“Because you, my love,
you’ve shown me unconditional love.”

A wise friend told me that to be free of my body’s prison I need to first embrace myself and truly connect with all the parts of me. The good. The bad. The ugly. Even the ones I wish would remain in the shadows. Though I’m not entirely sure how I will accomplish this feat, I know I’m going to try. If I can learn to understand why I am a prison, then maybe I can learn to pick a few locks and be. Truly. Free.

And that is what I want. With you. For me. For the future. Because you, my love, you’ve shown me how I deserve happiness. You’ve shown me unconditional love. It’s about damned time I do the same in return.

You remind me of my strength,
I might as well put it to good use.

One thought on “Unconditional

  1. I think in this situation, the phrase “fake it till you make it” comes well into play. Let yourself be, and be okay with that. If you want a cake, buy a whole cake and eat it by yourself and act like you are happy with it. Sit with yourself. Spend time with yourself and just let it be. Meditate. Let yourself be, and love whatever yourself is being. That’s a great way to connect with yourself until you become free.
