While I was on vacation this past week, I came to a realization: I don’t know how love works.
Of course, I have an idea of what relationships are and should be from all the books I’ve read, but how they start in the first place is still somewhat of a mystery. The only love I’ve experienced is that of friendship and admiration: I have some really good friends that I consider family, and I have people – teachers and professors among them, of course – that I look up to.
I’d like to be in a relationship someday, and I have a feeling that I will. I’ve come close, but it hasn’t worked out yet. I can see myself at least being married at some point in the future.
It’s one thing to fall in love – and that I’ve had experience with. But how do people keep a relationship going? All I’ve really known is how relationships can fall apart. And that is not pretty at all. It’s something that no one should ever have to go through.
However, I do have faith that everything will fall into place someday. I can achieve all of my goals and have everything I want. If a relationship is meant to happen, it will. And I’ll figure it out from there.
When Will I Be Loved?
