Being 17 is seriously the worst. You’re basically too old to be considered a child ,but not old enough to be legal. August, come alreaddddddy.
In my opinion, the comfortable stage of a relationship is the hardest. Why? Once you’re both comfortable, the effort decreases. You’ve seen each other at the worst and the best. Both of you are basically used to each other that butterflies don’t swirl in your tummy anymore or conversations start to be more simple and basic. Everything starts to become like a daily routine of the same old stuff both of you did the day before. Even so, feelings may start to fade and the interest that both of you have of each other decreases. This stage is a challenge. It’s a test to see which one of you is willing to make the relationship work no matter how things are. It’s best that both are winners instead of having one that loses.
Simply, cherish each other. Make time for each other. Don’t ignore each other. Help each other grow. Make them smile and laugh. Sing them a song. Be a complete dork. Share your love and open your heart. No matter how busy you are, at least let the other know what you’re up to. Just love them because he or she was the person you put in effort for to make you and her/him a reality.
Song of the Day: Latch by Disclosure <3
"You lift my heart up when the rest of me is down. You enchant even when you’re not around..I feel we’re close enough. Can I lock in your love?…Now I got you in my space. I won’t let go of you. Got you shackled in my embrace. I’m latching onto you…”
**This song has been stuck in my head ever since I heard it in Keone’s and Mari’s dance video and I just had to post this.
