What I didn’t know was, you weren’t the answer. You never were.
And when I met someone else, I realized it; no one else is, or ever would be the answer to my problems.
The hollowness of my heart was my own problem, and no one else’s.
When I learned that, everything became fuller. More lively. More happy.
A relationship isn’t meant to fulfill you, it’s meant to be the cherry on top of it all.
Once your flaws and perfections are learned to be embraced rather than withheld, that’s when you’re ready.
You’re ready to be more. Not just yours, but someone else’s.
And when you do this, and it’s the right relationship, you shouldn’t feel like you’re someone else. You should feel exactly yourself, and maybe even learn a little more about yourself in the process.
A relationship isn’t meant to tear you down. A relationship isn’t meant to make you second guess your decisions. It should give you a level of certainty and comfort you may’ve never attained once before.
A relationship shouldn’t consume you, it should be just a little extra to you. It’s a tie, but it shouldn’t take over your entire life. It should just be another single part of it.
A relationship should push you to be better and feel better about all aspects of life. If your relationship isn’t doing that, it isn’t a relationship.
