It’s been a while but last night was a long time in a while since we were able to enjoy each other’s company. It seems that with so many things that weighed us both down we weren’t able to try to connect with each other without either of us flaring up.
Maybe it was ML’s advice that helped, maybe it was because I watched a romantic show for the first time in a long while.
I hope that this keeps up and that we can rebuild from here.
