Until the day I die, I will always believe that you're my saving grace. Not because I needed saving from life or from myself, but saving from all of the broken pieces that trail behind me from those in my past.
We all have skeletons in the closet, but when these skeletons drown you in the scars they leave behind...how easy is it to believe that the parts of you that remain are actually worth saving?
I allowed my scars to consume my well-being and discourage every piece of me that remained. I started believing that I wasn't good enough for anyone. That I served no purpose in the department of love, and that I would never amount to anything to anyone.
Allowing my mind to be bombarded with these thoughts sent my head into a whirlwind of emotions. Emotions that filled my head with absolutely endless negative thinking and never-ending scenarios.
It wasn't until the day that I met you that I saw those thoughts for what they were — untruthful and stupid. You saved me from growing in thoughts of being worthless, never amounting to anything, and never fulfilling anyone's needs.
You proved to me that I am worth it, I am more than enough, and I am a God-given gem that anyone would be lucky to have. You saved me from believing that my past defined me.
Instead, you showed me that the past is the past and does not define who you are but it shapes you into the person you are made to be.
You have saved me from feeling that love isn't for everyone, and that love wasn't destined to find me.You are teaching me to believe that love exists and love is for me.
My love would not exist without you, my saving grace. You saved me.
