and having the same friendships and opportunities

anonymous asked:

I've been in an open / off and on relationship for 3 years... I'm finally starting to feel like letting go. I desperately wanted to marry this person but they just don't feel the same way. Some day I want to have a life partner. How do I move on?

If you’ve been clinging to the past for a while and now feel you’ve missed out, shift the focus to everything you’ve gained. Maybe you’ve built great friendships or made great progress in understanding yourself better.

When you focus on the positive, it’s easier to move on because you’ll feel empowered and not victimized (by your ex, by yourself, or by time.) Whatever happened in the past, it prepared you for now—and now is full of opportunities for growth, peace, and happiness.

Its 3:15am & honestly, I feel shitty. Idk, I was a lot happier earlier but I'm not really rn. I feel this way bc I just really miss having a best friend. I had one, but it was a toxic friendship. I'm glad I got away from that, but I still miss having someone who will just listen to me talk about the things I love, ya know? It might sound selfish, but I wish I had someone who willingly listened to me, not just me choosing to share the things I love. I love hearing other people talk about pt 1

Pt 2. To people talk about the things they love. I like asking them about them. I just wish I still had someone to do the same for me. When I do get the opportunity to talk about the things I love, I feel like I talk too much & annoy the other person. Like rn, I told one of my friends my whole love on this thing from my past & I got excited & carried away with talking about it & I feel like I annoyed them. Ah, I’m so weird & confusing. ~Homeskillet anon

oh my god homeskillet I’m so sorry 

I hope you know that you can come to me anytime and talk about your day all you want. I’m always happy to listen and I love hearing people talk about their lives. I know how it feels to not have a friend or anyone there when you need someone and it’s one of the worst feelings in the world. I’m so sorry you’re having to go through that but just know that I’m always here, okay?

    She was intrigued at the creativity and thoughtfulness he had managed to set up just for her. The trail of printed notes he left behind along with a small gift. Marinette smiled picking up the latest note that had a rose attached to it, while the last one had an intricate piece of chocolate wrapped in finely decorated wrapping. It all gave her an inkling that the trail would certainly most lead to the one person she sought to see. They had gotten closer these last few months and each time spent meant something to her. Somehow maybe he was feeling the same but she didn’t want to think too much into it without falling into disappointment. She’d rather enjoy what they have without placing a label upon it.

Each time spent together gave the other an opportunity to get closer to another and grow their friendship. Marinette wouldn’t have it any other way. She valued his presence and there was no helping that her feelings exceeded the boundaries of friendship. A part of her hoped he felt just as strongly one day. Sometimes there were hints of his feelings but maybe that was just wishful thinking because he was such a thoughtful and nice person. The way sometimes the skin of his arm would accidentally brush against hers when standing right next to the to other or the time they spent cuddled and tangled in each other’s arms that both didn’t want to leave the other’s side. Those moments making her blush all over from thinking about them.

Finally, she came across what looked like a last printed note with another rose and place to meet up at the music room. Slowly opening the door, Marinette stepped inside unaware on what to expect but likely hoping to see and thank the person who left behind these wonderful gifts for her. She turned her head at hearing a familiar voice and smiled at the nickname used.

“Adrien. Hey. You did all this? I’m just….it’s all so great and sweet of you.”

It had surprised her as he stepped closer towards her with a bundle of the same roses he had initially gifted her on their very first date. At that exact moment, her heart skipped a beat, stomach fluttering with that butterfly feel, as well as her mind racing on what was going to happen next.

She soon felt the intensity of his vivid, green eyes looking deeply into her blue ones making her heart race a bit faster. The scavenger hunt he created for her with all those sweet notes with roses and chocolates attached meant something more. It was at this moment, Marinette was in awe of everything as his warm lips made contact  on the skin of her cheek suddenly, as he handed the bouquet of flowers to her. She took them graciously and soon felt the warmth of his hand reach out to hold hers. His green eyes again gazing at her deeply and confidently knowing there was something on his mind. As soon as the words left his lips, her blue eyes widened, but a smiled graced her features.

“Adrien I would love to go out with you, but are you asking as friends or…..something else?” 

She bit her lip, possibly regretting what was said, but fearful on his response. Here he was asking her out, but haven’t they hung out on one or more occasions? How was this any different? Many questions were plaguing her mind at that exact second.
