state of the mind

There's something very common sense about relationships that seem to put them just beyond my grasp.

I think about the people I know who have been in relationships for long, long periods of time, or people who are consistently in relationship, and it is easy to see that they have the common sense that it takes to sustain in a relationship.

More likely than not, they are not neurotic, they have not been emotionally drained; they still view life with the optimism and non-melancholy hope characteristic of their type of person.

This is not to say that they are by any means not intelligent--no, not at all. They are some of the smartest people I know. Just in a different way.

I could be wrong, and I probably am, on many levels, but I do not contain this common sense. A person of intense emotion and frequent melancholia, I am intelligent, just as they are. But for whatever reason, I don't have what they have.

Doesn't mean that relationships and I are impossible. I think it just means that it's going to be a hell of a lot more of a struggle.
