I’m listening to JP Saxe and Julia Michaels’ “If the World Was Ending.” It has a melancholic melody and naturally makes me bob my head because of the bass and beat. There’s a part of this song that makes me ache. It is when the lyric hits the bridge and lightly plays the following, “I know, you know, we know, we weren’t meant for each other and it’s fine.” So, why does that piece of the lyric resonate with me so much? There were points in our relationship where we were just growing in different directions and needed to take time apart from each other. We were hurting each other being together and needed time to let ourselves grow, heal, and mature. Even then, I think we innately knew we would always find our way back to each other. The lyrics to this song reminds me of the raw emotions, I “think,” we both experienced during those periods. We hit such ugly growing pains in our relationship, and a lot of that was because we basically kind of grew up together. We were high school sweethearts, then we went to college, delved into our career. We literally grew up together and we still aren’t perfect!
I try not to get too sappy but I just have to say that I love my husband so much.
It’s the weekend after Thanksgiving and you can safely assume this is a late post. I am incredibly grateful for my husband. The time(s) we took apart were so necessary for us to reflect on our childishness and the ways in which we love. Marriage is not easy but my husband is such an incredibly kind and patient person. We are extremely flawed but continuously learn from each other and try our best to be better people and individuals in our relationship. We test our limits, boundaries, pray together, love deeply, and always encourage one another to chase our dreams. Whether it’s sharing motivational conversations, talks, or creative content… we’re each other’s number 1 fan. If there is one thing that is certain, it’s that we can bring the worst and best out of each other. In our marriage we’ve tried to bring out the best in one another (thankfully), and hope for many more years of the best is to come.
Love and light,
