"iโ€™ve always felt like love was one of those desires that weโ€™re somehow not supposed to speak on or else weโ€™ll just wish it further away. but how strange is that?" A WORD

Happy Valentines Day! While I am hella single, this year I viewed V-day through fresh eyes. I grew up a die hard romantic, but over time I lost faith due to the lack of ~healthy love~ in my family environment. Once I realized I was letting fear dictate being available to love, so I took a step back to really evaluate what I needed to release so I could be a full romantic again (with ~healthy boundaries~ of course haha) BUT in that process of growing and blooming, trying to talk to others about love and wanting to cultivate healthy long lasting relationships was always difficult. I did not, and still don't, understand the apprehension around putting our pride aside to bask in the vulnerability of love. We all deserve to be safe and vulnerable in all loving spaces. Now having grown and feeling confident about wanting and deserving healthy and withstanding love, I look forward to my future love and wish that for us all. Cheers!

Oh my god * THIS * is the inner monologue that has me on the brink of insanity. Thank you. Feels like someone laid down a barefoot dreams blanket in my brain & said 'hey, I get it'. HVD to the hard lovers, despite the pining & pain, I wouldn't have it any other way ๐Ÿ’Œ
