Unconditional love means that they are going to stay attracted to you, stay intrigued by you, stay committed to you — even when you’re wrinkled and gray.
Find someone who knows that you’re not perfect, and they’re not looking for perfect anyway.
When you leave everything you know behind, you will get lonely. The kind of loneliness that is palpable.
Let’s face it; breeding is not hard. However, not just anyone can raise a kid, and commit to them for a lifetime with unconditional love.
To tell someone they must love themselves first, is to be able to put a ‘one size fits all’ label on what self-love should look like.
I want you to know that no matter how many times I say I wanna be alone, it really only means that I need you beside me because you’re the only one who knows how to make me feel better.
I won’t keep destroying myself by putting the experience of finding unconditional love in another.
See, this life of single womanhood and single motherhood combined is a tough one. And with all the love and attention my beautiful son gives me, it actually still gets very lonely.
Even what most people would consider the worst of humanity and the worst circumstances in the world have Love in them—somewhere.
I am ready to be adored and adorned — loved so deeply and wisely that I could not have possibly dreamed it.
