I refuse to be afraid of my depth, my heart, the things that stir me deeply. I choose to instead embrace the wholeness of me from the darkest thoughts and pain to the kindness that I give freely to anyone willing to receive it.
I will grieve for those I've lost both living and dead, letting the love I've felt push through my chest and let the tears come. Falling like the rain of a turbulent storm that clears a path I couldn't see before.
I will never give up on love or stop looking for it - both within and without. I will never stop loving someone because it hurts. I will let love be my teacher, my healer, my all. I release my fear of pain knowing that it serves as a reminder that love will always prevail.
