listening to a lot of ed sheeran today
never thought i would miss being a teenage girl but you know today i am missing all the time i had to be alone, to explore myself, to write. i am missing hours spent listening to music and reading and creating. i miss long stretches of uninterrupted time, the freedom to be weird and roll around in my parents' backyard.
i am finding that part of adult relationships is the struggle between getting enough time alone and getting enough attention. i need both in equal measure but always seem to get too much of one or the other. where is the balance? is it in someone else or is it a matter of setting boundaries?
i feel like i have tried to set boundaries in this relationship, and they will listen for a while but always end up reverting back to type. how many chances do i give before i walk away?
