Care & Instructions

When I was little, clothes came with a little tag that said ‘no bleach’ ‘do not dry’, very basic instructions. These days you might have two or three tags with ‘Care & Instructions’ as just the title of the tag.

As I have evolved as an adult, my care & instructions have also gotten more specific. I have learned what I can and cannot deal with. Early on it was basic ‘no cheating’. Well cool. I didn’t marry a cheater so I should have been happy right?

Pfff, wrong.

Now my Care & Instructions are more complex.

Love me. Don’t just love me, tell me. Show me what that looks like in your world.

Talk to me

Take an interest in who I am and what I want in my life.

Hold me. Often.

Allow me to do the same for you. This is important.

Let me be a part of your world and not just a spectator. My ex husband kept me apart from his life. I get it. It is much safer that way. You can’t get hurt. This is why we fell apart.

My care and instructions are fluid. They change with me but the premise stays the same, much like the chores of washing clothes. Sometimes you need more or less care. But the basic care is that I want to matter to someone.

I want to be the reason that they smile sometimes. Not all the time. I am not that self centered. I love hard. I love with every fiber of my being. And it doesn’t take a lot to get, once you make it past the walls. I have staying power. I don’t want multiple owners. Just one. And I love him more than anything in the world.
