She said, “I think we should take a break.”

Ahh! The familiar pain stirs awake in my chest again.

“Why? I have always put you first. You’re the only reason I live. Then why?”

“That’s exactly…” She sounded exhausted & exasperated. 

“…Put yourself first! Go after your dreams & let me pursue mine. 

I want someone to live with me, not for me. 

This merging of identities, only takes away the space we need to breath. Get it?”

I got it alright. 

I thought I was being selfless, but I was selfish for keeping my best possible self from her. 

And I’m thankful to her for telling me the truth I needed to be told.
