We all have our own paths to travel. Only you can know how to navigate yours. There are no pat answers that apply to everyone (hell, the answer that works today may well not be the one that works tomorrow). I personally believe that if you’re not finding bliss in the direction you’re headed, you should change direction. Life should not be an endless struggle but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t require hard work.
I’ve looked for love in a lot of the wrong places. It has always found me when I was least prepared for it. But I kinda think it found me because I had opened myself up to it by looking. It’s a cause and effect kind of thing. Regardless, I find I attract good love only when I’m most comfortable in my own skin.
And as one last little thing, I found this to be as amazing an exploration of our broken selves as anything I’ve ever read.
