You and I have been through so many ups and downs. We've gone back and forth more times than I can count.
I have baggage. Lots. Like, if you were to take my baggage on a plane with you, let's just say it wouldn't be cheap.
I have more imperfections than I can count. I doubt myself constantly. I have things that hold me back from being the person I feel I should be for you.
I feel like you deserve better than me.
You're indecisive. You never really know what you want, and you can't make a solid decision to save your life.
You're a runner. You love me, but I can see that how much you do worries you. Every time things get too serious, you run away.
We have run into a thousand reasons to not be together.
But we've run into even more reasons to be.
When I'm not with you, it hurts. Everything about it hurts. Everything that's bright in my life becomes dim. Everything I enjoy becomes boring.
The absence of being with you truly becomes the absence of my happiness.
When you're not with me, you're thinking about being with me. From the second we aren't together, you're trying to come up with a solution so we can be.
You still tell me you love me, you still talk to me every day. You never let things change too much.
You just take away that label of a relationship that scares you so much.
Whether you see it or not, you don't ever want to fully let me go.
When we're together, we're inseparable. We are the epitome of best friends.
We don't fight. We have small arguments, and they are fixed within an hour.
We tell each other everything, there are absolutely no secrets. There's never been a single time that we couldn't count on one another.
No one can make us laugh harder than each other. No one has ever understood us the way we understand each other.
We have a respect for each other unlike we've ever had for anyone else.
We have a connection unlike either one of us has ever experienced with another human. There is quite literally not another two souls in existence that love each other more than we do.
So, I think it's time to end this back and forth game we play.
It's time we stop running from this.
I might think you deserve better than me. You might be afraid. But, at the end of the day... We make each other happy.
At the end of the day, we both know it doesn't get any better than what we have. We're perfection for one another.
We deserve a real chance to make this work.
So I say we keep our feet firmly planted this time, right next to each other.
No running away this time.
