note to self: i’ll be there for you, always

written june 6, 2021. Photo by Kristine Cinate on Unsplash I have always looked for myself in other people. I think the idea was that they would somehow hold the pieces of me that I felt were missing. That maybe, if I wrapped my identity up in theirs enough, we would somehow make a whole person. It's not healthy to live like this, but I did it anyway — burning through relationships and searching for something I couldn't quite name. It was never enough, not to be myself, but it was never enough to latch my identity to other people, either. I got close, several times — I thought I had reached the pinnacle of self discovery. I thought I had completed myself. But in the end, relying on other people to help build yourself is never a viable way to do things. It's only recently that I've started to become comfortable with the idea of being enough, as I am, on my own. Several years ago, in this same position, I would have searched for another person to attach my identity onto,

"I have loved you with an everlasting love." -God

As I run out the door, I wanted to share this awesome quote with you (above). It's become one of my favorites. It is a verse from the Bible - somewhere in Isaiah, I believe - but I'm not sure of the reference. I just think it's amazing to think about. God, the God of the universe, loves ME with an everlasting love? One that will never pass away, never fade, never die? Wow. Now THAT is cool. :D

He loves you too with that kind of love. Don't forget that. :)

Everlasting love. It's yours.


  1. SUPER cute template! I like it better than the one I was working on. *embarrassed grin** And, you should put that quote permanently on the top of your page! :)

  2. Lol, now I see that you DO have it at the top of your page. I just like it in the purple text bettah. ;) <3

  3. Wow, amazing template! Again...I must say A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

    That is an excellent verse ~~ It is indeed wonderful to know that he has an Everlasting Love for us... so wonderful!

  4. Wow, I love your background. Like, INSANELY. :)

    Thanks sooo much for the comment! Yeah, I was BeccaTheGreat. :) I was so excited to hear from you again! :D I'm so glad you like it. :) I've really began to embrace my passion for writing and the like.

    An awesome verse. :) It's so true, we can't even imagine loving someone with an unconditional love ourselves, and so to imagine that God, the creator of heaven and earth, is going to love us with a love we can never possibly give back to him is mind-boggling.

    Thanks again for the comment, and great post (I'm following your blog now :) )
