My partner isn’t my opponent. A relationship isn’t a game. He’s on my team. He’s to be trusted. He deserves the benefits of the doubt, understanding, and honest discussion.
Sometimes it will feel hard because I don’t get to do what I like immediately but I must remember that it’s a step toward the life I want and I must persevere regardless.
Don’t wait for him to treat you better. If he doesn’t treat you well now, well, what are you doing with him? Worse, what are you doing to yourself?
We would then look into each other’s eyes, smile and say, “Our love for each other keeps us going” but deep down we knew we were living a lie, at least I did.
If you’ve been seeing him for a few weeks and realize no date has happened on the weekend, only late evenings after work through to early mornings rushing out of his place, I have some bad news for you.
We kept in touch every day, then few days apart, a few weeks and then months apart until we became strangers. We moved on with our lives because it was the only choice we had.
I hope right now you’re saying to yourself, “Hell no! It doesn’t sound good, I want a better life for myself and my family. I want to be remembered when I’m gone. I want to change and impact peoples lives!”
I was a virgin, naïve, not grasping the true meaning of love. He looked at me with fire in his eyes and a passion so intense that I thought to myself, “This must be the love everyone is gushing about”. Naturally, I fell for him, as hard as anyone could fall.
The things independent and guarded people don’t tell you are plenty, but what they most likely keep to themselves is when they need you.
I didn’t expect that very year to be full of hardship, jealousy, and misunderstanding. We were supposed to step back to that long-forgotten “friend zone” and sort things out from there.
In another life, I’ll find you before your life takes shape and you’ll find me when I’m raw in the making. We’ll find each other again despite responsibilities and ties and difficult decisions.
No one says it’s easy, but on the very bright side, I get to design a life I want to live. I get to make every little decision of where I want to go from here.
I went on dates. I met men again, being hopeful and purposeful. But as usual, I got disappointed and ended up going home crying. Modern dating is a fucking garbage bag, do you know?
Someday someone is going to love you so much you forget what it was like to be in pain. Someone is going to treat you so well you get angry you would ever settle for way less.
When a Cancer woman lets you in, she will shower you with warmth and love. She will see you and see no one else.
I’m not asking anything from you. I’m not going to bother you. I just need to ease the pain to keep on going. So, can I just be selfish for a moment and say the things I shouldn’t be saying…?
Travel makes you feel untethered; like you can come and go and know that these experiences are unveiling some new bit about yourself you didn’t know you had.
Wait for the love that doesn’t walk away when times get hard, one that is strong enough to know that love isn’t always easy and doesn’t expect it to be either.
To the boys who wanted me but didn’t have me, did you really want me or the idea of being with someone like me? How could you want me when I never showed you me?
I will disappear from your life and one day I will stop writing about you and us anyway. So, let me do it while I still can. Let me be the writer girl who fascinated you in the first place.
