The quality time turns into “I was working” and the consistent communication becomes “I don’t know” When does “I hate to see you leave” turn into “it hurts too much to stay?”
Maybe we’re all guilty of taking things for granted, or letting our fears stop us from taking certain chances. Maybe we think we can make love appear when it’s convenient, or maybe we don’t realize the effort required to keep a good thing good. Maybe we think happiness is something that just finds us, instead of it being something we work for and choose to have. And maybe that’s why we all get it wrong so often. It’s amazing how fast things change.
We expect love to be magical before we become magicians. Or could it be that we’re all just better breakers than builders. We’d rather have feelings we can throw away and “love” that’s disposable. You always want what’s easy and that’s why it never lasts.
You’re tired and ready to settle, but you’re so used to the chase you’re scared to stop running.
