The Truth about Love…

I walked nervously into the room to meet him for the very first time. I had a feeling about who he may be. It was that feeling that had been missing for a very long time. I was dangerously close to giving up, that it may never cross my path again, but there he was sitting waiting for me. It felt surreal from the instant we spoke, sharing freely who we were and what lead us to this moment. I had finally stepped in without fear, without doubt, without hesitation, my mended heart was ready to love again. I felt it.

I looked into his eyes and felt a sense of calm, like coming home after a long time away. It felt right, just as everyone who has ever loved has felt, when it was.

We all have our feeling hurt, our hearts bruised or even broken into tiny little shards of glass never to be the same again. Maybe the broken pieces are not meant to be put back in place, for we are never the same after heart break. When we accept our cracks, it shows us that we can still love the imperfect, the once broken. Who we are doesn’t fade with cracks, we just need to find someone willing to fill them with love and understanding. That is pure raw unfiltered love.

So when your heart is shattered on the ground, gently kneel down and gather the pieces to keep them safe, collect your thoughts and summon up the courage to rebuild what you once knew.

When you cross paths with that person, maybe even your person, and you can feel an emotional storm brewing in the distance. Take a deep breath and allow the storm to blow through you. Allow the ominous clouds of emotion to form around you, you have no control of the wind that creates them, so let the storm begin…enveloping you in it.

Passionate Love is a force meant to be much more powerful than you have ever imagined. It’s love coming for you.

The only question is…are you brave enough to surrender to it?

Ed Sheeran says it beautifully…

Loving can hurt, loving can hurt sometimes
But it’s the only thing that I know
When it gets hard, you know it can get hard sometimes
It is the only thing that makes us feel alive
We keep this love in a photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts are never broken
And time’s forever frozen still
So you can keep me
Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans
Holding me closer ’til our eyes meet
You won’t ever be alone, wait for me to come home
Loving can heal, loving can mend your soul
And it’s the only thing that I know, know
I swear it will get easier,
Remember that with every piece of you
Hm, and it’s the only thing we take with us when we die
Hm, we keep this love in this photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts were never broken
And time’s forever frozen still
So you can keep me
Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans
Holding me closer ’til our eyes meet
You won’t ever be alone
And if you hurt me
That’s okay baby, only words bleed
Inside these pages you just hold me
And I won’t ever let you go
Wait for me to come home
Wait for me to come home
Wait for me to come home
Wait for me to come home
You can fit me
Inside the necklace you got when you were sixteen
Next to your heartbeat where I should be
Keep it deep within your soul
And if you hurt me
Well, that’s okay baby, only words bleed
Inside these pages you just hold me
And I won’t ever let you go
When I’m away, I will remember how you kissed me
Under the lamppost back on Sixth street
Hearing you whisper through the phone,
“Wait for me to come home.”
