“You can't navigate me. I may do mean things, and I may hurt you, and I may run away without your permission, and you may hate me forever, and I know that scares the living shit outta you 'cause you know I'm the only real thing you got.”
~ Troy Dyer, Reality Bites
Love is hard, because love means giving up your desire to control another person. We can choose the safety of self-preservation, or we take our chances & risk it all.
Love takes a chance on another person – on their dreams, their baggage, their beauty and their mess. Choosing takes both wisdom and whimsy – enough wisdom to give you confidence, enough whimsy to throw caution to the wind.
