More and more each day we discover ourselves behaving and liking the opposites of things. If I like the door closed, she likes it open; if a room is too hot for her, it’s too cold for me; if the sink is already full of dirty dishes, well, I wash them.
I love how Jaycelle and I meet in the middle.
Our relationship survives pleasantly because of our willingness to compromise.
At first I really didn’t understand my father every time he told me that relationships are “give and take”. This was his advice whenever I would come up to him with a bruised heart.
And so I learned – love is when you come out of a wreckage scathed but alive and stronger – ready to go through it all again with that person.
