I hope love, for you, is more than “accidents” and hard lessons. I hope you can frame it instead as a wise teacher. Most of what I’ve learned about myself was from falling in and out of love. If you’re lucky, each person brings a new mirror to the places light hasn’t reached, and pushes you to somewhere/something different, better, more raw—regardless of how and when it ends. I didn’t realize how much marriage, and divorce, would impact my views on staying, and going, or how much trying again would test all the lessons I thought I’d learned. Much like healing, and liberation, the work is never done, there is no final destination in love. It is a never ending story filled with moments, and touches, and magic, and lessons, and learning, and staying, and going, and trying. Lots and lots of trying.
