I had a 2-hour phone talk with my bestie last night. Because she might be the one who most understands my feelings at this time. We had a wonderful conversation together.
I thought that,
After those sleepless nights, she won't be able to love someone tenderly and naturally as she did before.
After all the broken, she wouldn't heal and recover that much.
After all the disappointments, she will stop hoping and stop expecting.
Her garden had been destroyed, she didn't know how to grow the flowers again.
Everything turns out to be different. Love #revitalizes her. Love revitalizes us. She started to love again, to hope again, and to #blossom again, in a "natural, simple, free-flowing" way as she said. We need "something that allows us to be ourselves without questions". “We do not heal the past by dwelling there; we heal the past by living fully in the present.” - Marianne Williamson. Real love makes us feel accepted, secure, valued and valuable. It touches our hearts and inspires us to be our best selves. We all love, like the first time we love.
We look at love from different angles. Some of us find love is painful and scary. Some of us say "no, love is beautiful and magical, love heals us." I do believe all the aforementioned things are different aspects of love. If you look at a heart shape from a bird's-eye view, you will find it's beautiful. It won't be beautiful if you look at it from the left or right angle, it will be distorted.
The flowers still grow, and blossom, if you nurture them by time, and by #love. Give it #time.
