|I fear I am only staying in this relationship to prove to everyone that I can actually make one work. Many people are waiting to tell me "I told you so" when we don't make it. And I don't want to give anyone to satisfaction.|
I do love my partner, but I don't know how I would feel about things if I knew I had a fall back plan? Sounds weird.
Just because two people love each other doesn't mean they are meant to be together.
But then on the flip side, I feel like my unwillingness to prove anyone right is actually making me work harder to make it work. Which in the end is going to make us stronger.
