People don’t discuss the effort it takes to choose one another EVERY DAY. Like… even on the days when sweet words and warm embraces have vacated and left cold shoulders and silent treatments behind. On the days when you question “what is the point?” or “why am I here?” On the days when you cannot recognize nor stomach to look at your partner because how you feel, in that moment, is simply disgusted.
You’ve taught me how to love beyond “those days”. How to grab the next day and push forward because ultimately, you’re going to have “those days” with anyone you’re with. The trick is establishing whether or not the one you’re with is worth the true dedication is takes to establish forever.
