I want to be in a relationship with someone I can talk about anything and do absolutely anything with. A relationship where we don’t get tired of being in each other’s presence and get butterflies every time we kiss. Where we go on adventurous nature walks to random places by a beautiful lake or take a vacation to the beach just to hold hands while we sit in the sand watching the waves roll in. But we still love being lazy with each other and spend entire days cuddling and watch every episode of a random series. I want to fall in love with someone who will also turn out to be my best friend.
Maybe we’ll meet again one day when you’re not so broken and I’m not so jealous. Maybe one day we’ll be right for each other and it won’t be so hard for you to love me. I really hope that one day we’ll reconnect because no one has ever caught my heart in quite the same way.
But that day isn’t today. Today, you’re too broken and I’m too pushy. Today we don’t quite work out and as much as I care for you, I can’t keep pretending that we do.
So I’m saying goodbye. But maybe one day, I won’t have to.
Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.
—Mark Twain, Mark Twain: The Innocents Abroad/Roughing It
A friend is someone who dances with you in the sunlight, And walks with you in the shadows.
