I'm Grecia, 18 and I am confident in who I am and I refuse to let anyone tear me down.

16.

At 16 I met the person I thought I was going to spend the rest of my life. I loved him, for so many years. After we broke up, even through one of my relationships. I never forgot about him, never did I not think of him. That was my first love, I can never forget it. He was the first man I truly loved and wanted. I used to wish that we could’ve met at a different time. When we were older. I used to wish we could have fought through it all. I guess you never forget about your first love, but I can finally saw that I love again. I was so afraid I would never love someone the way I did, but now, 5 years later I have found a man who brings out the best in me. A man who I love, a man who I want.

I always felt like my biggest mistake was letting him go. Letting go of someone I loved more than life, but I was so young. At 17, how much did I know about love? How was it that I felt absolutely every feeling towards him? How was it that he made me feel alive when I felt like I was dying? Now I look back and realize, I knew. I knew how to love. I know what love was because he loved me. And regardless of who comes and goes, that will always be first love. Thanks to him I know to not settle, I know the love I desire. I know the love I deserve.
