Suffering Of Blossoming

The most difficult thing to me about intimate relationships is to observe my loved ones being in what looks to me like pain. Especially the pain of their own minds.  I so badly want them to see what they’re creating and to be happy instead.

This desire has led me to interject myself to the point where I can seem arrogant and even controlling and judgmental.

And they’re right. The “fault” isn’t me caring about them, but rather in me forgetting that this is what being a human being and learning looks like. The truth, I sometimes realize, is not that I am watching them suffer, but rather that I am watching them blossom.
