That’s not how I think love should work. That’s not how I think healthy relationships should look like. And I don’t want to be putting that kind of pressure on you. I don’t want you to feel like you’re going to have to carry weight of two peoples’ worlds on your shoulder. I don’t want you to feel like you need to giving 200% to this relationship just because I won’t carry my own weight. I don’t want you to think that you’re going to have to constantly be hustling and working double time just because you don’t expect me to be doing the same. Know that whatever you’re going to give to this relationship, I’m going to give just as much in return. Know that however much of yourself you choose to invest in our love, you’re getting the same kind of investment from me.
At the end of the day, I’m not really looking for a knight in shining armor. I’m not a damsel in distress and I definitely don’t need saving by anyone. What I’m looking for is a genuine partner; someone who I can hold hands with as we face the world together. I’m not looking for a man who is going to solve all of my problems for me. I want a man who can look into my eyes and tell me that I can do whatever I set my mind out to do. I want a man who isn’t going to serve as a roadblock between me and my dreams.
I don’t want a man who is going to go out there to do all of the work on my behalf. He just needs to be a guy who isn’t going to get in the way of my work. He has to be someone who is going to look at me as I hustle and just be proud of me. I’m not looking for a savior because I don’t really need saving. I’m looking for a genuine life partner. I’m looking for someone who I can really build a future with; not someone who is going to build my future for me.
