My desires in a relationship have changed over time.
I no longer want someone who promises to always love me and never leave me,
I need someone who understands that life happens and sometimes things don’t work out.
I don’t want someone who sugar coats things and never gets angry with me,
I need someone to tell me how it really is and put me in my place.
I need to be able to go five hours without talking to you and not feel lost or incomplete.
I am complete without you.
But with you, I want to be so much better.
I want to be stronger with you.
I want us to grow together and help each other grow individually.
I don’t need you, but I really want you.
And this may not work out, but the fact that you understand all of this and this is how our relationship works, makes me think we’ve got a pretty good shot.

I am speaking to you, writing to you, to let you know that you are not alone.
To let you know that I, too, feel empty at times no matter how many blessings I have received.
No matter how good it's been.
I don't know what it is that is meant to fill this void, this starved heart.
At times, I feel like I am spiralling down this dark well to only greet the ocean below, one I know I am not suitable for.
I don't have the strength to swim.
I am exhausted from trying to figure things out, from trying to live up to what others want me to be.
So you're not alone, you never were, not physically, emotionally or spiritually.
You have people here with you who care.
People who are willing to give you your space when you are trying to figure out the stars in your head, and that's a blessing whether you know it or not.
You are never quite alone no matter how far you go and you should never regret opening up to people who know what it's like to be in your shoes.

“And kid, you’ve got to love yourself.
You’ve got to wake up at four in the morning, brew coffee, and stare at the birds drowning in the darkness of the dawn.
You’ve got to sit next to the person at the train station who’s reading your favorite book and start a conversation.
You’ve got to come home after a bad day and burn your skin from a shower.
Then you’ve got to wash all your sheets until they smell of lemon detergent you bought at the local grocery store.
You’ve got to stop taking everything so goddam personally.
You are not the moon kissing the black sky.
You’ve got to compliment someones crooked brows at an art fair and tell them that their eyes remind you of green swimming pools in mid July.
You’ve got to stop letting yourself get upset about things that won’t matter in two years.
Sleep in on Saturday mornings and wake yourself up early on Sunday.
You’ve got to stop over thinking why he stopped caring about you over six months ago.
You’ve got to forgive her for what she said against you in high school.
You’ve got to stop asking everyone for their opinions.
You’ve got to stop asking yourself “did I deserve this/ why me?”
Let it go.
Love yourself, kiddo.
You’ve got to love yourself.”
