//loving you//



... i used to think i'd look back on loving you as the hardest thing i'd ever done. 

but truth is, loving you was easy. was in fact the easiest thing in the world. 

it was the attempt not to love you that nearly killed me. the attempt to rationalize and to make sense of what was never meant to make sense. the attempt to ignore and silence and make little what was as big--as vital--as anything in this life can ever hope to be...

Well, it is so very beautiful and I think it captures what a lot of people don't know how to articulate. Nicely done.

It is so reassuring and comforting to know I'm not the only one that has struggled w/ letting myself just love, simply just that, instead of fighting it, for reasons that confuse me.
So beautifully written, so honest.
Thank you :)

awesome. You are so talented at voicing thoughts that we all have a bit of. I may just quote you on this!

Oh my goodness, this could've come straight out of my heart. How do you do that? You have such a beautiful way of voicing the things that a lot of us struggle with. You're so right that loving is the easy part; it's struggling to deal with forgetting him and moving on that's the hard part.
