There is nothing wrong with being in a relationship, in my opinion, if you have a balanced one. If you have a good sense of equilibrium where both parties are respected and know how to have their own lives while carefully threading their lover into it, but not making them their everything. I think that’s the key to success. In every relationship you go through the honeymoon phase where you’re completely infatuated with each other, but it’s when you get out of it that’s the most important.
You get in to a lot of fights and disagreements, you start to feel like you’re being under appreciated, you talk less, they’re busy, there seems to be a pile of excuses and you just end up falling out of love. It’s the people that work hard to settle out their petty fights on the spot, constantly appreciate each other for the small things, try to keep each other in their lives equally that have a successful relationship, and I think I’ve achieved that.
I looked up to him. He held my gaze with his icy stare. Suddenly, I can’t move. My breath is caught up in my throat. Slowly, he reached out and took my hands in his. I was expecting warmth to spread throughout my body, but I was wrong. His hands were as cold as his eyes. Like snowflakes. I couldn’t dare to let go.
He might break if I do.
