He makes me want to be a better person. He makes me want to be the best I can be.
Why is this?
There is an article on the thoughtcatalog.com website that lists signs your relationship is making you a better person and includes the following –
You find yourself making more and more tiny compromises—about which type of movie to watch, or what time to eat dinner—without feeling at all bitter.
Your main need might just be to meet their needs. And why not? You’ve spent enough years focused entirely on number one.
Overwhelmed by gratitude, you catch yourself saying “thank you” with more enthusiasm than necessary—to people who hold open doors, compliment you, or look friendly in general. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
You want to return the Universe’s favor, so you act kindly towards everyone, even not-so-nice strangers. It takes way more than an annoying street performer who gets in your face on the subway or a rude waiter to make you angry.
You’re drunk on Love Kool-Aid and you know it, but you’re not embarrassed. You’re desperate to share the joy running through your veins.
You’re more motivated than ever to exercise and eat healthy because you have more reason than ever to live longer.
Your general outlook is incredibly positive. Bad things definitely happen, but there’s so much good in the world, too. You know this because it led you to your lover.
Really? That was not quite what I had in mind when writing this post. For me my relationship is making me a better person because I want to be a better person for him. He deserves a better person to be in his life to be his partner in life and to be his spouse, his support and his love. This is why he makes me want to be the best I can be – to be a better person. I know relationships are about 2 people and yes, I am a control freak at times and make it all about me. I am working on this, because it is not always about me or should not always be about me. I am working on this, because I want to be a better person for him.
He makes me want to be the best I can be.
Why is this?
Could it be love, devotion, dedication or commitment? Well it may be a little of all – whatever the reason, it is good for me. It is good for me because I want to be good for him. I want to be the best for him, a better person; the best I can be.
He makes me want to be the best I can be and I am a better person because of him.
