When You Finally Realize They Aren’t Worth It

Originally posted on Thought Catalog:

Maybe you met someone new. Or maybe, this person has always been a part of your life. You spend every single day talking to them, or seeing them. Maybe it’s a friend or maybe it’s a significant other.

You’re not sure if the signs have always been there, but one day you start to notice them. Being the kind of person who likes to give people the benefit of the doubt, you push those signs under the rug.

You put more effort and time into this relationship than they do. They can call you in the middle of the night for anything, or any time of the day, and you will drop everything you’re doing to be there for them. Maybe your car breaks down and you need a ride…but they don’t answer there phone. Maybe you’ve had a rough day at work and you just need to talk…but they’re…

  1. You have a lot of opinions about a lot of things, and you just can’t keep them to yourself.
  2. You mean what you say and say what you mean – none of that Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus nonsense.
  3. You never back-down from an argument. You’re not always starting them but you sure as hell finish them when necessary.
  4. You have really high standards for the people you choose to be around and you’re not afraid to leave behind those who cannot meet it.
  5. You’ve got even higher standards for any person who wants to be with you, romantically.

90s Nostaligia

Being a true blue 90s child, I wanted to be Posh Spice and Barbie girl, but for the longest time, my most favorite song has been by the gorgeous Shania Twain… I still remember the day when we kept pausing the cassette player after each line trying to learn the lyrics to all her songs, especially this one..

Feeling nostalgic and sassy!!! Enjoy!

Until my next post..

When You Think Distance Will Make Him Miss You

I guess I was being selfish when I’d asked for some. Like I thought distance could be some form of weapon I could defend myself with against you, against all the hurt you could cause.

I needed to feel like my emotions weren’t hitched onto something that could collapse in a moment; I needed to feel like I could be pressed up against your side yet still be an independent; and I needed for you to miss me while I was gone.

I needed for distance to whisper in your ear when I wasn’t at the dinner table, and our friends asked where I’d been. I needed for distance to remind you to check your phone when my ‘good morning’ texts (with a smiley) left a vacant space on your screen.

And while this is such a cautious way to walk through life, while instead I could be wildly sprinting, the wild sprint has made me fall and trip before, and the scrapes and burns were painful. So painful that it takes a while to try and run that fast again. So I walk, and I walk carefully noticing my surroundings because I worry if I were to ever fall that hard again, I might not be able to get back up.

I’m guarded because I’m scared…
