You are not half.

"You're my other half."

"You complete me."

There's a lot of people out there who are looking for their other half. I firmly believe, that you're not 50% of a person, but a whole. You're an individual person who has their own likes, dislikes, personality, interests, talents, and memories. This is a message to the ladies AND the guys. 

This isn't a bad thing as some think. It's really okay to be your own person and love your person with all of your whole self. It doesn't mean you don't get to love your significant other unconditionally with all that you have. You can still feel like you want to be with them forever, miss them when they're away, and feel like they make your heart it's fullest. 

Plus, when you spend time making sure you're a whole, you have a whole bunch more to give. 

When you were single and in solitude, you weren't incomplete or missing anything. :) Your partner complements you, they don't complete you. 

When you realize that, It can be a truly liberating experience! So much weight is lifted off your shoulders when you realize you don't have to complete another human being! That's a whole lot of pressure. You're not responsible for all of their happiness and security. You certainly will and can add to all of that for them, but it's completely unrealistic to think that you'll be able to fill every crack and void of another person. 

This is essential to having a healthy relationship that will last through those good and bad times. When something hard hits your relationship, you want to be there for them. You want them to be there for you. But you don't want to start to resent your loved one when you realize they can't fix you. Don't let your neediness take away from another person.  Make yourself strong and able to fulfill yourself so that you can get through those rough spots. Love yourself and love your partner as much as you can. 

You are worth being a whole, my friends.
