I feel like I’ve known him forever.
I feel like he’s known me forever.
How did this work out?
I used to have another crush in YSA. We had gone out on one date and I thought we had a really nice time, and then he proceeded to not give me the time of day. It was really difficult. I mean, this wasn’t the first time in my life that I had feelings for someone who didn’t have feelings for me, but … that feeling of unrequited love never gets any easier, no matter how many times you’ve been through it.
I kept praying about it. One time, I prayed, “I’m such a silly girl. Holding onto hope when it’s not even there. I’m so heartbroken.”
And Heavenly Father answered, “Daughter, your hope and optimism is to be cherished. It’s such a rarity in this world. I will not leave you comfortless for long. Do not give up hope.”
This is just another example of interpreting personal revelation incorrectly. I took this to mean not to give up hope on my old crush. But, I think I now know what Heavenly Father was trying to tell me.
Do not give up hope.
Maybe I kept going to YSA activities because I was hoping something would spark between me and my crush. But what ended up happening was something that was generally unexpected: I started falling for someone else.
I believe that was God’s message to me. Keep on keeping on. Don’t give up. Keep coming to activities. Continue being righteous. Don’t give up. There is love for you. I will not leave you comfortless. Look around you. Don’t give up.
My guy and I … I can’t imagine ever liking anyone else but him. He have such this firm feeling that he is perfect for me. He brings out so much good in me. I can only hope I try to bring out the good in him.
Everyday, I give him another little piece of my heart. I was going to say, ‘he steals a little piece of my heart,’ but that’s not true. He asks for it, and I willingly provide. I trust him, he trusts me. What else could I ask for?
