The Only One

When I was young, I had a lot of problems at home. I never had a close relationship with my family. I was often ignored and neglected most of the time. This caused me to isolate myself from kids my own age and had issues with socializing growing up. . As the years went by, I was faced with never having anything stable in my life for long periods of time. I always had to move from place to place and the people in my life would come and go. My family is poor and we have faced many financial problems including my college education. I’m currently struggling with even being able to attend next semester.     

The one good thing in my life came to me when I had moved to a new town in the 5th grade. He became my first friend. Ever since the day we met, he’s been a very close friend of mine. He always had given me hope in my life and made me happy. He was the one person who understood me and actually cared about me. The summer before our senior year was when we realized our feelings for one another and began to date. Having him in my life has given me the motivation to want to succeed. It feels good to have the support and love I never had as a child. He is the only person that believes in me when no one else does, not even myself at times. Things haven’t been easy for us since he goes to a different college and we don’t see one another as much as we used to but we get by. People have told me that long distance relationships never work out but I don’t think that’s the case for everyone. If it wasn't for him then I most likely would not have even graduated high school. I love him more than anyone or anything in my life. He's my other half, he completes me. I'm at my happiest whenever he's around. I feel like I can get through any hardship as long as he's in my life. One day I do want to marry him but definitely not any time soon. I want to take it slow and enjoy the relationship as time continues to move forward. I love him and there's no one else that could ever take his place in my heart.
