So in middle school we weren’t allowed to have any drinks aside from water but I kept sprite or the clear kool aid in a water bottle and felt like I was someone who made moonshine during the prohibition era.

Let Me Remind Myself.
It’s annoying because I get so wrapped up in the idea of receiving unconditional love. But it’s just an idea to me. I don’t think I’m fully comprehending that when someone unconditionally loves me, not only do they see my virtues and successes, but they take me for every flaw and failure. That takes time and patience.
I have so many expectations, but would I do what I ask of someone else? At this time in my life, would I be able to be there for someone with my undivided attention? Truthfully, no. I have responsibilities and obligations that need to be my first priority right now. Love is an action—it requires a magnitude of dedication and commitment.
I’m just not ready. Not today or tomorrow, but eventually I will be…when that day comes, I’ll know myself well enough and my identity will not be based on who I’m dating.
