❝ Sometimes I’m terrified of my heart; of its constant hunger for whatever it is it wants. The way it stops and starts.
❝ I know that you’re tired of waiting, and you may have to wait a little while more, but she’s on her way, Ted. And she’s getting here as fast as she can.

I won’t change for you.
No matter what.
Because as soon as I accept the word “change” into our relationship
it means that I have found something wrong in myself.
can’t won’t let myself feel shamed.
I will grow with you.
I will fight for you.
I will fight for a better me.
Not a new one.
Not a trade in.
Just one that is a little healthier, repaired.
I won’t change you.
I won’t tell you that you are wrong.
I wouldn’t want you if you changed.
Just as you wouldn’t want me if I changed.
I will tell you what we can restore together.
We can mend what is too rough, too raw.
I may buy you new old shirts.
I may rearrange the furniture.
But, I won’t change you. Because you won’t change me.
You will make me grow.
Progress. Flourish. Thrive. Succeed.
And I will make you prosper.
Advance. Bloom. Burgeon.
