it’s the worst when you know you’re right but at the same time you just want her to be okay but you can’t let go of the fact that you’re right so you kind of just get into this pseudo struggle with yourself to try and win the argument but still make sure she’s okay in the end.
imagine being in a relationship while going to grad school and working two internships & a job. then try being okay and understanding when your significant other doesn’t do or does something you didn’t want or wanted them to do. they’re trying their best too. it may not look like it ‘cause you’re the one with the stack of assignments and they’re the ones with all the free time. but they’re trying their best - for two people - so you won’t have to worry about the relationship.
think of the pain that strikes their heart every time they imagine the reason you two broke up was because you let the bitterness take over. because nothing they did was “enough” anymore. because the stress outweighed whatever they were trying to do to keep you happy.
it’s a scary yet sobering thought, isn’t it? they want nothing else but for you to succeed in what you’re doing. they take it upon themselves to care for two people while you’re worrying about how much time you have left to do that one assignment. but they were ready for that. they knew what they were getting themselves into.
they’re strong. i’m strong.
