“Falling for him wasn’t falling at all. It was walking into a house and suddenly knowing you’re home.” -R.I.D.
I read this quote and it perfectly described what meeting my husband was like.
It also made me think…
Meeting the right person doesn’t mean that there have to be fireworks (even though there may be).
When meeting someone, sometimes the excitement, fear, sadness, anger, and happiness of the relationship all combine to create extreme emotions. “Having feelings” for someone sometimes just means that you have a whole bunch of feelings about that person. I think that it can feel like passion. But that does not necessarily make for a healthy, happy relationship.
Sometimes, when you meet someone, you don’t have crazy highs and lows. You just feel safe and comfortable. You feel a joy in your heart. Everything seems like it fits together. That person becomes your partner and your support. You’re on the same page. You can see the same path in life.
You just click.
And then you start to see that there’s no place you’d rather be than with that person.
Everyone experiences love differently. Every relationship is different. But no matter what the emotions are like, how long you’ve know each other, what your pasts look like, if there were fireworks or not, if you fight or don’t, just make sure that you’re with someone who makes you feel like you’re home.
Then, put God at the center of your relationship and watch if flourish.
