Okay…so it is not an accident. But it was in the area of things that happen in relationships where there is great familiarity, relationships that have not yet progressed through the “familiarity breeds contempt” stage, and into the “the very things I used to hate the most about you now make you utterly endearing” stage.
I post this…because I have done this. Many times.
And my baby has done this a time or two as well.
And she has loved me, stood with me and for me and in me through it all…as I have with and for and in her too.
And we have emerged into a place of wonder in our oneness…and no, it is not a “get out of jail” moment that simply says nothing bad happened or no price was paid…the price was really beyond my ability to speak it.
Outsiders judge…and even people who might be in the same house are “outsiders” in a relationship of intimate commitment, and it is so gosh dang easy to pass judgment. But to love someone…at their most petty, at their worst, at their lowest…this is the real measure of love and commitment.
I am so honored and blessed that my Jane is such a one who loves…and I think she would say the same of me. Baby, I am glad we paid the price, and ended up with each other.
Now…Constance…please take a look at your own relationship in light of this article, and take the steps necessary to cherish your beloved above your preference.
And if you don’t have a relationship?
That might be a sign…
