Two to tango

After an inspiring weekend in Stockholm, I am back in Uppsala to get rolling again. It is early and I am sitting here with my tea and thinking about life and everything in it. But to be more specific, I am thinking about love. What is so confusing when you start to think about love is that it is such an evil swirl. You just keep swirling further and further down. Because usually, you won't have the answer. You want to have the answer, because you are told that "you can only find it within yourself and as long as you know what you are doing then it is fine". But here is the beauty of love ladies and genetlemen, there is absolutely nothing you can do. You can fight for yourself, so that you feel that you have done everything that you possibly could, but you can never do something on your own when it involves another person. It takes two to tango... So it doesn't matter if you are trying to work out the best way to make 30000 miles seem shorter, trying to come back to where you once were before you cheated or just simple trying to make a relationship work. Because as long as you are doing it on your own, you will get nowhere, at least not in your relationship. So the next time you say "Well I have done everything I can." Think to yourself; has your partner done everything they can? and to tell you the truth, most probably... Because otherwise they wouldn't be in this relationship. Because why would someone love you and yet not walk that extra mile? So of course they have!!! But, it is maybe just not as far as you would have hoped them to walk for you. That is what it is, this is what relationships are all about.  So stop putting down all those extra miles you are walking for someone who is not and start walking them for yourself and sooner or later you will find someone who is walking those miles next to you.
