I was reading A Beautiful Mess this morning as I do everyday and I loved this post about love by Emma. Those are some powerful words from a person her age and I’d say she is pretty wise. Please go read the whole post. I only posted a small screenshot of what she actually said just to give you something to look at.
If I might add anything to this, I’d say, if you read this post and you still have an attitude of “yeah but” you might be missing the bigger picture. Your circumstances are no different from someone who has found real love. There are no “yeah buts” or people to blame it on. You really do have to work on yourself first and you really do have to let go of blame.
