They'll always have your back.
Part of what makes us who we are is the combination of people who we keep in our lives, also known as the forever people. These are the people who, no matter what happens, are always there and have our backs.
It’s a wonderful feeling knowing that no matter what you do or mistakes you may make, your forever person will always be there supporting you. The relationship with a forever person is very special but sadly not everyone has one.
Sometimes when you meet someone, you know right away that they’ll always be in your life; other times, they earn that special place with their unconditional love and support.
I have friends from various areas of my life — friends from jobs I no longer work at, schools I no longer attend and projects that were completed long ago. The circumstances of how we met don’t exist any longer but the friendship remains.
I like having people that have seen me through the good, bad, and weird times. It’s as if we have a shorthand, and I like not having to explain why something reminds me of something else. They know already as they’ve been witnesses to my life.
It takes a special person to accept you for who you are, someone who will allow you to be open about the messy, unflattering sides to your personality.
Generally, if someone is a forever person for you, you are their forever person, too. There’s an unspoken agreement that you’ll return the favor and be there for them when they need it.
We all have different needs when it comes to the forever person in our lives, and what works for you might not work for others. It can be difficult to know the combination of characteristics that works best for you, but astrology can help.
Here’s what you need in a forever person, according to your zodiac sign.
You need someone who can keep up with you and matches your energy and enthusiasm. They challenge you to become a better person but don't hold it against you when you fail. In fact, they show you how your failures are actually triumphs and help get you back on your feet when you've been beaten down by life. They know you're competitive and that you tend to act without thinking things through beforehand, and they don't judge you.
Your forever person makes you feel safe, warm, and secure. The both of you can be completely yourselves when with each other. You enjoy each other's company, no matter if it's binging on Netflix or going out to a fancy dinner. Your forever person knows what you need to relax and how to pamper you.
You have the best communication with your forever person, even when you're not talking. They seem to understand not only what you say verbally or physically, but what your heart says. You tell each other everything. You're honest, even if it means one of you will be hurt in the process. You're more honest with them than you are with anyone else in your life.
It doesn't come easily to you, but you're able to show your vulnerabilities to your forever person. By being exposed to them, you take the chance of getting hurt, but they've never betrayed you in the past and you trust that they won't in the future. Your forever person is understanding, compassionate with you, and is in awe of your strength. They know what you've been through and they admire you for not allowing the past to turn you bitter and cold.
Because of the presence of the forever person in your life, you both have become stronger, healthier, and happier individuals. Your forever person constantly pushes and inspires you, and challenges you to live the biggest and best life you can.
There's no shrinking back from problems with your forever person standing with you. There are no obstacles that can't be destroyed nor are there any setbacks that can discourage you. No matter what happens, your forever person will propel you to your personal and professional heights.
Your forever person can see past the barriers you put up and accept you for all your quirks and idiosyncrasies. They seem to find your eccentricities charming and lovable, and you feel safe in the knowledge that they'll never judge you for being who you are.
Your forever person is very different than you, but for some reason, the two of you just click. You're peanut butter and banana — no one knows why your relationship works but it just does. Your forever person is patient when you take an extra-long time to decide on something and they don't make you tense with unnecessary conflict. The thing that cements the two of you together is that they, like you, have an unwavering sense of justice.
You and forever person have been some very dark times together and yet they're still here in your life. They have seen you at your worst and still have the ability to see the beauty that you possess. You almost welcome the bad times and challenges as they just make your relationship even stronger.
Your forever person gets you, and you share a sometimes bizarre and off-beat sense of humor. They're the only one that you'd even consider settling down with because you know they'd never take away your freedom. They're your equal and they make you more charismatic, charming, and compelling.
You and your forever person share the same values, and they understand the importance of home, family, and having a strong financial foundation. They don't give you grief when you choose responsibility or spontaneity for they understand that it's ingrained in your DNA to be responsible, reliable, and thinking of the future.
Before your forever person came into your life, you were afraid to show the sometimes quirky and off-beat personality you have, but now you can let the real you out. You know that they love every part of you and consider you unique and beautiful — you, in turn, feel appreciated and treasured.
Your forever person isn't just your patron of the arts, they support you and spur you on to use your creativity to follow your dreams. When you picture the future, they're always in it and you trust them with everything.
