Let's Talk

Hey. Let's talk about our feelings, huh?

Let's talk about how I love your genuity, your capacity to care, the way you communicate. Especially the last one. I'm less good at that, but I'm working on it. I love how you talk so easily and so earnestly. I'll get there.

I'm sorry I'm not as supportive as I could be. I really do try. But, you're right, I could be better. I'm really proud of you. I tell you that the things you do are good, but I don't tell you often enough that you are good. And you truly are.

And can I tell you something? I love the simplicity we have. You know, I don't articulate myself very clearly, and I sometimes seem like I'm trying to complicate things. I'm not. I promise. Please don't be offended. If I could speak as clearly as I feel, you'd understand. Just bear with me.

You are real and gentle and human. Thank you for putting up with my humanity, too.

[This wasn't really to anyone. It's kind of to everyone. Happy Valentines Day, guys.]
