You should not have to convince someone to want you. You should not have to settle for an “almost” when you want a “yes.” You should not have to be all-in, when someone else is still on the fence. You do not want to be stuck in a limbo with love when you could have the real thing. Your person is going to be your number one. Do not ever be someone else’s number two. Do not be the plans they will make if other plans fall through. That is not a compromise. That is someone treating you less than what you are worth. That is someone who does not deserve you. You are no one’s “maybe.” You are no one’s second choice, and no one’s fall back. You are no one’s safe bet, or convenience pick. It is too easy to forget this, especially when you feel like being someone’s alternate, someone’s almost, someone’s half-heart is the norm. It is easy to forget that there are people who want to be with you, and only you, instead of playing with the endless options. That is not a reason to compromise, you deserve to know you are worth so much more than that. You are someone’s plan A; remember that. You are someone’s definite “yes.” You are someone’s catch, but not someone who is just on the hook. You are someone’s be all and end all, instead of the one of many. Sometimes you do not know that you are someone’s first pick until you let go of being someone’s second pick.
