Lately, all I do is work and it is so exhausting. Having two jobs is a complete catch-22; I make good money (most of the time) but I’m definitely beginning to feel the strain on the relationship I have with Anthony. It’s not that we fight more or I know him less, it’s just not possible to have the same relationship we had before I started working 50-60 hours a week. I see less of him which is so hard, and sometimes when I get caught up in my day I almost forget to think about him. This doesn’t scare me because I know how much I love him and that I’ll never really forget about him, but what does scare me is that he could be forgetting me. I’m also a very emotional person and whenever I see him I almost break down right there because my heart is just brimming with adoration for him. But Anthony isn’t like that. Where I could honestly gush for hours about how much I love my boyfriend, he just kind of smirks and pats me on the knee. I think it’s just because he’s a man, and I’m a woman who analyzes every single sentence and gesture and tone, but it still kind of blows. I know Anthony loves me and I can’t wait for us to move in together so our schedules aren’t as much of a problem, but until then it’s really hard to be without him so much. He’s my best friend, my love and truly my other (better) half; I really hate being apart from him.
