We have done well, these past few years together. Not quite two years, but time has been passing so pleasantly that it's hard to count without a calendar. Our relationship began, and continued, and was recently re-based, on a mutual understanding.
We are what we are. We seek no advantages over each other. We care about each other. We respect each other. We trust each other.
Yet, we walk separate paths. They seem one, much of the time, but that is only our fortune favoring us. It can be a wonderful thing, walking our paths together, yet it comes with dangers as well. Humans are not always the best creatures at seeing what is, especially what is within themselves.
So, we share our lives with each other.... but an understanding as well. We do not own each other, but instead are open to what is best for each of us.
It's a challenge, to be that honest. A good one.
