I don’t consider that love is all we’d like. I would like honesty. Loyalty. A shared worth system. A willingness to speak concerning the exhausting issues and stick round when issues get messy. I would like experience or die individuals in my life, and that’s not nearly love.
I don’t consider in “love and lightweight” as an answer to something. Options require essential pondering and brave discourse. Options require recognizing intersections and pursuing justice. Justice requires a willingness to dismantle methods of oppression, no matter it takes.
I’ll not consider in these performed out platitudes, however I do consider in LOVE—in loving myself wholly and with out situation, not “when” however NOW. In proudly owning my price and nurturing, validating, and hyping myself.
I consider in extending that love outward in the direction of the individuals I *select* and inventive expressions that align with my soul. In using compassion and empathy, EVEN as I maintain individuals accountable for his or her actions. In loving myself sufficient to chop individuals out of my life.
I consider in love as a part of a full spectrum of feelings—within the vulnerability of an open coronary heart, the protection of a guarded coronary heart, and the nuance of every little thing in between.
Love is the reply, generally. And different occasions it’s a part of a posh equation that requires a bit of bit greater than what love itself can provide.
