... She has been through so much pain that for her to still open up to you takes almost everything out of her. Yet, she'll do it for you.
... She knows what it's like to be unloved and she never ever wants you to feel that way. Her love is so powerful that even if you feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders, you won't break.
... She will prioritize you over herself so that you know that you're important to her. She would drop everything for you because she knows you wouldn't ask unless you really needed it. She feels your sincerity in her heart.
... Her love for you will keep her fighting to protect you. For her, it's the two of you against the world.
... She understands that you have dreams and wants to support you in any way she can. She knows how hard you've worked to get where you are and won't let anything or anyone render that effort vain.
... She will ensure that you never feel lonely in your relationship. She knows what it's like to feel disconnected from someone who she loves so she will make sure that she is with you all the way, emotionally and physically.
... She will never ask you to choose between her and those you love. Every person in your life is important and she gets that.
... She wouldn't ask you to change anything about yourself. She fell in love with you just the way you are which is why she doesn't want you to have to wear a mask around her.
... She will give you the space you need for yourself. Being suffocated by expectations is something she's not a stranger to and that is why she knows you need to be on your own sometimes to just relax.
... She will inspire you to become the best version of you. There's just something about her encouragement and total love for you that will make you feel like wanting to become a better person, not just for her, but yourself.
... She knows what you want to say even when you can't find the words sometimes because she knows you better than you know yourself. It's the reason being around her is so comfortable and why you can say things to her without uttering a word.
... She will do her best to ease your pain so that you can live unburdened. You shouldn't have to suffer through hardships and pain on your own and you won't have to. You can have faith in the fact that when she does things for you, it's in the hopes that her love will wipe away the pain.
... She will hold your heart with the utmost care. Her heart has been broken so many times before. She managed to pick up the shattered pieces on her own and she alone knows the crushing blackness of having to put it back together. You won't ever experience it because she will treat your heart the way hers has never been - with respect and all-encompassing love.
But through all of this, you should know that the moment you hurt this woman who has done nothing but unconditionally love you, you will have lost possibly the best thing to have ever happened to you. Just because she is willing to give her all for you doesn't mean that she won't expect the same from you. Granted, her patience will be awe-inspiring but the moment she knows you aren't as invested in this relationship as she is, she won't hesitate to leave. She knows she deserves better and she does.
