Some Usher-Like Confessions

The past year has been absolutely incredible and awful and beautiful and fun and sad and crazy. It’s been ultimately mind-opening, especially when it comes to my love life. I would say it’s been a bad year for love for me, because of failed relationships. But honestly, it’s been the best year for love for me because I finally know what I need and deserve in a relationship.

I’m never going to be the person that settles for someone who sort of fits the puzzle, but not quite. I’m never going to settle for someone who doesn’t love me with their whole heart. I’m never going to settle for someone who doesn’t see me and accept me for who I really am. I’m also never going to settle for an asshole (WHY do girls do this??!?!!).

I see people settling all around me. And while I feel pain, I feel empowered. It is so fucking cliche to be like “oh I’ll never settle I’m an independent woman” but, I’m a very special, complicated person. What you see is not what you get with me. I have a dark side just as a prominent as my light, happy side. I see the world very differently than most people. I’ve only met a couple of people in my life that love as deeply as I do. The person I’m meant to be with has to be this way too.

I’ve never written about my love life like this before, but I felt like it was finally time. If there’s anything I’ve learned it’s this:

Don’t make excuses for people, just accept them for who and what they are – and let them go. Freedom is accepting the truth. And once you’re free, the world is yours, and you will find your own truth.

And that’s all I have to say about love for now.

I haven’t blogged in quite some time (it’s already September- wtf?), but I’ll be back soon with a re-cap of my Italy trip! Just know that I’ve missed you all!

Till next time,

Olive xo
