate every bit of each other.
I realize that my outros have been cut off lately, but I'd like you all to know: You don't have to be in a relationship to be happy. This post isn't being published to brag. I'm happy. It's actually not something that happens to be very often. This is the first time I've felt love, so it's a HUGE deal. I'm reminded of a quote by Chloe Grace Moretz (which I can't remember it word-by-word, so you can look up the actual quote if you'd like): "Before you ever decide to love anyone else, learn to love yourself first and foremost. It's who you'll spend those cold, lonely nights with." (Again, that's just an attempt. I don't remember what exactly what was said.) Basically, don't let being single bring you down. Embrace wherever you are in live. Enjoy every moment of it. It's life--something amazing is bound to happen. Thanks for reading!
