"Every single relationship will get "boring" after you've been together for ages. Love isn't just a feeling, it's a conscious commitment; to love every day, physically and emotionally. It's real hard, it's not always laughs and smiles and fun. People tend to quit when it stops being cute. "Oh the spark is gone." No, that's not how it works. You want somebody to never give up on you and love you unconditionally? Do the same. This isn't Hollywood, this isn't romantic happy ever after bs. Love someone when you don't want to. When they're being hard to love. That's the realist stuff there is."

It’s pretty sad you can’t even go to a car wash without being sexually harassed by a random man. I’m cleaning out my car and a guy pulls up and says “are you married?” I answered no.. and this man says “keep doin what you’re doin then hun, I’ll watch you”. I said “excuse me? I am happily in a relationship though and you can leave now”. So he smirks and pulls away. HOW SICKENING. This is why females are scared to go out alone, because there are GROWN "men" like this who think saying those things to a female, especially a female they do not know, is okay. It’s not, it’s disgusting and rude. So sick to my stomach. 🤢

I thought about you a hundred million times- about how sorry I was, how much you changed my life, all the good times and the bad times played like movies in my head. I thought about you so many times that the individual streams of thought flowed into a river that constantly ran through my mind; a babbling brook of guilt that sometimes spilled out of my eyes. Ive spent so many hours trying to force these feelings of mine out of me and into the space between us, but the sounds get so lost in translation. Every song is just a single moment of bursting feeling, threaded through my vocal chords and woven into an image that takes several minutes to be seen. None of the songs are right. Like a painting of a place- the image is never the same as the real thing.I had almost forgotten the feeling you gave me. The single greatest gift I'd ever received. So unexpected and unexplainable. Feeling like I had never known my own soul, but somehow you saw it right away and pulled it straight to my surface so I could see it too. So I could show it to everyone. You did it again- the moment you spoke to me, I felt it. Your attention is like fire. It melts the whole world away.I begged you not to disappear again, knowing full well you'd say no. But I am selfish, and I asked anyway. Just so you'd know how much I missed you. Miss isn't even a strong enough word for the way I feel about being away from you. You isn't a strong enough word for what I'm missing. It's like the feeling that somewhere in another world, I didn't make those mistakes, and our whole lives were different because I never pushed you away. There's so much I want to say to you that my mind is too small to even think of it all. Instead the river will keep running. But a river has life- it is home to fish and it feeds the grass and trees on the riverbank. I know this river of feelings for you will lead me to an ocean someday. Maybe there I'll find the forgiveness I need to give myself.
