but we do it
"you know that place between sleep and awake? that place where you still remember dreaming? that's where i'll always love you... peter pan. that's where i'll be waiting."
you can think that someone is so wonderful and amazing that you don't want to face them in your dreams, right? i'm pretty sure that's why i didn't sleep last night. i was afraid.
accepting others' decisions isn't always easy, but we do it. we do it, because we love them.
some people never understand what it is to truly love someone. it's giving without expectation. it's putting their needs and wants before your own. it's the need to protect them from the sad things in the world.
now, i'm not entirely selfless. i still have my bouts of jealousy, of anger, of confusion, of fear. i'm selfish and far from indestructible. but that doesn't mean that i stop loving.
i'm blessed to have the people that i have in my life. some are close, some are far away. i love them. that doesn't make me weak or broken. that makes me strong and confident. that makes me kind and tender. that makes me brave.
that twinkle in my eye? that's love, that's hope, that's knowing what i'm capable of. that's excitement for this adventure.
i'm still learning and growing. i like that about me.
