While the post stayed based on totally true event in my life, it morphed some into a post on my outlook on relationships. Yes, to the particular man that was my muse, I would definitely leave a key under the mat if he wanted to “come home” so to speak, but I think that the post speaks just as much to my growth. It speaks to my unwillingness to live someone else’s life or walk 3 steps behind.
The solar system metaphors and similies just came to me and I ran with it. However I really think of relationships as Venn Diagrams. Two whole circles that have a point of intersection. As long as the two circles have a healthy intersection you have a great relationship (while I’m specifically speaking of romantic, it holds true for friendship as well).
So that’s how the post came to fruition. Thanks for reading.
