When Cupids Arrow Has the Right Aim, You Too Will Have the Relationship of Your Dreams

With Valentine’s Day literally just around the corner, I figured now would be a great time to talk a bit about my relationship, and how important it is to be accepted, not only with a significant other but just in general.

Whether we realize it or not, acceptance is one of the main ingredients we need to be happy in life. To be accepted by our parents, our friends, it’s all important. It is just as important to have your boyfriend or girlfriend love you just the way you are as well. I’d like to tell a few things I feel are worth mentioning about the man who stole my heart…

Last year, I had gotten to that point where I was unsure if I’d find someone who would take me as I am. People always say the best things happen right when you least expect it; I’m here to tell you, that statement is nothing but the truth. When I met my boyfriend, right from the very beginning, he let it be known he’s not judgmental in the slightest.

The wheelchair never bothered him. In fact, when I think of our life last summer my heart smiles at the memory of him carrying me up three flights of stairs to get to the third-floor apartment he had at the time. Not only would he always be determined to get me into his place, but he was willing to learn how to take the wheels off my wheelchair so it could be loaded into a vehicle, and he’d piece it together for me when we reached our destination as well. He has only continued to take great care of me. During our winter walks, he kicked snow out of the way on the sidewalk to make sure I could get through.

He offers to give me a push here and there (although I love being independent, sometimes I actually want him to)  He has always cared for me the way I’ve hoped and wished for a boyfriend to do. As cheesy as it may sound, being with him makes me feel like one of the Disney princesses who’s finally found her prince charming. I know my worth, and it makes my happiness level soar higher than its ever been, to have someone so loving in my life.

I know we all have days when we feel like we just aren’t good enough, for whatever the reason may be. He is always reassuring me that those thoughts are nothing more than, well thoughts. I might have looked at you funny if you said: “Courtney, a man will love you so much one day, he will embrace the things about you that are different, and it’ll make him love you even more.” Didn’t think I’d be able to wake up with my hair a mess and no makeup on and he’d still be telling me how beautiful I am.

This article goes to show, that as much as we may feel like we will be alone for good, it’s not true. We wonder if our flaws will get in the way of a relationship in the future, but nope. When you meet the right person, they won’t. The day you find that special person, I promise all the hurt you’ve ever experienced with relationships will seem like it was worth it because it led you to the who you were meant to be with. The one who’s finally going to treat you as you’ve deserved all along.

If you’re single this year, don’t fret. Keep reminding yourself he or she is out there, and until you cross paths with them, you can remember, you have always been enough, and don’t listen to anyone who ever says anything otherwise. It’s only a matter of time until cupids arrow finally has the right aim and you’ll have the relationship you’ve been dreaming of all along.

Courtney Cirabisi

Courtney Cirabisi is a 23 year old who lives in Michigan. She became reliant on a wheelchair for everyday mobility after she was child abused by her dad back in 1993, resulting with a spinal cord injury. She’s big on writing, acting, video editing and thrives on showing people that life doesn’t stop when you aren’t walking. Courtney knows that the mind is the most important thing a person can have, and with that knowledge she is able to confidently go about living her day to day life. She is currently working on a memoir about her life and hopes to have it out on shelves one day.
