Sometimes it’s easy to focus on negative things and forget what’s good. I’m super awesome guilty at doing that myself. I didn’t know where else to post this, so I’m sorry if “emotional” really translates to “sad emotional” as opposed to any emotional = I just think some people might have some really nice stories that we could enjoy hearing about, and/or it might remind people of happy moments.
I don’t know. I just thought it might be nice to share something really cute/sweet/unexpected that your significant other has done for you that made you feel better or made you especially happy that you were with them?
Mine is weird and probably won’t make too much sense, but here it is:
I was at his house, and I felt amazingly sick for some random reason. I get hot when I feel sick, so I was sitting in the bathroom on the side of the tub and my feet on the tile floor because it was cold. I had my elbows on my knees and I was just staring at the floor. He knocked and asked if I was okay, and I said I felt really nauseous. He said he was sorry I felt so sick, and asked if he could come in and sit with me. I had the door locked because if I were to throw up, I didn’t really want him seeing that; it’d just make things worse. haha. I said it was okay, I’d probably be fine soon. He said he’d really like to be with me so he could try and help me feel better. So I told him that I’d like him to be there, but didn’t want him to see me throwing up if I had to, because that’d just be unpleasant and awkward for me in addition to the crappy feeling of throwing up. He asked if I was really sure, and that he’d really like to come in and didn’t mind if he saw me throwing up and said he’d want to try and comfort me if I had to. I said I’d be okay and that he could go work on a song or something. He said “Okay. I guess I’ll be in my room then, if you need anything.” kind of sadly. I thought he might have walked away, but I couldn’t hear.
After at least 10 seconds of silence later, I was sure he had walked away. I opened my eyes, which were still angled towards the floor, and I saw that he had slid one foot under the door (there’s a pretty big gap between the floor and the door) and so just his toes were coming in from underneath, like he was trying to be with me without going against my wishes and coming in, but he was really trying in some kind of way to just be closer to me. It was so cute and silly that despite feeling really sick, I started laughing and it made me feel better.
It was such a silly and sweet gesture, but it meant a lot to me. Not only was it really amusing looking, and such an unusual thing to think to do, but it showed me how much he really genuinely cared, and loved me so much that he’d want to hold me even if I was a sick and throwing up mess. It made me really happy he was my boyfriend (now fiance). ^_^
That was mine! Okay, now it’s your turn. go!
