a letter to the past us:
be happy; forget about all the outside problems and just be happy. tell each other everything; don’t leave a single thing out. hold each other’s hands; it’s a way of saying ‘i love you’ without having to actually say it. love with every fiber of your body; show the other person that you appreciate them and are grateful to have them in your life. there will be days when you won’t talk to one another, that’s okay. when you do talk again, tell the person what they missed, and that their absence was unbearable. when problems arise, talk about them; how you felt, how to solve them, and how you’re not going to leave. don’t take anything for granted; appreciate the times you have with each other to the fullest extent. this isn’t a movie, nor is it a tv show; this is reality and sometimes it’s going to be hard. on some days, you’ll think that the pain is intolerable, you’ll think that the damage is irreversible, but i promise, you guys will get through it because your love is stronger than either of you will ever understand. smile at one another; this shows that you enjoy the other’s presence. laugh at each other’s jokes, even if they’re not funny, and believe me, neither of you are comedians. sing at the top of your lungs; blast your music in the car and sing along with each other. never take each other for granted; just because you guys forgave each other doesn’t mean it’s okay to do it again. just love each other because that’s all you can do; love every flaw and every imperfection just as much as you love the great things about them. and when the time comes when love is just not enough anymore, let one another go. remember all the love and all the good times, but be selfless and let him/her find happiness; let yourself find happiness. you’ll still love each other, that won’t stop, ever, but it’ll be a different kind of love; just as strong, but for different reasons.
