I was thinking about my last post, hoping my point came through that we can wear a mask to be loved but can't love in return. I thought about the feeling of letting go and opening your heart. And then, this Bob Marley quote showed up...
""You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible."
Bob said everything I wanted to say, and said it better (hey, this is Bob Marley we're talking about). No sooner did that one blow me away, than another Bob Marley quote showed up. Bob speaks specifically for every man who loves a woman.
"You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters?
She's not perfect - you aren't either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can.
She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break - her heart.
Good words, said so well.
