I learned that my parents stayed together even though they were very miserable. I think some of the misery goes on today on my dad's side. And I think that's partially why he still drinks. He's never really stood up to my mother. I think that's why I aggressively stand up for what I believe in now. If something's not worth getting all worked up over perhaps it's not worth doing at all.
If I can't get all excited about something, I'm just not going to do it. I'm not going to half ass anything, and that's how I approach relationships. If a girl is worth being in a relationship with then she's worth treating like a princess and committing 100%. Why is it so hard to find a girl that will do the same in return?
