you and me
Admittedly, I’d had some stressful and shitty things happen over the past few months. However, I realized within minutes of waking up that morning that I had been making a habit of being sad. I hadn’t just been reminding others that I was going to be sad that month, I had actually been ...
After I went through the break-up that almost killed me (literally!) and wrote about it to share the wisdom I extracted from the experience, I had many people contact me telling me that they had been broken up for 2-3 years and they still wait around for their ex to come back.
You were an answer that led to so many more questions but for the first time in my life I believed that everything was going to be okay. I decided I’d rather hold your hand and talk about the shapes in the clouds than worry about what was going to happen tomorrow.
And sometimes, when you have a tiring and stressful day, and your cat pukes all over your bed, or your boss is a douche troll, you give a piece of pie that isn’t the whole. Because love is giving what we can, to a partner who values our wholeness, in all its fucked-up-ness.
If you’re scared, it means that you know how chaotic my mind is right now. It means you’ve seen the insanity of my genius and -- like watching a horror film -- need to keep looking away from the gory parts while morbid curiosity keeps you in my theater.
When you meet me, you will learn about the characters in my life and myself as the protagonist. You will be introduced to my world. You will learn this right away. This is the setup to my story.
