Some of y'all never died behind the eyes over the last ten years and it shows #thanksobama#10yearchallenge No but I'm fine. ⁽ᴵ'ᵐ ⁿᵒᵗ ˢᵉⁿᵈ ʰᵉˡᵖ⁾
Look, the last 10 years had some really rough patches. Rougher than I've ever had (and I'm not j̶u̶s̶t̶ talking about the bedroom ayyy). My dad died, my eldest sister is dead to me, an ex faked brain cancer to get back with me (can't blame the guy; I'm kinda worth it), got held back an entire semester because I overslept that ONE time before clinicals even though I had one of the top grades in theory (not gonna apologize for stating facts; also is why I start to get palpitations if I'm not at the hospital at LEAST 25 minutes before my shift, thanks for the PTSD Dr Johnson), and I put on hella fat pads to cushion the blows of the world (don't need them anymore; nothing hurts when you're dead inside) but hey, it's how it be sometimes nawmean 🤷♂️ ---
And in the words I only utter to the TSA when I forget to trim my stubble and end up looking vaguely middle eastern so I get 𝓇𝒶𝓃𝒹𝑜𝓂𝓁𝓎 𝓈𝒸𝓇𝑒𝑒𝓃𝑒𝒹, "sorry, that was a lot to unpack."
Perfect isn't the goal. Happy? That isn't the goal either. Communication, honesty and kindness, that's where it's at... then everything else will fall into place. We think if you try to have a perfect relationship, you're going to fail. If you expect your relationship to make you happy, you're not going to be truly happy. But, if you set out with the intention to always be open and honest with each other, and you communicate gently and with kindness, you won't need to try to be happy: you just will be. And that's as close as you can get to a "perfect" relationship. #relationshipadvice#couplegoals#happycouple
