On the flipside, when I am spending time with my significant other, they get all of me. The get the madly-in-love me, the full-attention me, the always-on-your-side me, the I-would-do-anything-for-you me, the you-are-the-most-important-person-in-the-world-to-me me, the I-love-you-like-the-rain me.
Okay, so official response.

Responding here because this is my favourite part of your whole post. (I can never get enough of these hyphenated adjectival phrases.)

Heath,
if you give someone else all of your heart,
what’s left for you?

I’m sorry you’re in a place where you can’t feel safe as you fall; 
I’m delighted that you’ve recognised that, and you’re protecting your heart for now. It’s a good one. Look after it, okay?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
