A little reassurance
We all need it from time to time.
I’m not asking you to shower me with money you have to spend. I’m not asking you to buy me materialistic things. I’m not asking you to kneel down on one knee before me right now.
I’m simply asking you to talk to me. I’m asking you to share with me your feelings here and there. Is your vision of your future still the same? Am I still in it? I’m asking you to have a little bit more patience than usual because this is how it’s going to be like. I need security. I need patience from you; hell, I have patience when it comes to you.
A little communication goes a long way.
"Actually, there is a word for that. It’s love. I’m in love with her, okay? If you’re looking for the word that means caring about someone beyond all rationality and wanting them to have everything they want no matter how much it destroys you, it’s love. And when you love someone you just, you…you don’t stop, ever. Even when people roll their eyes, and call you crazy. Even then. Especially then. You just– you don’t give up. Because if I could just give up…if I could just, you know, take the whole world’s advice and– and move on and find someone else, that wouldn’t be love. That would be… that would be some other disposable thing that is not worth fighting for. But I– that is not what this is."

Anyone can have a relationship if they wanted one. The problem is, not everyone can maintain it.
You can say you want a partner, and eventually, you’ll find one. But how you plan on treating them versus how you actually treat them is a whole different story. Not everyone can stay committed and loyal. Some just want to be in a relationship for the sake of company, a companion and when they get bored of you, you get dropped and they move on with their life.
Point of this rant is… I’m not here to waste my time on someone who can’t balance the effort here. Seems like that is always going to be a problem. Or maybe I just always give too damn much all the time.
Sometimes, the key to making progress is to recognize how to take that very first step. Then you start your journey. You hope for the best and you stick with it, day in and day out. Even if you’re tired, even if you want to walk away. You don’t. Because you are a pioneer. But nobody ever said it’d be easy.
