"i love you for yourself
there’s a lot i could worry about. there’s always the possibility that history can repeat itself, but this is a different man i’m dealing with someone who is truly unlike the others.
sure, it’s easy to be afraid and not try it, don’t risk anything, and assume that things will be like how they were. after a couple of years things will get dull and i’ll eventually fall out of love. if i go into this thinking that will happen, of course it will. but maybe all the previous men were never the right fit for me. maybe i just needed them in my life, at the time, to help me to figure out what i truly want and need in a partner.
my head has been foggy. i’ve been in a great mood, sure, but a lot of this uncertainty is stemming from my past and analyzing everything that has failed and wondering if it will all happen again. i usually go into every relationship hoping that he is “the one” and will be very stubborn towards the end trying to prove myself that i was still right. i don’t want that to happen, i want to know when i’m wrong and trust my instinct.
i’m just waiting for my next encounter with him, which is looking to be in about a month. but i am hoping we connect on a completely new level to reassure myself that i’m doing the right thing with this man.
