"I don’t know what lies around the bend, but I’m going to believe that the best does."
My life was lonely, yes, but it seemed less painful. Less of the drama and emotional baggage bull. I wonder if it is all just me, my fault. But deep down in some precipice of my heart, I know it’s not. Maybe in some ways, I allowed it, which is so much worse. I allowed it to affect me, damage me, and scar me. I feel like I’ve been searching, no, yearning for I’ve been slowly losing when I’m with you. I want it back, I want… Me.

"There are no shortcuts to authentic love. You cannot say “I love you, but I am only willing to love you this much!” You cannot say you love me if you have written hundreds of conditions into your heart. “I will only love you if times are good. I will only love you if blessings are unmistakably abundant. I will only love you if life is easy. I will only love you when the course of life runs smooth.” That is not love. Stop bargaining your way into loving me. Stop giving me only your excesses. Stop giving me only your crumbs."
