be fierce in your love, and gentle with your judgements…
I do my best everyday to live by these words.
They have been with me so long that I feel they are etched into the heart of me, into my very soul.
I have great respect and reverence for these words.
They have caused me great heartache (because when you love fiercely and it doesn’t work out, or the love isn’t returned, it hurts. Terribly.).
The have also brought me unconditional and soul shaking joy, and that outweighs the heartache every time.
