Relationships

I really like relationships.

I love being loved, and being known that well by one other person who stands out from the rest.

I like knowing there is someone I can turn to in times of need, who will hold me in the night and kiss me despite morning breath.

I look forward to cuddles and to the smiles of the people who love me when they see that I'm happy.

But that's not why.

Those things are nice, but they aren't what I really like in relationships.

I really like trusting someone to the extent that they can tear my life apart.

To make myself that vulnerable is hard, and I will only do it with the people that I love most.

I really like being grumpy every day because he snores and I want to beat him to death every night but I still choose to sleep next to him.

Because I choose to sleep next to him.

I really like knowing that at any moment this could stop and my world come crumbling down because one of us isn't happy.

Because it means we have the freedom to come and go as we please, but we stay.

I really like relationships because they make you freer than any other experience in the world.

Free to be you.

Free to be happy.

Free to leave.

And every choice you make has the potential to destroy you.

And every single second you spend together is worth it.

I really like relationships.
