I want someone who’s kind, yet can be mean to me for the right reasons. Someone who’s hard working, yet willing to be lazy when there is nothing to do. Someone who’s confident, yet isn’t too prideful when it comes to showing how they feel. Someone spontaneous, yet willing to plan for things in the future. Someone aggressive, yet knows when the right times to be passionate are. Someone who can be clingy, but will know when it is the right time to let go. Someone who knows me, yet is willing to discover other aspects of who I become. But most of all, I want someone to love me even when I don’t deserve to be loved.
That to me, is the ultimate relationship.
we no longer talk, no longer see one another, nor acknowledge one another’s presence, it is this that keeps the memories of you and I alive. It stings; yes, I know that feeling better than anything else. Some nights, I think about the times you and I shared, and I feel it straight down to my core. But nonetheless, as much as our new lives have lead us to become strangers to one another, I’m almost thankful. Because at least I know that we no longer talk, because the love we once shared is too strong to now hold a simple conversation. It would hurt too much. Our faces are engraved into each other’s hearts, that seeing it in the flesh, might just kill us. We can’t be ideal the way I would have liked, but only because we loved each other, and there’s no denying that. You and I have lost all means of communication but for me, it’s just a reminder that everything we had was so real, so true, and so strong. It’s a bittersweet feeling.
To let go isn’t to forget, not to think about it, or ignore. It doesn’t leave feelings of anger, jealousy, or regret. Letting go isn’t about winning or losing. It’s not about pride, and its not about how you appear, and it’s not about obsessing or dwelling on the past. Letting go isnt blocking memories or thinking sad thoughts, and doesn’t leave emptiness, hurt, or sadness. It’s not about giving in or giving up. Letting go isn’t about loss and it’s not about defeat. To let go is to cherish memories, to overcome and move on. It is having an open mind in confidence for the future. Letting go is learning, experiencing, and growing. To let go is to be thankful for the experiences that made you laugh, made you cry, and made you grow. It’s about all that you have, all that you had, and all that you will soon gain. Letting go is having the courage to accept change, and the strength to keep moving. letting go is growing up. it is realizing that the heart can sometimes be the most potent remedy. To let go is to open a door, to clear a path and let yourself free.
Be fair to your significant other. Love is a two way road. Love should not be forced, nor neglected. It requires maximum effort and full dedication on both sides and if that’s not the case.. it doesn’t deserve to be called love. Love is such a fragile thing. Don’t take it for granted.
