For the month of February, IOL is inviting our readers to tell us who they love and why to stand a chance of winning amazing prizes in our #MyHeart competition.
Our next winner is Nashil Kandailal, who submitted the following entry:
The Person I Love ... Karen.
Being in a long distance relationship is not easy by any means, but I would not trade this relationship with anything in the world. Nothing in my life is worth more than her, even when she is far away from me. Even though we are separated by many, many miles, my heart has never felt closer to anyone else’s heart but hers. Even when we are so far apart, I feel closer to her now more than ever. I can’t wait to see her, but no matter how far apart we are from one another, I always cherish having her in my life, no matter what the distance between us is. I constantly look forward to the moment when we are reunited once again.
I hope she know's how much she means to me. She is such an important part of my life. In fact, she is the center of my life. Everything I do is for us and I hope she knows that I am always trying to do the right thing that will make our relationship a stronger one. She has inspired me to be the best version of myself that I can possibly be and I hope that I can somehow repay her for everything that she has done for me. Without her, I would be a completely different person. She has taught me so much about life and because of her, I truly know what love is.
She is such a special person. When I think about the fact that she is in my life, I truly cannot believe how lucky I am to have found her. She is so caring, loving, and thoughtful. I know that I couldn’t have found a better person than her to live my life with. She is truly one of a kind, a diamond in the rough, a golden ticket that I am lucky to have won. I am so lucky and so grateful that she chose me.
Our love is something that is truly special and there is no other love like ours in the world. I feel as if I have won the lottery with her, someone who is so special and magical, who makes my life and my world a thousand times better just by being there. When I look at her, I know that I have truly hit the jackpot. Together, we can do so much and help each other realize our dreams because we truly have a love that is special.
Whether it is mere fate or coincidence that brought us together, it does not really matter. All I know is that we were meant to be together forever. I am made for her and she is made for me. We are a perfect match and we complement each other so well. We always bring out the best in each other and I know that even though there are billions of people in the world, I know without a doubt in my mind that she is the only person in the world for me. We are a match made in heaven and a perfect match here on Earth.
Everyone has a beautiful love story, What Makes Ours Different Is That It's Perfect.
