Please Tell Me You Won’t Leave Me

trust and love in a relationship
Jeremy Wong

I choose you and I will choose you every single day of my life. I choose to love you every morning when I wake up and when the sun sets. I choose to allow you to slowly break down my walls even though trust issues will always be a part of me.

I choose to allow you to see my bad side and not fear that you’ll walk away because of it. I choose to be a dependable partner for you as you are for me. I choose to take a big leap of faith by allowing you to become an important part of my life.

I know I’m imperfect, but I believe that you wouldn’t want me any other way. I know that I cry a little too much, but there’s no one I’d rather have to comfort me other than you. I know that I often complicate your life, but you understand that it’s because I’m scared you’ll abandon me.

After every trouble that I cause in our relationship, you remind me of why I want you to be my forever partner-in-crime. For every time I try pushing you away, you pull me in a little closer. Each time my anxiety tells me that you’re walking away, you remind me that you’re not going anywhere.

I’ve had moments when I panic and tell myself that I’m done with you, but seeing you is all I need to remember why I’m staying. There are days when I allow the voices in my head convince me that you deserve more than me, but you tell me that you choose this crazy woman to call yours.

You balance out my crazy with your sanity, and there’s not a day that goes by where I don’t realize how lucky I am that you have accepted me for all my flaws. You don’t mind taking one for the team when we bicker. You won’t rest easy if we haven’t made up after an argument. You’re not one to vent out your anger on me and be okay with that.

I choose to give you my heart without fearing that you will break it on purpose. I choose to work on what we’ve created together and not abandon ship. I choose to love you even when we don’t see eye to eye. I choose to trust that we won’t turn on each other and go the other way. Through the good and the bad, you are the one I choose so please tell me that you won’t leave me. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
