F A I L U R E. Who knows the dreaded feeling of failing to reach your goals, or plain and simple, screwing up royally?
God know's how many times I've failed in my life. Miserably. Gracefully. Sloppily. Any adjective fits well here.
Ali and I have been living apart for a few months now as he explores opportunities half-way across the globe in Qatar. I miss him dearly and I count down the days until we are together again. So this shoot below didn't come out of nowhere. The idea that loving someone to the extent that you lose your sense of identity doesn't resonate with me. Being away from your loved ones is difficult, but it doesn't mean that you shrivel away and refrain from living your life to the fullest. I think that in any relationship, for it to be long-lasting, strong and mutually beautiful, two people must stand side-by-side on equal footing, cheering each other on in the pursuit of each other's dreams.
