We simply were not meant to outrun that summer.
Will a sexual relationship always trump a platonic one?
There’s no use crying over a spilled vodka soda. It’s not even going to stain.
The warmth and satisfaction that comes from finishing a serious, emotionally-draining, and vulnerable conversation—especially late at night and especially if not pre-planned.
It hurts because you thought you’d be there for them, too, but you can’t.
Love is about sitting on opposite ends of the couch, on separate laptops, and feeling completely comfortable in the silence.
Distance and time difference seems so petty in comparison with everything that holds us together.
Whether it’s a job move, a location change, or a relationship change – these people are still there. Sometimes that constant is what you need to keep sane. When my husband passed – I was taken care of by many amazing people – but in the dark of night when I was ultimately alone, I was able to reach out to those I knew had gone through the same thing. It saved me.
Even when life gets complicated, true friendship remains.
There wasn’t a party, friend or night out that compared to waking up next to someone who chose me every day.
