I’m honest and outspoken, I reveal all of my emotions, I hide no pain or sorrow. He’s kept and humble, reserved and guarded with expressions. He’s detail oriented in order to get to his core, I’m headlined I reveal my core. In so many ways we love each other so differently, but our compassion is the same. we bend, sway, and be victorious together. We fight, yell, scream, and curse in defense of each other. Without me there is no him, and without him there is no me. It makes you wonder how we can be so much alike yet so very different in love with one another?
Somebody asked, “Why is it we can ALWAYS and will ALWAYS have a voice for our children(I’m adding “others”) but sometimes remain silent when it comes to our OWN well-being?
For the first time in a long time I opened up an additional piece of hurt in my heart to be honest enough with self and say:
- Because LOVE is living for somebody not with somebody.
- Because SOMETIMES we just know who is and is not worth our energy.
- Because SOMETIMES we don’t know what #SelfLove and #SelfProtection (boundaries) are until they are crossed.
- Because SOMETIMES being what we didn’t have to someone else gives us a reason to live.
It felt good to feel so free and peaceful. Calm and serene to accept that, “Yes I have been hurt and burned before too. But I didn’t give up on love, I didn’t give up on myself. I knew the better part of me needed to be released, it needed to be good I was feeling the way that I felt. Being able to understand and know why we love self less helps us start loving self more. We begin to fill in those voids with the correct type of love with the correct type of people at the correct time and the correct reasons. No matter how far apart and whatever reason the distance be it small or great… physical form may be detached but heart, mind, body (when you think you feel, when you feel your body senses), and soul are still attached.
Remember LOVE is internal (#MayaAngelou) in order for it to be eternal
