Tribute n˚37

Love is always an option.

When we understand that contrast is part of the human experience, we stop using it as an excuse not to love someone. That's what unconditonal love is.

When we do nvot love someone, we are the ones who do not feel the love.

Love is not to be deserved because loving is the ultimate cure we give to ourselves, first.

When we say that we should stop loving to protect ourselves, it implies that love is week. But love is fierce. Love is vulnerable. Love always loves. It never changes with the seasons.

Our love did not create any negative results. Ever. Our love caused love. And that often goes with expectations, to count and rely on someone. Or that they would just love us back. When these expectations are not met, it hurts. And that also, is human.

When people are mean, or treat us unfairly, this has nothing to do with our love. It has everything to do with theirs. 

Do not ever question your love because of the absence of theirs.

Love is always the best option.

Tribute n˚31

You and I, me and we

How “I” stands big and tall. A pillar, the lighthouse watching the city go to sleep.

How “we” is soft and sWEet, symphonic, blissfully deep. 

“we” knows about modesty. About fruitful pain, compromising expansion, strong acceptance and vulnerable equality.

“we” never forgets about “I”. It could not live without it and knows it. “we” appreciate “I” and never takes it for granted, as “we”, without “I”, might never be.

“I” forgets about “we”. Only from time to time, never on purpose. Don’t judge me. 

See, “I” thrIves on “we”. It feels magnified, electrified while developing through “we”. 

It finds no ending to the horizon of what this addition might be. 

one+one=3. You and me, and the small “we” created lately. Maybe we renounced when “we” became too big and tried to compete with me. 

I-we hurts. Grief of what this person could be. Until I realise that the “we” that you made flourish within me always will be.

I know it's Monday, but do not forget to spread the love, dear self-lovers!
