Sadly, many people daydream their relationship into an epic love story. Don’t fantasize an alternate reality and forget the one you are in. Your partner may be with you not because they actually want to get married to you, but because your company is marginally better than being alone. My advice, ignore your heart’s storytelling and listen to your gut’s candor. If your intestines are constantly twisted with worry about your importance, then you should reconsider the time you are putting into the relationship. Every minute you spend with someone that doesn’t make you feel secure is a minute you are not spending finding someone that will. There is a shoe for every sock and an ice cube for every whisky. Don’t waste your time being barefoot and thirsty. Plus, by leaving you’ll start to rediscover who you are and find other ways to measure your self worth.
