It’s important to Love fiercely…but not insanely.
Gently, but not passively.
To love without caring too much about outcomes, without tangling up in politics or labels, insecurities or reaction.
To be vulnerable but not so much that that openness turns to need and suffocates both parties with expectation.
To step back for air at times without turning away.
To honour each person’s space and need to be their (our) own person.
To admit when we are lonely, scared, wrong, sorry.
To regularly exercise trust, despite all risks and against all odds.
To learn, let go and forgive (ourselves) each day.
To be brave enough to choose joy wherever possible.
I have but one request of you, lover: to see me as new as each day is.
Because I am becoming.
I am a walking contradiction, every day reborn.
Love elephant and want to go steady?
