How can I believe in love when all around me relationships just don’t work out? How can I have hope when my mom is on her second divorce, my father is working on one of his own, and my niece’s father is the scum of the Earth, my roommate’s boyfriend of two years dumps her, my friends from high school have all broken up gotten together and broken up again? How am I supposed to just believe that someday someone will love me until the day I die when every other guy has let me down? Even you, clever and sweet and charming, don’t call me anymore. So how am I supposed to believe that it will all be okay? I love my parents and my sister and my friends and maybe even you but it isn’t easy. I love me, right now, just the way I am, until the day I die. Some days that’s enough but not everyday. All the ones I love are so far away. Even you. Especially you. So forgive me if I have my doubts.
