I do believe my role as girlfriend is to be a source of comfort and support. I’m here to encourage and love and remind him just how amazing he is. It’s not my job to tell him what to do or who to be. I see him as he is and want him to be the best version of himself, for himself. I wish I could say I always felt this way. I grew up thinking being in a relationship was just finding someone you liked and who liked you back. But the way his love for me is set up, he is and has always been my biggest cheerleader. It caused me to change how I see relationships. I see it as two people, going through life together, and that when life is hard, the love they have for each other makes that hard life easy. I’ve learned that from the way he loves me. A love that I didn’t know I needed until God gave it to me. So to be a source of comfort and peace for him is the least I can do for the man that has showed me the love God wants for me.
