a relationship will not cure your issues, no matter how hard young adult books and films try to push that notion on us. if you have depression or bipolar or anxiety or whatever, getting into a relationship isn’t going to cure that or make it go away. person with illness + relationship = ill person in a relationship. please don’t put all of your focus on finding someone to fix you, focus on fixing yourself the right way.
No matter where the road takes us. No matter what life may bring to us.
Promise me that you will never forget about me.
Can we do cute things like go to aquariums, kiss in the rain, have cute day trips, and have really rough sex
The wait itself is a gift of grace.
You see, waiting is not only about what you will receive at the end of the wait. Waiting is about what you will become as you wait…Waiting means surrendering your glory. Waiting means submitting to Sis glory.
Waiting means understanding that you were given life and breath for the glory of another. Waiting gives you opportunity to forsake the delusion of your own glory and rest in the God of awesome glory.
Only when you do that will you find what you seek, and what you were meant to have: lasting identity, meaning, purpose, and peace in Christ. In this way waiting is much more than a burden for you to bear; it is a precious gift for you to receive with joy.
