More fighting with grandma was stressful. Going to The Melting Pot with residualentropy and her hubby and baby-full belly melted sooooo much of the stress away. :-D What an amazing place! I ate way too much, but it was worth it. They are another couple I'm really glad is breeding.

I turned my alarm on last night. I don't know what happened, but Hoyce woke me up on his way out the door reminding me it's Friday and I need to get up. Guh.

Know that Serenity prayer addicts use? (I'm not a big God person, so I kinda call it out to the Universe.) It's good for more than just addiction. I'm at the wisdom part. I've tried to change how I feel, and in some areas, I have been successful. But I can't stop loving and caring for people. Why this is doesn't matter. It just is. So I accept that I wear my heart on my sleeve. I accept that my feelings are not rational. And as an old friend told me, "I would rather be remembered as someone who loves too much than someone who loves too little." Should has no place here.


Should has no place here.

Exactly. You are who you are, and accepting who you are is a good thing. Work on what aspects of the expression of self are unhealthy, and love ALL parts of yourself regardless.

It's not easy, or even comforting, to be someone who loves intensely; however, I know without a doubt it's better than stifling that love, or tempering it into indifference. We folks with the capacity to love that much thrive when we let ourselves love. Love is a vulnerable-making, dangerous thing. But it's well worthwhile.
