I have always connected to lyrics and one song on the radio right now has had me singing at the top of my lungs every time it comes on. “Legends” by Kelsea Ballerini, who is a total boss babe by the way, is my go to jam right now. The lyrics in this song have really hit me right in the feels.
The lyric in this song that really hits home for me is “…I’ll always wear the crown that you gave me.” This lyric says everything I have ever thought about previous relationships wrapped up in a beautiful little line.
You’re previous relationships shape you into being the person for the person you are meant to be with. I remember after getting engaged talking with my girlfriends about my previous relationships. I remember actually being able to pinpoint things about myself that were shaped by those previous relationships. For example, I had a boyfriend in Middle School who was really into music and lyrics and that is an interest that Ryan and I share now.
Do not regret or throw away your lessons from your relationships, they are shaping you into perfection. We have all, myself included, dated one (or many) douche bags in our journey. Personally, without those difficult times I wouldn’t be the woman who is about to marry the world’s most wonderful man. The light at the end of the tunnel is real!
So in true Kanye West fashion let’s have a toast for the douche bags!
