I asked myself, Had I ever, even once, been happy while with her? Had I ever once enjoyed her company while lying on the couch or working on my laptop, while she was just there?..the comfortable silences? Of course I had. And if I had done it once, I will overlook the sad days, the fights, the broken pieces, I will mend them with her. I figured, if I could build on working for our relationship, and not just walking away or giving up when the heat is too much, if I could build on those so many good days we have had together, the positives alone, maybe I could do that even for the most of my life…and that is what I have been doing, and will continue to do, because this woman is worth fighting for.
I will be back.
