Never ask a question unless you are willing to hear and accept the answer.
Methinks the same applies to love.
However, the thing that I'm learning right now is to *not* hand myself (my self) over to another person... not in the sense that my life is dependant
on them. I have to make my own decisions separate from his.. they may, or may not, coincide with his needs/wants, but I have to do things for myself.
If not, **then I have nothing to give**.
I've never understood the words 'if you don't love yourself, then you can't love someone else.' Frankly, I think it's only half true. Right now,
I like myself.. that's as far as I've come. But I love him for who he is.. I will love him no matter what -- but that does not mean that I will
sacrifice my dreams if his path moves in a different direction (which is a very hard thing for me to come to terms with...) In fact, I will love him
more for having the strength to pull away, to know when enough is enough.
Everything is easier said than done. That's why actions speak louder than words. (That's also why I don't deal in promises anymore.. either do it,
or don't do it.. just don't tell me that you're gonna, or about how easy it is..)
"I do my thing,
and you do your thing.
I am not in this world
to live up to your
And you are not in this
world to live up to mine.
You are you and I am I,
And if by chance we find each other,
It's beautiful." -- Frederick S. Perls
