I pursue many passions and have many great loves in my life so far. And I thank God for this position of privilege to be able to love so many things in life… even though I’m terribly imperfect. Imperfection is a good thing, I think, because it lets me really experience life. If everything is perfect, life would be so bland.
But imperfection can break us. When we keep chasing our ideal of perfection, in our own eyes, or the eyes of society, or those we care about, we will never quite fit in and be happy.
However, I’ve discovered this… When we love more, there would be more love to give; and we become the perfect attraction to the things / people that we want attracted to us. We no longer need to chase after them, but they will come after us.
Then again, love shouldn’t be a blackmailing transaction where it becomes a weapon for guilt. Love is the answer when we know the questions to ask it for.
