I don’t know how to be in a casual relationship. It isn’t that I’m not good at it, I honest to God don’t know how. I don’t know how to not ask about how your sisters battle with eating is and how its affected you or when the last time you saw your dad? I don’t know how to glide past the hard stuff because I want to know how your soul is and what the weather is like in there. I want to cuddle and watch netflix with you but I also want to sit across from each other on the floor at three am and help each other through the little things and the big ones. I want to hear about when you were afraid you wouldn’t make it through the night and about the time you watched your older sister walk down the aisle into a new life with a new last name to erase the pain of the old one. Tell me about the time the storm scared you and the time your best friend threw you a surprise birthday party. I want to hear why you love your coffee black or why your favorite ice cream is superman. I need to hear it all because sweetheart your storm has become my peace. I will never know how to do just casual relationships and darling it’s because you and I have never been just casual.

You brave, brave thing.
One day, you’re going to
stop leaving the door open
for people who only know how
to keep leaving.

It all feels very exciting. I just wish it were happening to me.

5000letters:

but it really is so important to find people who don’t lose patience with you or get angry if you’re being irrational or insecure or downright ridiculous, it is so so necessary to be treated with gentleness from loved ones and not to be made to feel like you’re irritating or a burden

It all comes down to the last person you think of at night. That’s where your heart is

And now we’re supposed to go back to our normal lives. That’s what people do. They have these amazing experiences with another person, and then they just go home and clean the bathroom or whatever.

It is the absolute worst feeling when someone hurts you and they have no idea they’re breaking your heart into a million pieces.
