I need to tell you about my lover. Â There’s a lot to say, multiple blog posts worth for sure. Â I’ll start with this: Â I have never loved someone in such a clear-headed way before.
I’ve talked about being addicted to a lover, swept away, even bewitched. Â Don’t get me wrong, those were some great love affairs, epic loves that I will always cherish.
So what’s different about this one? Â I described it as ‘clear-headed’ because I don’t feel foggy or love-adled or drunk on love. I’m not worried that one morning I’ll wake up with a love hangover and wonder what the hell I was thinking. Â She and I have come together as two independent people, responsible for our own monkeys, not dependent on each other for happiness, not needing the other person to change for us.
I don’t need her to be happy, but I’m definitely happier for her love in my life.
Every day she shows me another angle of herself and I fall more deeply in love. Â Every day she proves that I can trust her with the most difficult truths and she shares hers with me as well. Â There is an equality to what we are doing that lends itself to stability and balance. Â And every day it gets better.
Happy third mensaversary, sweet pea 🙂
