this was a darker time for me during a new relationship. This poem is more about myself than anything else. I deal with social anxiety on day to day basis. Comfort is so hard to find when you're not sure if you've even felt it before. I have always felt that people are so critical of me, and I honestly feel like I try harder than anyone else I know. That may be a misconception on other people's part, but I feel like my heart is usually pure, when it comes to helping someone else. I tend to pull myself down in relationships because I expect too much from myself (or what I think my partner expects from me). Ultimately, that kind of thinking can destroy a relationship. Any time we place expectations, we are setting ourselves up for a disappointment, in love or in life. It is best to hope for the best and expect the worse. Those are wise words that have come from my husband, and I hope they touch upon anyone that reads this
keep on doing what you love, and have faith in God, in fate, and in in truth.
