After a heart to heart in the Volvo concerning relationships, we (Callie and I) have once again struck upon the fact that love is not always easy as well as that it is not love to allow someone to continue on in hurtful, dangerous manners and keep silent. It is not well to claim something and act contrarily. It is also unpopular to admit that one cares more for ego, schedule, preference, or recognition than truthful love, although it is spoken loudly by the actions of many. As we elucidated on our thoughts, we discovered the imperatives of receiving love are to recognize it and accept it. BUT you cannot demand someone love you one way and reject all other real, heartfelt forms of affection that someone offers you. You cannot reject the hard conversation birthed out of honest, informed concern, issuing from a friend with your best interest in mind, simply because it hurts to be convicted. Don’t ask for roses and reject the love letter, blinding yourself with pretty, fleeting things when it’s spelled out.
My name is Laura. I am 25, a wife, musician, and vagabond. I am of the opinion that the paths we take are processes to becoming; what we become is the result of what we are living for. What we do is what we believe. I believe in Love, and I am learning how to do so.
