You’ve proven yourself time and time again, but this is still new and old habits die hard.
I’m the first to jump to conclusion. I can convince myself of almost anything and I’ll always take the first opportunity to run.
It’s easier to think the worst and stay guarded than give your all and fall.
I don’t know where my fear of love came from. I associate commitment with a loss of independence and my heart naturally longs for freedom.
Deep down I know that doesn’t have to be though. Healthy relationships allow each other to live their owns lives while still remaining grounded.
You never asked too much of me. You care without expectation. I love that about you.
Maybe rationalizing my fear is just another attempt at excuses. I’ll try to be a better me because you’re always giving the best of you.
