I’m constantly amazed by how much everything has changed since high school. Though, at times, the dissonance between who I was then and who I am now is deeply unsettling. I still think about how just a year ago, I used to believe that no one would ever love me. And then I found love. I’m someone who is in a long distance relationship. I’m someone who feels so strongly about someone that I am willing to wait for two or more years to be with them. I know how lucky I am but it’s terrifying not knowing whether or not we will ever be together, whether we’ll ever have time to waste with each other because none of us has to get on a plane in a week. It leaves me breathless thinking about all of these possibilities. I don’t know what I would do without him. I feel like I’m missing a limb. How can one person make you feel this way?
