Mostly, I’m sorry I treated you like wanting things to be nice was small. Because I know that’s what it’s like in there. It’s this thing in your head telling you that you’re weak. That you’re small. But don’t believe it. Okay? Thats, that’s just the story it tells you. Tell yourself a different story. Cause you’re not small. Okay? You’re the biggest thing in my world.

I don’t want to be light and casual with you. I don’t want to pretend that what I feel about you is some stupid, frothy thing that doesn’t matter because it is like the axis that my world turns on. And yeah, we could talk ourselves out of it because this is scary, and hard, and maybe the world is about to end but… If it is then I want us to have something good to hold on to.
