Review: "Die For Someone" - Sam Tompkins
“Die For Someone” is the quintessential diary entry of someone so desperately wanting a person, any person, but knowing you are your worst enemy in love. It’s easy to think back on all the people who freely gave us their heart, and they were good enough, but we let them go because settling for good enough can be lonelier than standing in a room full of people. We see our friends getting into relationships, going on trips, having fun dates, and receiving cute texts from people they really care about, and they’re so excited for where the future might lead them, but sometimes we quietly wonder if they’re settling for mediocrity in exchange for a warm body in bed and an assured plus one. It’s a saying as old as time… you find somebody when you’re least expecting it. As comforting as that sounds, what happens if you’re not only expecting it, but searching for it? Is that love less genuine? Was it fate? Or do people convince themselves they love somebody just to not be alone anymore? Many people in this life will proclaim they’ve finally found the one with every new relationship, and it becomes glaringly apparent they’re going to keep saying it until it finally sticks, and then they can say they knew it from the moment they met. It’s not selfish to be alone. It’s not wrong not to settle. It’s okay to leave a relationship that leaves you unfulfilled. We all want to find that somebody that we would die for, but there’s great strength and maturity in becoming the person you want to be first and then waiting to find that love that is organic, real, and once in a lifetime.
