One of the biggest reasons why I love John is his patience. I will admit that because of the walls I put up, I am not the easiest person to get to know and understand. Throughout the years, John has worked to understand and get to know me, especially during the times when I am still trying to understand myself. He has waited and allowed me to break down my walls to let him in. The kind of patience he has for me is something I will always be grateful for.
I love John because without knowing, John has become my light when my life felt dark, and my light when I felt like there was no light within me. When I look into his eyes there is this kindness in them and the rest of the world just seems to blur out and disappear. From the start, there was nothing but the feeling of comfort when I was with him. I did not have to be anyone but myself. I never felt the need to change the way I was or who I was for him to stay with me. I love John because I am my best self when I am with him.
The support he has been in my life is something I never knew I needed. I have witnessed the way others do not support their significant others in what they want to do or in what they do. I have never felt that with John. He continues to support me in whatever path I want to take, in all my choices and my dreams. I love John because of how much he believes in me, even in the moments that I have doubted myself.
John wrote: Why do I love Jennil Matias Lacson? I love her because she makes me feel that I have a purpose in life. She motivates me whenever I’m feeling down and always brings me back up to my feet when I fall. I love her because she cares about me that no one ever has before. She watches me succeed and supports me in everything I do in life. She encourages me to get out of my comfort zone. She has been there for me through thick and thin. Long distance has made our relationship hard but it also made us stronger. Everytime I leave or she leaves, I get this feeling in my chest that I can’t explain. With her, I can be me. I can do the stupidest thing and she will still love me for me. Not only was she my girlfriend, now fiancé, soon to be wife, she is only my best friend. I can go to her for anything, knowing she will listen and care. After everything we have gone through not only did she stay, she still picks me.
Congratulations to the two of you. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and thank you for letting us plan your tucked away wedding..
