Learning to love

I learn that people will change

I learn that people will try and then stop trying

I learn that people will try to change you

I learn that people will be dissatisfied

I learn that people will love you the way they define love

I learn that a lack of confidence won’t change because someone loves you

 

I learn that only self-love inspires real happiness

I learn that forgiveness takes time and sometimes, no time at all

I learn that real love endures, when it doesn’t it wasn’t love

I learn that love SHOULD be enough

I learn that if people will hear what they want to hear

I learn that people don’t know better, sometimes, you can teach or you can let go

I learn that people will operate on principles they grew up with. This is ok.

I learn that I can love over and over again. I am built that way.

I learn that the day I stop believing in love, I wither.
