sacrifice

"He saved my life mom. Stiles saved me."--Lydia Martin

The way he looked at her when he thought he lost her.

The pain in her eyes when she thought she could lose him.

How he would sacrifice himself for her without question.

The way she looked at him when she woke up and realized that he saved her. She couldn’t take her eyes off of him.

How much they love each other. How much they need each other.

How they can’t live without each other.

Stiles has been with other girls but he has always come back to Lydia.

Lydia has loved other guys, but it has never lasted. Stiles has always been there for her.

5x16 did not disappoint. Sure the hellhound and the bashee have a supernatural connection…

…but Stiles and Lydia are soulmates. He is completely in love with her, and I think she’s starting to feel the same way.

They haven’t had a *real* kiss or shown their feelings to each other, but anyone with eyes can see their connection.

No matter what, Stiles and Lydia are always working together or saving each other. Their love is unconditional, and that’s the best kind.❤️

Relationships from the eyes of a 16 year old

What does it mean to be in a relationship? 

To some, being in a relationship means kissing and cuddling all the time, and flaunting how in love they are. I’ll admit, kissing and cuddling is nice. It’s very nice. But to me, that is not what a relationship is at all.

To me, being in a relationship is being in love with someone’s laugh, or smile, or simply their presence. 

Being in a relationship is about sharing things that make you happy with them, and it’s about learning what makes them happy. Even if what they like isn’t what you like, being in a relationship is just respecting what that person likes, and being okay with it because it makes them happy. 

Being in a relationship is about sacrifice. 

Being in a relationship is about trust, and feeling comfortable enough to completely be yourself around this person. 

When you’re in a relationship with someone, you should not feel threatened by other people. You should not feel like you are a bother to them. You should be okay with letting your guard down. It’s scary, I know. Trust me, I really do understand. But being utterly in love is so amazing. It’s about holding hands in the car, and sacrificing Burger King because he/she wants chick-fil-a, and it’s about giving up a few minutes out of your day to do something that ensures that that person is happy. Just try. Just try to make that person happy. It isn’t hard, and if it is, you’re probably with the wrong person. 

I am in love. Saying that a 16 year old cannot be in love is dumb, in my humble opinion. Yes I am young, but I do know what love is, and I feel it very strongly every single day. He is my very best friend. He makes sacrifices for me, and I make sacrifices for him. But I am certainly afraid I can’t give him everything he wants. I know he won’t leave because of it, but it doesn’t make it any easier. 

I know he will never read this. I don’t plan to ever tell him about it because it would be pointless, but if he does find himself reading it some day, I want him to know that I love him. And I thank him for finally taking the time out of his day to read my mind… literally. And I want him to know that I am sorry for all the times, past, present, and future, that I can’t be everything he deserves. And I want to thank him for choking down chick-fil-a week after week when he really wants a burger. 

I am aware that this is all over the place, and parts of it are quite contradictory. Incidentally, I am feeling many things all at once.
