Thank You For A Great Two Years

"When you told me you had feelings for me I was hesitant to accept it as true. I hope you know that my hesitance had nothing to do with you, but everything to do with my romantic history."
You are a lovely and supportive presence in my life. Even before we were together you were the best friend anyone could ever have. You were possibly the only good friend I had ever had.
When I met you you told me that I deserved better than what I had been getting. You helped me to leave behind the critical and negative people I used to spend time with.
You also introduced me to new friends I really click with and helped me to finally start doing the things I love again. I don't know if I'd be the creative, constantly inspired person I am today without you and I am so grateful for that.
When you told me you had feelings for me I was hesitant to accept it as true. I hope you know that my hesitance had nothing to do with you, but everything to do with my romantic history.
My first love cheated on me and broke my heart. My second love constantly put me down and I don't even have words to describe my third. I don't need to though, you've heard it all before.
I thought relationships were difficult. I thought a relationship was a constant uphill struggle. But when we got together everything changed. It felt so natural. I felt comfortable with you.
I felt like I could be myself around you. I felt like I could meet you at the door without a pound of makeup on my face. I didn't always have to look my best or dress my best as long as I always tried to be my best.
I had always heard that in a real relationship you could just be yourself, but I guess I never actually believed it before I met you.
We can go anywhere together. You get along with my friends, my family, everyone. I never get tired of talking to you, never get tired of listening to you and somehow you never get tired of me.
I rant for too long sometimes, I talk your ear off, and somehow you stick around. You've made me a better person and I am so glad to have you in my life. Happy anniversary!
