I do this all the time. With my husband, our children, a close relative, a friend. Sometimes I just randomly get an incredible overwhelming feeling and am reminded of his much I love them and how blessed I am to have them in my life!
No one compares to you. I know people always say your first love is the person you compare everyone to, but maybe they've got it all wrong. Maybe the person you compare everyone to isn't your first love, but your true love. Your soul mate.
