It’s not about the labels or becoming official. It’s about getting to know someone well enough to develop genuine feelings for them. It’s about being understanding and forgiving when situations are at their worst. It’s about loving someone, not for what they have to offer but who they are. It’s never about blaming your significant other for not treating you like how you want to be treated, it’s about how hard they try to keep you around.
Couples always talk about their future. How they will get married, what they’ll name their kids, and how many kids they’ll have. They make promises for the future, they only care for the future. Think about the present first. Without it, there’s no future. If you want to be together forever, make it happen.
My mom carried me for nine months. She felt sick for those months with nausea, then she watched her feet swell & her skin stretch. She teared. She struggled to climb stairs, she got breathless quickly and she even suffered many sleepless nights. She then went through excruciating pain to bring me into this world. Then, she became my nurse, my chef, my maid, my chauffeur, my biggest fan, my teacher & my best friend. She's struggled for me, cried over me, hoped the best for me and prayed for me. Most of us take our mom for granted. Reblog if you love your mom more than anything else in the world ♥
“See, this is precisely what I totally fucking hate about relationships. Attachment. You don’t belong to yourself anymore. You’re sharing with somebody else. So when they’re not there, a part of you fades out with them.”—Naomi Campbell, Skins - The Novel (via headlikeawhore)
