Perfection is something you should always strive for, but you’re really not supposed to expect it from either yourself or others.
That tiny scratch on my brand new phone’s screen will be a constant reminder of this.
Let’s say having what I want is out of the question. Can I at least hope to someday want what I have?

I could keep doing this basically forever. And I think that’s a huge part of the problem.
There’s at least a dozen reasons why we really shouldn’t be together, why it couldn’t possibly work between us, and I think we’re both very well aware of that.
What I’m asking is, are you willing to give it a try anyway?
