I got this journal a month ago with the express intention of writing everyday for 300 days. Today was the first time I wrote in it, and I intend to share some of my thoughts in this journal with you. This will be a weekly feature - on Tuesdays - and you're welcome to add your own thoughts in the comments every week :)
Today's topic - What is the best thing about being either single or partnered (whichever you are right now?)
The best thing about being partnered/married is knowing that someone who isn't/wasn't a part of my family loves me so much - almost unconditionally. I say 'almost' because even though Cakes swears I could never do anything to lose his love, I am a realist and I am pretty sure there are one or two things I could do that would make him decide it's not worth it. That being said though, Cakes loves me and it feels oh-so-good.
Through the fights, my not-so-good characteristics and downright nastiness at times, he loves me in spite of it all. My family has no choice but to love me; I expect my friends to love me (because I love them :p), and this guy came along and loved me for no reason.
In the early days, I would roll my eyes when he said he loved me, because "Dude, we haven't known each other long enough." He would still say it over and over, not minding my pessimism. He still says it, in the middle of our Berry and Cakes World Wars. It can be annoying when all I want to do is hold on to my grudge for an extra hour or week.
So what's the best thing about being married? Knowing that someone loves you when they really don't have to.
And the next best thing is having guilt-free sex. BUAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Nah, I'm kidding.
Actually, I'm not.
What's the best thing about your current situation?
