I think that the hurt is worth it because you have
opened yourself up and been completely volnerable. That is hard to do. Many of us keep our guard up and that makes you bitter after a while. Plus I always (almost always) have felt I would rather be a little naive and get hurt than be untrusting and paranoid. Which is what I have experienced before, which made me very jealous and I was miserable. I had a right to be, but that is besides the point. I was not happy.
I am happy now. I have a wonderful husband who I can be completely honest with. He has stood behind me through out the whole time of my fibromyalgia. He never thought of me as lazy as some husbands do. He knows that I love to work and that I would if I could. In fact as I was working this summer and fall (for the first time in seven years) he kept wanting me to quit. He was worried that it would be too much for me. But I loved it, just can't do it in the cold of winter with my fibromyalgia.
I am rambling aren't I? I think to be able to accept complete honest to goodness love, we have to be
open to it.
open our hearts and
open our minds. We have to also be able to accept the other person for who they are. As they accept us for who we are. We know that neither one is perfect, and there will be squabbles. There will be hardships, but you stick together no matter what. Life isn't easy for anybody, that is the truth. So love can be hard, but it can be...
