SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO?
IT’S THE QUESTION GNAWING AT YOUR HEART RIGHT NOW.
Some days feel just like the beginning. You stay wrapped up like pretzels past the alarm, send an unexpected “I miss you” text, laugh yourselves into tears over dinner. Those are the days you truly feel seen and appreciated…when your closeness is like a soul-soothing balm.
But then there are the other (ever-increasing) days when you forget why you’re together. It feels like the two of you are standing on opposite sides of Mount Everest, looking up, wishing on a star that the kinks will work themselves out.
Suppressed needs and desires become constant conflicts. Criticisms get hurled across rooms and channels of communication begin to crumble. You can’t remember the last time you spent undistracted time together or you heard the words “you’re beautiful”. And before you know it, your spirit is sagging and you’re sitting amidst a kleenex-strewn floor.
Trust me, I get it. Whether miscommunication has caused your intimacy to dim or lies have started to chip away at the trust in your relationship, you’re now questioning the love that brought you and your partner together. You don’t know how much more disappointment and heartbreak you can take.
BUT IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY.
You still have a scrap of hope in your backpocket. And you could change the course of your love, if you decided together that in a world of quick splits and selfish walkouts…your relationship was the exception.
