I ran across this quote earlier this week. I don’t know who originally penned it. However, I know that it is the absolute truth. For most of my life, I lived with an erroneous assumption that true love doesn’t ever cause pain…. Then the day came when I was the one who caused the pain… and love still met me where I was at. Love looked beyond my faults and said, “I still choose you.”
I see love so differently now. I recognize that love is not perfection. Rather it is unconditional acceptance on your darkest day.
