People ask me how I can be so joyful, so peaceful.
I have been, and witnessed others, in the depths of despair.
But I do not have to stay there.
I do not need to hang my suffering like a badge of valour to convince others
that I know what it is to be deep, intense, and in grief.
I am already that depth. I already know the pain we can all meet.
Love is not just fluff and bubble.
Love is fierce and strong.
Intense, and long.
Inner and Outer.
To the Real Lover.
The Real Love Deal.
