And i use Jim only because i just got finished watching the office.
Not that i really want an identical Jim Halpert, but i would enjoy a friend like him.
The reason i pose a question in my title, is this:
I have no problem standing on my own.
No problem, going to a wedding without a date,
A party with no dancing partner,
The movies with no one to cling to,
and I’ve even adjusted to going to the mall and shopping by myself too.
Now, this may sound slightly depressing or fairly stupid but hear me out.
I’m ok with doing these things alone.
I’m sure a few years ago I wouldn’t feel complete if I didn’t have a guy on my arm to do these things with, but I’ve learned to love myself without needing reassurance of who I am by the title of my Status on myspace.
I love who I am and everything that comes along with me. I’m not perfect, which has been the hardest thing to swallow, but I’m human and every mistake I make gets me closer to who I want to be, by learning from it.
Now a couple months ago I would not be able to tell you any of this but now I can confidently say:
I’m Ready to
Trust someone with my heart
Take a chance on love (godliest form)
Hold someone’s hand and not feel convicted
Dance with someone and not care whose looking
Go see a horror movie and cling to someone’s sweatshirt on the scary parts
Buy matching shoes just for the sake of “being cute”
Support someone’s dreams and visions and have them support mine in return
Be an open ear to comfort when comfort is needed
A hug when words won’t do
Bake someone’s favorite cookies just to make them feel special
Compliment someone’s strengths and weaknesses
Talk things out instead of walking out
