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.
In the two years that I’ve been single, I’ve talked to many guys – two of which we both had a mutual interest in each other, one maybe (that’s still up for debate), + one I did go on a date with. And each and every time they fell off the face of the planet. This is not okay, guys. I am sick + tired of dealing with this crap and I certainly don’t have time for it.
It’s not respectful. If you have any respect for me and are the least bit considerate, you’d at least give me an explanation, even if it’s a little white lie to make me feel better. It’s better than going from things going well to just completely disappearing.
Read this article, guys. This sums things up pretty well.
Don’t piss me off or you’ll get the door slam. I don’t have time for people who don’t have consideration for others.
Nothing new to say
Nothing new to report ’cause the future happened yesterday
If I could tell the truth
I could make you stay
But forever seems so far away
I fell apart in your arms
For the last time
And I felt free to do what I want
Because of the things you told me
I will learn to live again
For now I’m breaking
All the things I couldn’t mend without escaping
I will learn to love again
I can’t get over you. I don’t even know what I see in you – other people don’t understand – but there’s something there that attracts me to you. It’s been a year or two since this occurred and I’ve known you for like five or six years at least and it’s only been since the last year that I’ve had these feelings for you. I don’t think there’s anything I want more in this world than to be with you. Is that crazy?
