All roads lead to me.

This line is disparaging: “When we fall in love, we’re just falling in love with ourselves”.

But there’s a tinge of truth to it.

It’s hard to filter through how someone feels about you, and how much of that appeals to you more than what you feel for them.

Funnily enough, we might just want to hold on to someone for the sake of how they make us feel — and not so much about how much we might possibly feel for them.

It makes you wonder if relationships are ever truly mutual — whether or not you’re getting what you’re giving…and whether or not you’re getting what you’re expecting.

Something real comes from the act of compromising your expectations. Readjustments. Spine reticulations.

I’m not saying that lowering your expectations will solve all your problems; you should never settle for less. But there’s no harm in settling for something different.

We’ve beat the beaten track into submission.

Maybe it’s time for a little air.
