Don’t invite them into your life if they are inconsistently in love. Love is anything but inconsistent. It is not a faucet you can turn on and off, it is a constant. And sure there are bad days and off days, days where everything they do is annoying but you find yourself smiling anyway. You are not Halley’s Comet, you are to be treated like you are precious and rare every day of your life, not every so often, not when they feel like it or when they’ve had a good day, but every single day. And to accept anything less is a terrible injustice to yourself.
You are a woman. Skin and bones, veins and nerves, hair and sweat. You are not made of metaphors. Not apologies, not excuses.
