I Am Able to Love, Despite Everything

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 209 People

    In Fact...

    Sometimes I feel as though I love too much. I forgive too quickly, and I love too intensely. I only set myself up to be hurt, time and time again. It's not that I never learn; I'm fully aware that by letting another person in, I'll probably end up hurt once again. But I usually...

    My Friend

    Your words sing to me. Their melody is enchanting. It echoes it's sweetness in my ears. It touches my heart. And my heart listens, but is wary. For it is still hurting and uncertain. Your words of passion are mmmmmmmmmmmm...Your words stroke me. Your words caress my soft, soft...

    Promise

    My life has made me stronger and wiser. Pain is like exercise, it makes you tougher if you embrace it.  It makes you tired if you try to run from it. I am OK, I can love better now.  I have something to contrast love with and I know what I don't want to be. ...
