As someone who just broke up with his girlfriend about four hours ago, this was both comforting and stirring for me. Similiar reasons, too. incompatibility. People say opposites attract, and I cannot but agree, but not all opposites are meant for each other. I was a quiet and quite introverted; she was extroverted. I couldn’t handle it, and neither could she.
I learned an exorbitant amount from my relationship, and can’t even remember what it was like before being in a relationship. All I know is that I must start over and grow as a person, on my own this time, without a companion by my side. Until I find another one, of course.
Yet I don’t want to give up ‘Relationship Things”. That would be a waste. I can’t let that time go to waste, after all, I only have such a limited amount of time on this earth. There is so much I discovered from my relationship that I would be foolish not to take up.
When I’m picking up my own bits on New Years Eve tonight, I won’t try to rediscover what I liked before I listened to Tove Lo or went searching for old vinyl records in a run-down salvation army. Instead, I think i’ll embrace it and cherish the moments spent finicking around creating a vinyl copy for a friend.
That reminds me, I should probably change my profile picture.
