Dear future love of my life
Im sorry I do not need you. This is a terrible start into this declaration of love, and I apologize for it, profoundly.
But it is the truth.
I do not need you, my life is full, of family and friends, hobbies, cats, a job I love, dreams and life. I do not have any personal drama I need to be saved from. Sometimes I find myself in the middle of other people’s drama, and since I care so much, it affects me. Maybe you could be my shield every once in a while, I would like that.
Yet I do not need to be rescued, I am no princess. Though I am occasionally known to wear dresses, more often you do find me in pullovers with my cats’ fur on top. Do not mistake me for one, please. I am no fairy tale character. Life is more complicated than a fairytale, I’m afraid. Let us write our own story, I say.
I’d rather be a warrior than a princess, that has always been clear to me. Warriors are active, steadfast, down to earth. I do not want to fight with you, however. Rather alongside you. Let us fight everyday life and its challenges, elderly parents and their worries, annoying days at work, paperwork, sleepless nights and exhausting days. Let us fight these with humour, a glass of wine, some music snd dancing through our flat. Let us ignore these and just be us.
Or if that image is not attractive, I’d rather be your partner in crime. Let us plan new adventures together, book overly expensive flights to dream destinations, research forgotten treasures, sleep in cheap hotel rooms and wake up next to each other in the dark and turn to each other, wherever we go.
Princesses and warriors and criminals aside, I’d rather be your best friend, finally. Let us tell each other what’s on our minds and in our hearts, let us annoy each other with our peculiar but endearing habits. Let us talk to each other and never stop. Let us believe in each other like only friends do. Let us push each other further than we’d alone go and cheer each other on in our endeavours. Be you absolutely and don’t ever hide from me, please, and I won’t put up walls either.
Let me be me with you. I will give you no less. All of me. And you. For us.
P.S.: Not so little, after all… 😉
