Above anything else, choose to be with him. Words are cheap when they’re not backed up with action. Don’t leave him on his weakest days because he’s broken. Humans, in general, are meant to be broken so they can experience a breakthrough. Your relationship isn’t true and strong if you leave because you’re not open to this side of him. He doesn’t have to be always strong and manly for you, and vice versa.
The secret to having a long-lasting romantic relationship is to be mutually good and true to one another. Recognize your role in the relationship and be committed to it. You have to be openly vulnerable to your other half as you’re vulnerable to yourself. Ever wondered why you couldn’t maintain a relationship for at least a year? If you find yourself always getting into a new relationship, it would either be you’re not ready to be in one or you’re choosing the wrong person for you.
As you enter your twenties, one of your the plans that cross your mind will probably be finding a good partner for life. At some point in this new chapter of your life, you want to meet and be with a person who will love and stay with you despite the ugly parts of yourself. You want to invest in a person who’ll fight for you and support all your goals in life. You want to finally make a decision to settle with someone who’ll be there when you need a shoulder to cry on. Your other half, as they say.
