When you sit close enough to him so that your skin brushes, he scoots away to give you space.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about sharing things with those close to you, especially when it comes to relationships, it’s don’t cut off your nose to spite your face.
You are going to wonder why the people surrounding him have no idea about the darkness hidden inside — but it’s the same reason why you felt that way at first.
You feel safe. You know everything will be okay. Because he’s there.
Love requires giving up control.
Unfortunately these expectations are unrealistic to say the least.
I finally realized that there’s a simple explanation for what I want… I just want a grown ass man.
But it’s never going to be a fit. And that space was always meant to be filled by you.
I wanted a best friend. Someone who could make me smile without trying too hard, who could make me feel beautiful without breaking a sweat, who could make me feel like enough naturally.
I knew no matter what, I would be OK. Everything would be OK.
