All that crap about loving and letting go is just that - crap. Because you don’t let go when you love someone. You hold on, as tight and as hard as you fucking can because you understand that you have a damn good thing, you have something that is so rare - precious, even - that it’s what makes some people die alone and miserable. They spend their whole lives searching for it and it’s always out of reach, but you, you have it, and you thank God that you’re one of the lucky ones. And you realize that any bullshit sentiment about letting things fall into place doesn’t equate to love, because love is about drive. Love is about waking up and making the bed without them asking you to, it’s about kissing them on the forehead instead of the mouth when you know they’re too sad to move their lips. And sometimes, it’s about making mistakes. More importantly, it’s about learning from those mistakes and dedicating yourself to never make them again. Love is about chances - as many as it takes to finally get it right, because you’ve found something that’s worth the trial and error. Love is about overcoming obstacles, even if sometimes you have to drag the other person kicking and screaming over them with you, because love is about never giving up.
