    I love that and I know of the person I would give that to! They are SO imperfect, they know it, but I still love them because of it!

    forget love. it’s not worth the suffering that is losing/getting/keeping it. liking is better, kinder. thanks for liking my posts.

    Perfection is willing to fail many many times before you get it right… and even then someone in the world will have an opinion that it’s not all that great…

    So real – and it reflects the imperfect emotion that many would call “love,” but which actually has nothing to do with the real thing. Bravo!

      That man was an ass of the highest order. I’ll write about him one day.

      Thanks, booguloo, hope you’re well!
