I find it hard to really deeply adore someone who isn’t mean to me occasionally. Not, like constantly, but if someone is universally nice to me, its like, “Have you met me? I am annoying as fuck. Its okay to get frustrated with me sometimes, that is the normal response.”
And like, if you KNOW that someone doesn’t like you all the time, but they stick with you anyway, doesn’t that make you so much more secure that they like you enough to make up for those other times?
