Every morning I wake up to the Elvis Duran show. This morning they were talking about relationships + people taking breaks. Not breaking up, just taking a “break.” They mentioned Lady Gaga + Taylor Kinney (Lancaster’s own!) taking a “break.”
A man called in + said that his wife wanted to take a break. There were kids involved. No rules, guidelines, or anything was set by the man + wife. He sounded sad, hurt, + disappointed.
If there’s anything I learned from my 9-year relationship ordeal, it’s that communication is key. Any type of relationship, friendships or romantic relationships, need good, clear communication.
Friendships + relationships take work from both sides. It’s not a one-way street.
Another thing I’ve learned is not to be afraid to tell someone how you feel. Tomorrow is never guaranteed.
With you, however, I am afraid. Very afraid.
