We are afraid of truth, afraid of fortune, afraid of death, and afraid of each other. Our age yields no great and perfect persons. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

I so want to know what you have left to say.

Here's mine:

__________________________________________

I want you to know I loved.

More than anything I ever did, I learned to love and love hard.

I was born loving.

I hurt. I was scared, worried, distrustful. I closed off.

I didn’t know how to love, I said.

Then I fought to love again.

I lost, I thought I lost, I gave up, I walked away. I threw it away.

Then I loved again.

I didn't want to love. I had every reason to not love. Everyone said to not love. It’s ok. We would understand.

I loved anyway.

For no reason!

And then, I realized that through all of it,

through all of learning to love you…

I was learning to love me, hard.

And then, I started living.
