Not only have you lost relationships and dealt with heartbreak, but you’ve experienced loving someone else. You now understand that you aren’t limited to getting just one love in this lifetime.
I can’t answer your calls without giving you parts of me. Parts of me that don’t belong to you anymore.
You are well aware that it can be exhausting to be a dedicated friend, lover, or coworker. You know better than anyone else that self care should be first priority.
I’m so tired of feeling like I want more out of this relationship than you.
I see stars in your eyes and I want to build galaxies around you.
You are trying to make better choices with the arrival of each new day. And that you hope that if not today, then someday, they are proud to call you their son or daughter. Because that is all any child wants to believe.
It’s the kind of love that I thought was just magic and amazing without any struggle. Of course to a naïve child, I didn’t see the work and effort they put into their relationship.
Listen to them. Like, really listen.
It might be unfair to say that Ben didn’t want Jubilee in the end, because she was black.
People are going to continue to ask you about your love life and they’re not going to stop. There’s not really a “getting over it” so much as a “getting used to it.” Most of the time, they mean no harm.
