Uncertainty makes me uncomfortable. I hate games where the risk of winning or losing is based on chance alone and I can’t do anything to modify the outcome. For me, uncertainty is anxiety.
For a long time I saw my relationship with Master as a source of uncertainty because I did not know how it would fare through hard or busy times.
Now, I realize that this perception is skewed. The sustainability of our relationship is not based on chance alone—and while it may be influenced by external circumstances—its success is predominantly based on the effort invested by both parties. Since we are both committed to each other, I am now realizing that our relationship should not be viewed a source of uncertainty but rather, a source of stability and comfort.
I am constantly surprised—pleasantly surprised—at the dynamic nature of this thing called love.
