Relationship with yourself
Past experiences from relationships have taught me what I need to learn to have a relationship with myself before I can have one with anyone else. I’ve seen people come and go from my life because I was considered, “complicating” so they didn’t want to deal with me. I went through a lot of different relationships, but when I sit and think about why they didn’t work out I realize that I just didn’t love myself enough. I was always doing for the other person, always trying to please them, and wasn’t worried about myself like I should have been. I always got the short end of the stick in the relationship and was feeling insecure all the time. My self-esteem slowly faded over the years. The last relationship that I was in lasted about four months, it was then that I realized I can’t keep giving out love when I’m not even loving myself anymore. I realized that I need to work on myself.

You see, it all started with a text and a great idea.”

Lennon’s attention abruptly changed from the conversation with Catori to something wedged in a shrub. The stems of the shrub were mushy and frail and no longer full of life. Lennon removed his facial mask as he walked to the shrub, crouched down, struggling to pull the item free. It was obvious the shrub wasn’t going to lose.
A Gift from Beyond
Susan met Rodger on a cold, snowy winter day. Susan just finished her shift at Sophie’s Hair Salon, where she worked as a hair stylist. Her friends had been messaging in their group chat about a new dating app, Safe Dating, where people could meet and chat over instant messenger. If they hit it off, they would arrange a date at a venue sponsored on the app. Different businesses had applied to be “Safe date locations”, and had to meet certain criteria to be approved, such as helping women arrange for transportation home. Some even offered safe shuttle services.
A letter for my valentine.
Teneal I remember the first time I saw your pictures and how your smile enchanted me. I remember the first time we spoke, and how you left me without a reply for a day.
Nights like this are not common. The cold and wet mist hung on the trees like an old man’s beard in an ancient Northwest Forest. The little black book was chilled through her leather skin while her once-crisp vanilla pages made the crispiest sound were now sopping with gritty road water.

Just another typical Valentine’s Day for me..... I remember the sun. Yellow, round, hot and bright. The moon was round too. Cold. Cold nights and full moons.
For many of us, our hometowns are dots on rugged maps, our life trajectories as linear as airport runways. We know our best friends from elementary school, and we see our family and neighbors at the grocery store. Many of us have a regular order at a local coffee shop or gas station, and the people inside might even know us too.
