To truly love is to give everything. To feel accepted as you are. To feel like the world is half a world away. To feel like you can be anything and that anything is ok.
To lose that is devastation. To feel like you have nothing. To feel like you have no today and no tomorrow. And that yesterday was just a dream, one you forgot to take any notice of.
But through experiencing loss, you can learn how to love. Better. Stronger. With less fear and more vulnerability.
We have all lost people we love and will continue to do so. When you can take those feelings of loss and regenerate a more powerful love, you can start to understand why you lose at all.
Otherwise, nothing would make any sense. Then we would all be at a loss.
