"when I do I dream of drowning in the ocean
Longing for the shore where I can lay my head down
Inside these arms of yours"
being light enough to be carried easily is an extreme motivator
Oh and by the way, check out this blog, for a laugh or a good read, if you're feeling stressed. He's a really friendly guy.
Do you love anyone currently, or miss someone like crazy? Do they notice your eating habits (lack-of-eating habits)?
I'm feeling lonely so I'll share my story about J. Classic story of girl meets boy, they fall in love, boy dumps girl, girl is sad.
Almost two years ago, I fell hard in love and haven't been able to get up ever since. I wouldn't say it was love at first sight, but pretty close. The first thing I saw was bright blue eyes, such a contrast to my dark eyes, and I was instantly very attracted. (Guys with dark brown hair and blue eyes have always fascinated me.) I could go on and on about how amazing I thought J was, but basically he was funny, smart, caring, attractive, kind, and genuinely interesting. He told me he promised himself once that he would never get angry or lose his temper for the rest of his life. J made me feel cared about, special, telling me what all guys tell their girlfriends, showing his friends pictures of me even the ugly pictures.
After a few short weeks, it was time for J to return to his home about a 1000 miles away, but our relationship continued. He called almost daily, we once spent 7 hours talking on the phone, about anything and everything. I foolishly believed that we could overcome the barriers and troubles that the distance presented. He broke up with me nicely, I was barely listening, feeling disconnected from reality. He called an hour later to make sure I was okay.
The next 3 months of silence, no communication killed me. He called out of nowhere, on Christmas Eve. No mention of "where have you been", we fell into our old routine easily, it felt like he'd never left.
Fast forward to now. After months of sporadic contact, we're meeting again this summer, in about 50 days, I'll be with him for 3 weeks. It's my chance, I'm depending on those 3 weeks. My life right now is 50% eating disorder, 50% wanting J.
I need to be perfect, partially because of him. I have never told him any of my problems, I've done my best to hide my flaws, the instability of my mind. I need to keep up the illusion, he wouldn't want me if it broke. Nobody would.
