To My Soulmate: I Appreciate The Lessons

I am grateful to you for demonstrating to me how love is not supposed to behave. 

Love shouldn't involve being afraid to ask for my wants to be satisfied; rather, it should involvre

 It's not just about getting the bare minimum done; you also need to go above and above

Love does not consist of speculating about whether or not they would cheer me up by surprising me with flowers when I've had a rough day

rather, it consists of actually receiving those flowers on both the good days and the terrible days, simply because.

Love shouldn't involve worrying that the other person may suddenly abandon you

 but rather having the assurance that the other person will never become bored with you.

Thank you for the opportunity to learn what it means to let go of someone who does not offer me joy, who does not make me feel safe and secure
