I’ve often looked back on the who, what, when, where, and why that I’ve loved over the years and wondered if I had truly loved or not.
- It’s easy to dismiss the love you felt at 16 due to being just a kid.
- It’s easy to dismiss the love you felt for the crazy ex because the relationship was obviously unhealthy.
- It’s easy to dismiss the love you felt for the person you divorced because it obviously didn’t work out and most likely ended poorly.
- It’s easy to dismiss the love you felt for the person who should have been perfect for you in every way, but for some reason you just couldn’t make it work.
But the truth is, I have in fact loved many times in my life. And whether or not it was the love I always hoped to feel or the person I always hoped to feel it for, it was there. And it was, in its time, amazing.
